    whenever I have suggested a Spanish language DK the answer I always get here is that hispanics know English so it isn't necessary.


    •  Obviously, (7+ / 0-)

      the answer is to create Spanish language DK and do it in English.

      The GOP jobs plan is to manufacture outrage.

        would be a great "corner" of DKos to have set up. Having segments translated into spanish would be good for those that don't have english down.

      Suggesting things is free. Making them happen is not.

        and understandable.  

        But considering the growth of other Spanish language media, for people to suggest it shouldn't be considered because Hispanic people know English is less reasonable.  The vast majority of Hispanics are fluent in English, but many may have a preference for Spanish, as is the jist of this diary.

        Here's how:
        1 Create a subdomain on The DK
        2 Install WordPress on the subdomain.
        3 Use a Translation Plug-In to automatically translate the diaries selected for the multilingual section of the site. (There are many WordPress Plug-Ins available some are even free, as WordPress is the most widely used CMS Platform on the World)
        4 Apologize for for not being perfect and ask for help from the community in making it better... Build it and they will come! Our community has much to offer as do they...
        5 Wordpress has a Multi-User function where the multilingual site users can have their own blog or diary much like here...

        I'm not the guy for the job I've got some WordPress MU sites, but this scale is out of my league, and I speak Spanish as well as a Teabagger would...

        I'm just saying it bears a look if you haven't done it already, rather than a dismissal as too costly without looking...
