Some of you may have seen the flags on the front page at the top.

We have -

Danish
Dutch
Finnish
French
German
Greek
Italian
Norwegian

If there are any problem, please let me know.

Thanks,

Don't I know......Clicked on Spanish flag by mistake, not realising what I had done, thought my J20 had mysteriously been replaced by Doggy (dodgy lol) homebrew!!!!!!  Great idea though.

Looks like the Greeks are a little confused - when I run the cursor over their flag, I get a line of question marks.

Sue.   -   That J20 must be pretty powerful; the British and Spanish flags are at either end of the line.

Brilliant idea Boss - if someone posts in a different language will it translate back into English too?
"You know; the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering."

tonyc

More importantly - when we post, will it translate it into English?
 

Boss Man

No it won't translate back unfortunately! If we start getting posts in foreign languages, I will have to double post an English translation.

Tony - This is due to Greek being a non - Roman alphabet, so it will not show properly in your browser. If you viewed in a Greek browser, it would show "Greek" in Greek. Same with the Russian.

It's just a little to help our brothers and sisters over the English Channel, help capture a missing audience. We get a lot of traffic from Europe, as shown below -

I knew TimeshareTalk had a European following but I thought that it was probably confined totally to France, Germany, Spain and Portugal with possibly a little Italian and Benelux influence.  Was amazed to see a Russian poster today.

What's that bit of white round the former-Yugoslavia   Serbia?

Statistics never fail to amaze me.  It is only when you see them like this that you realise how awry some impressions can be.

For instance, I am staggered that Finland and the Czech Republic are so high on the list.  And, even more so, that each of them is about another half as much again as France.  France is much lower in the list than I expected but, even so, 42,884 hits in 6 months still represents about 234 per day.

When looking at the figures it is easy to see just how much of a "selling point" an opening page in their native tongue can be.  Splendid idea! Where did you get it from?  I only ask because I recently went on the Easyjet site and their opening page offers something on similar lines but not as many countries.  i didn't follow it through but suspect that theirs is to enable customers to book flights throughout with the entire booking system being in their own language.
 

Boss Man

I did have it on the site in the beginning(done differently) but it caused problems, this time it was just brought along by traffic awareness and requests. And like many businesses at the moment, diversification.

Val

Those figures are incredible!  How do they compare in total with the rest of the "world"?

Val

I have just looked at the active user stats as well as on the "stats subject. Only two of us on MAC OS X and Safari.  Are we th loners in the pack or are there other mac users out there!!!
