Does MeFi have a policy on non-English language posts?

Does MeFi have a policy on non-English language posts? I thought it was odd to see a post that only French-speaking members could really understand or participate in since no English translation of the poem was given.

OK to ask for an interviewee?

I'd love to find someone to interview for a class assignment (due Thursday), about problem solving in teaching English as a second/foreign language in a classroom. There seem to be a few experienced ESL teachers around here, and it would be awesome to be able to talk to one on the phone here in the US. Would it be appropriate to look for an interviewee via AskMe? [more inside]

Does anyone remember a clip from a Northern European comedy show that had a court room drama where all the dialog is in english but completely nonsense? [more inside]

pedantry and mefi

There's a time and place for everything, sure, but can we stop using MeFi threads to debate usage of the English language? I'm all for "flag and move on," but this seems to be happening a lot.

It's the best of the web - and it is not in English

Posting links to websites in languages other than English: previously discussed, but without clear guidelines. There's a great link I could post -- but even if the images are a key part of what makes that site's interesting, it's not in English. More inside.

How kosher is posting websites in languages other than English?

How kosher is posting websites in languages other than English? Aren't we missing out on a sizeable - and valuable - part of the Web? The available online translation machines I've tried so far (Babel Fish et al.) are dreadful and hinder more than they help, but I've recently found WorldLingo to be appreciably less bad. MetaFilter users seem, to me at least, to be very interested in - and open to - "foreign" languages. Should posters risk posting a machine translation along with a link to a website in a non-English language, for instance?
