Dear Ohlbe,

» […] I'm not sure Helmut encourages the use of languages other than English on the forum).

[image]I neither encourage English nor discourage any other language. However, any language other than English greatly reduces the chance to get answers.
In short:

In the Middles Ages the lingua franca of science was Latin.
Nowadays the language of science is bad English.

Less than 7% of users of the forum are native English speakers. The rest of us do our best.

Waunst wüst, kaunst mit mia a auf weanarisch plauschen.
Αν θέλετε μπορείτε να συνομιλήσετε μαζί μου στα άθλια ελληνικά. :-D
