You don’t need to understand to love it!

Large parts of the world take it for granted to find all information in your mother-tongue or in English.

But, what if … you’re an expert IT Pro or Dev person and there is no information available in your own language…

Although lots of the job related stuff is documented, discussed in English, that’s not the only way people work with the information.

So I got into a quest for hidden gems on the TNWiki.

To be honest, I usually do not understand a #f about these docs, but I do like it very much that people do put effort in publishing these articles.

Anyone who can tell me what the [fa-IR] is about?
That’s Farsi-Irak, right?

Side note

I noticed that Bing Translator has no English available for these articles.

But if you take a closer look into the tag cloud (displaying the most favorite tags), you can disover quite some hidden gems

And it should make us proud!

There are very few platforms that offer this kind of diversity!

Keep up the good work, it’s very much appreciated.


Tell me: what is your top 3 of foreign language articles and why!

(Don’t care if you understand it or not…)

  1. Yes. It's Farsi/Persian. The image really speaks a lot! Thanks Peter!

  2. Nice!

    You can find a larger list of languages and "xx-xx" codes here:…/ with links to corresponding articles.

    Yottun8's recent post on non-English articles is also worth a look:…/friday-with-international-community-update-progress-in-each-language-jan-2013.aspx

  3. Oh, and about English missing from the list, this is because we had to set a source language for the site when configuring the translation widget and we set it to English. As a workaround, you can use the right-click menu on your browser to translate a non-English article or go to that will allow translation from other languages into English.

  4. Can I understand it and love it at the same time? =^)

  5. Portugeese Articles are very good to read. Even I don't understand it, I like it.. They do their artilces with love I guess..
