For English-speaking people, problems of this kind are not very clear. However, try, for example, to go to a German forum and understand something there without speaking German. Or on the Russian-language forum. To quickly translate from an unfamiliar language, Google Translate is used. And it is completely broken on this forum and many other forums using Discourse.
Discourse pages cannot be translated using Google Translate:
Built-in translator does not work in Google Chrome
- The official Google Translator plugin for Chromium browsers does not work (I checked in Brave/Chrome)
- Translation of the entire page does not work on translate.google.com website
Considering that Chrome / Chromium is the most popular browser, and Google Translate is the most popular machine translator, most of the audience that does not understand the language of the forum is cut off from the forum using Discourse.
