We’ve gotten a lot of feedback over the past year that our online content is really valuable but that it is a big problem that it is not translated for countries where English is not a commonly spoken/learned language. Japan is, perhaps, one of the best examples. We are trying some experments in this area and one of them is translating my blog into Japanese. Among them is translating my blog to Japanese.
Here’s a link if you speak Japanese: http://blogs.msdn.com/tfsjpn/default.aspx
We haven’t quite figured out what we are going to do about comments yet – since I, unfortunately, do not speak Japanese. We are also looking at the possibility of doing a version in Chinese. We’ll assess how these and other experiments go and see what works best. Based on that we’ll expand into other offerings.
As always, feedback is welcome.
