- english
- language of the main user country / manufacturer - for the "authentic touch"
- french / russian / spanish / german (seens to be spoken by the majority of the community)
- all other
Nice post.. Sensible approach!

Russian of course. Maybe for some free c-101 keys someone can translate it to native dcs language. You must remember - huge part of russian pilots buy non-russian planes only if it have fully translated docs.

What Flagrum said has alot of sense to me, english first, so that is the mother language of this forum and is the better way to achieve a more widely support of your product.
Then, well, I imagine that is a matter of time/founding the way that the other lenguages are pushed to us.
Maybe now days and in a biz like this one, a good and well shaped manual in english will be enough, like in RL.

Wait gentlemans -


Why create a poll about spanish language in a English forum ? the primary users of an eventual spanish manual will be people that don't speak english. Do you think they is a lot of them in this forum ?

Your premise is false. There are a lot of Spanish speakers who speaks English too.

And you forgot Google Translator. I read Russian forums (tons of useful information of Russian aicrafts) too and I don't speak Russian, but with Google traslator, I 'm able to understand what they are writing.

I think,it's reasonable ask if we want a Spanish manual when the aircraft is Spanish and many of team members are Spaniards (low development cost, maybe it's profitable). LN relesed a Serbian manual for the Fishbed, for example.

Another interesting question is...The size* of the Russian market is enough to justify a Russian manual?

*Potential buyers.

Stats shows 22%. If that's the same calculation than in France, that is surely a way less that are able to communicate more than the basic school "hello, i am wolf".

(France showing 50% while from my experience is nowhere close to 20)

So yeah, i maintain that this thread should have been posted in spanish in the spanish section, and on relevant spanish sections.

Also, from my experience in community stuff - I don't believe more than a couple of % of DCS customer are actually on that forum anyway.
