Good find matthiask!
I appreciate being given the choice. Might be even better if it could be done as a toggle option (would that be hard)--? I like that nciku dictionary lets you toggle from the menu in the top bar, what I HATE about their page is that that top bar and front page apparently can't be changed; it shows up automatically in the language of the area you're located in. So on mine it's Japanese and I can't get it to show in English. Which is really dumb in my opinion, esp where it says 漢字を学ぼう--duh. (Yes I have given them this feedback, ages ago. No reply.)
* I think this Chinese translation is a mistake though--pls look at the bottom of the original post, where in English it would say "Posted by matthiask 2 hours ago in the Group General Discussion". This Posted by has been translated as 最新回复 which it's obviously not. *

Yes this is a new feature. You can also change your language preference at the footer of each page. Simply click on the flag and select one of the two available options.
Ah--the flag at the bottom of the page! Cool. Thanks Catherine.
Another Chinese translation that I think might be better changed: the word for Conversations. 对话 registers to me as dialogue, which these Conversations are not. 会话 doesn't really seem appropriate either. Conversations has kind of a special meaning as you use it here, so maybe leave it even, in the English? If I were the decision-maker for the site design that's what I would do, for now at least. That's just me though.
