    That's a tough one, you can try at the ubuntuforums.org there's sub forums for specific languages. Commented Aug 6, 2011 at 0:31

    I just want to point out how important this question is to Ubuntu's core philosophy. Not only the very idea of openness, but particularly the Ubuntu ideal that computing is for all of us, and not only those of us who speak English.

See http://www.ubuntu.com/support/community/locallanguage for Non-English support ressources.

For Italian there's a web forum at http://forum.ubuntu-it.org/, for Brasilian Portuguese at http://ubuntuforum-br.org/


On the Area 51 site, you can propose new Stack Exchange sites, including sites in languages other than English.

A few examples of existing proposals:

Note that a site would not have to be specifically about Ubuntu — you can ask Ubuntu questions on a site about unix in general or even about all computer hardware and software. My recommendation on the right size of a site is unix in general.

If you decide to create an Area 51 proposal, tell all your Portuguese or Italian-speaking friends! The site will be created if and when it has a critical mass of committed users.


See http://asklinux.ru/ubuntu for Russian languages users


You could try Google Translate.
