Speak to me in a language I can understand

By Margaret Ziviski on January 22, 2013

“It’s an English world after all.” In his blog, commentator Gwynne Dyer refers to John Adams, second president of the United States, who declared that “English will be the most respectable language in the world and the most universally spoken.” As evidence that the prediction has come true, Dyer describes the Politecnico di Milano, whose new policy is to teach only in English. English has become the language that the world uses to converse.

Well and good. But what about when we are talking to ourselves? Sometimes when we’re learning something new or trying to figure something out, we just want the situation to be as comfortable as possible. And what could be more comfortable than our first language, whatever that may be? For that reason, in future releases, Winshuttle will offer more of our documentation in additional languages. The Winshuttle core products already offer localized user interfaces in French, German, and Spanish, and advanced and getting started guides in those languages—because the Winshuttle world is not just an English world.
