Living in English speaking countries as I do, i have no issue with language when I read magazines, forums, blogs etc. I would like to know whether each country that does not speak English as a first language has its own printed version of a woodworking magazine. I am thinking of countries like Germany, Belgium, Latvia, Poland, Russia and so on. If you follow my blog here, and live in a non English speaking country, would you mind please taking a minute and dropping e a line or comment letting me know so that we in Britain and the USA, the two countries where I live and spend all of my time, can understad more about woodworking scenes around the world.
I think that woodworking magazines have a great deal to offer in terms of their educating influence, but does, for instance, Belgium, or better still…Belgium, do you have a Belgian woodworking magazine of your own? If so, which language is it in? France, do you have a magazine dedicated to woodworking. I ask this of every Country. If your country does not have a magazine of its own, where do you now get readable and understandable informative material from? Can you please let me know?
The reason for my Questioning is just how do we ensure that what we have goes to other countries in an understandable way and how can we glean from other non-English speaking friends and supporters that have things to offer us?
I will one day be opening a Spanish speaking school in the USA that will enable us to pass our courses to Spanish speaking people and nations around the world also. I begin training my first Spanish speaking co-workers in November in anticipation that our second US school will be equipped to teach with equal empowerment in both languages. This also means that my future work will be in Spanish also and that my books will be translated into Spanish.
