Different languages in same profile?

+9 votes
Hello everybody.

just my second day here :)

I adopted an orphan profile from a notable of my country, Argentina. Then I realized previous original work about the notable has been written in French. Even when my language is Spanish, I've been using here English, so I think I'll add information in English. But it will look quite strange. Should I translate the previous French text into English? Thank you very much

In addition, you could certainly also include a Spanish biografía.
good idea, done, and I'll be working it in English too :)
Thank you for your question and your willingness to translate the profile, L.

We have bilingual profiles. You could translate the french bio and add it in a section in english.

A small group have just completed the text on Erik Ångermans profile in 3 different languages, English, Swedish and Finnish. Still some merging and a free-space-page for additional info to do but you could check out how the profile looks...
