Florian - I am no webmaster or anything, but I assume that it would take a great deal of extra work to put this site in different languages. Our Admins have jobs and lives away from this site and are not able to devote that much extra time into it. Then there is the issue of which languages that should be made available. Why only English and French?

Isn't there a resource like Google Translator where you can view any website in any language you prefer?

Ummm... why not call CNN, Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, Facebook, MySpace, Disney, every major newspaper, every book publishing company, every major website, and anything else in America that is written by... and primarily for... people who speak English and ask them all the same thing....? I don't get the question....

Well, as most Disney rides have their safety instructions in English and Spanish, you might wonder first why the site isn't in Spanish as a second language, not French...

Alright enough guys.

The site is currently only available in english. The only option that currently exists is to use a language translator like google translate or freetranslation.com.
