Our goal to make the Stack Exchange Network a great place to produce high-quality Q&A sites, no matter what language they speak. But we are still predominantly an English-speaking organization and we need to understand the underlying premise of these sites.

We allow the creation of non-English sites, but we have a few requirements.

Non-English Proposal Requirements

  • The proposal title and description must be in English. It is okay to include a translation into the native language.
  • The sample questions and comments can be in your own language.
  • Any related Area 51 discussions have to be conducted in English (or translated before posted).
  • If the site is created, any posts on the meta site must be in English (or translated before posted).

I know this is not ideal; It's all a bit of a compromise in lieu of saying "Sorry you cannot create proposals for non-English sites until we have a proper localization interface."

For details, see

Is it OK to have non-English question and answers in Area 51?

Does this still apply? Newer posts tell me no. – OldBunny2800 May 16 '16 at 0:46
@OldBunny2800 Unfortunately, we are not currently accepting proposals for non-English sites — See Internationalization 'State of the Stack' – Robert Cartaino May 16 '16 at 0:47
That's what I thought. – OldBunny2800 May 16 '16 at 0:48
