Duolingo forums shutting down March 22

I just learned about this, and I know many MetaFilter members use Duolingo, so I thought it might be helpful to share this here. [more inside]

Duolingo Japanese Club

Duolingo now offers Japanese! (For iOS and Android phones, only. No web-based presence yet.) Since some Mefites previously expressed interest in Japanese, I wanted to invite folks to join the Metafilter Japanese Club I created on Duolingo. [more inside]

Foreign language links

There's a wonderful celebrity meltdown happening in Paris right now. I could put together an interesting post with basic summaries in English, but the best links would be in French. Does MetaFilter have a policy on non-English links? My thoughts are to provide them, and offer an English translation of one or two key paragraphs. (I would think this would have come up before, but didn't find one in the FAQs or through searching, but I might have missed this).

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?
