So, what's your plan with this subforum? Who is it supposed to be catering to? Women living in Germany who feel more comfortable communicating in English? The international bra fitting community, i.e. for general discussions rather than actual fittings?

Maybe you feel like compiling the final rules/netiquette-version from the translations that have already been done?


How and where? I could compile everything in a word doc and then send it to you -- I don't quite understand where it's supposed to go in the end. What's the intended structure for this sub forum?

As far as I recall it was intended for users around the world speaking English but not German who wish for a fitting but cannot get one elsewhere or to have a second fitting according to our standards contrary to some other fitting (i.e. British fitting vs. ours because we don't fit as tightly)

Hi!
I just wanted to point out that there are currently major obstacles for non-german speaking users wanting to register for this site.
The registration process is completely in german, and simply not doable for non-german speakers.
I remember some people on reddit a while ago. They were very interested in our fitting methods, and I told them about the English sub-forum. Unfortunately, they refrained due to the complicated registration process, because they couldn't figure it out. :(

Edit: I just checked the registration form and it seems to support both English and German by now. However, many of the form descriptions are still in German.
Maybe that's a good point to start working on.

By the way, the registration confirmation made me giggle: "Write the name of this page (as in the logo in the upper left corner) without vocals". This description must seem quite confusing to non-german speakers, since vocals means 'Gesang'. The correct translation of 'Vokale' is 'vowels'. ;)

Ok, if it's for women looking for a fitting, the structure should be similar to the main forum, right? Perhaps not as extensive (at least for the beginning).

How about a to-do list?

1. adapt registration: finish translation of registration form; create automatic welcome mail in English. btw, I tested the English registration as Linali did, and it took me a while to find where to switch to English.

2. Compile rules and netiquette

3. … what else needs to be done?

We might need a separate to-do-list thread. :)

At the moment I'm rather uncertain about whether it would be at all possible to have the same advice and fitting structure in English that we have in German. Originally we thought about it but the counselling threads are already getting out of hand as it is. So I'd rather focus on the rules and start some discussions to get the whole thing going. When we see that people actually use the platform we could restart the translation-project.
What do you think?

And yes, I've never even had a look at the registration process... *angst*

That totally makes sense. However, shouldn't there at least several headline threads such as 'bra fittings', 'xyz discussion thread' (bra shapes, fitting methods…) etc.?

When can just pop in:

I think the main poit is about: how will english-speakers use the forum isn't it? So the first thing is as hedology has already pointed out to translate, rules and netiquette as well as some more major information about the forum in general (general idea, how it is used at the moment).
The second step would be how I suggest to translate some major information in the brawiki and in the discussion about bra shapes.
Did I understand this right ?

Most part of rules and netiquette are already translated (somewhere... I know I saw them!)
If you could get on information-articles on the wiki, that'd be awesome! That information is most likely what most women need in the beginning *ja*
