Are posts in other languages translated to english?

I am just curious whether the posts in other languages are integrated (translated) into the english only section or is that possibly relevant information never to be read by english only readers, like me.

If they don't know how to use https://translate.google.com/?hl=en&tab=wT that's probably true. :wink:

Cool. I have not used google for quite some time, so I forgot about that feature.

If only DDG did that.

Thanks, Ed_P

also, check out polyglot ... its in the menu under Network..
this is a gtkdialog script written by brokenman(gui for https://github.com/soimort/translate-shell)
which (i think) is using translate.google.com
some others are mentioned:
https://www.bing.com/translator
https://translate.yandex.com/
https://www.apertium.org/
also i believe chrome includes a google translate feature and there is also an addon for firefox, "Translate This!" which also uses google translate
