I think if you want to comment on a German site in German it would not be seen as a problem.In fact it may well be helpful to German readers.Also I am sure WOT has a translation service even here on the forum.Thats my opinion at any rate.

The bottom of the page, right side, there is a language select menu available on all WOT pages: Forum, Blog, Scorecard, etc..
That is where you change your preferred language.

If you open a German post, or Scorecard, your language is reset to German, to set it back to English change the language identifier in the URL and reload the page.

Forum and Scorecard examples:

This URL has no language specified, so it will open in the language you have assigned to your profile (select menu, bottom of page):
http://www.mywot.com/scorecard/mywot.com

This URL opens in English:
[url=http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/mywot.com t=_self]http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/mywot.com[/url]

This URL opens the same Scorecard in German
[url=http://www.mywot.com/de/scorecard/mywot.com t=_self]http://www.mywot.com/de/scorecard/mywot.com[/url]

Or simply replace EN with DE and reload the page.

While in DE and you post in German, reset to English and you will see a translate link.

Hi,

well I'm German too and when I leave a comment on a site I let it depend on what the site is;

if it's a small site that only German users would ever visit, I only write it in German (e.g. a local food store). If it's a website that might be entered by non-German speaking people, I normally write it in both languages (especcially since the translating tool isn't too great). And of course if it's an English site, I write in English only.

Nachtrag:
Diesen Text habe ich nun auf Deutsch geschrieben.
(Englisch lesen klappt zum Glück noch halbwegs, mit dem Ausdrücken aber halt nicht mehr so gut.

Und jetzt bin ich gespannt wie das übersetzt wird.

Ok, now I know, I really should try to write english.
I'm not sure, if I understood my last German posting after translation to English.

It depends on your target audience. If you are writing a comment on a German website that's used mostly in Germany, then write in German.
