Good point.

I support a Spanish site, along with the Indian, and Australian ones.

Try and get some Spanish users to support your cause.

We have an Aussie thread going in this section, and Uppendra has an Indian thread as well.

Good luck.

It costs money to make a new site. So, they have to believe the investment will pay off.

It is essentially a decent server sitting up on a rack locally, linked to a bucketload of existing content.

What is different, is that the features and news are translated into the appropriate language, in the case of Indian (Hindu?), or Spansh.

That means hiring a new staffy !!

Translating US English into Australian shouldn't be too hard ... lol. Ours soulton is cheap !!

Just a few points of grammar ... color to colour etc.

C'mon uncle Tom !!

That could be a real problem in India. Hundreds of languages, not one, and only 43% speak Hindi. But about 300,000 define English as their native language. That should be enough for BOM to open a site there. It pains me to see so many Indians struggling to make themselves understood here.

43% is still a massive amount of prospective customers.

The climate is similar to here (in parts) ... you need a decent aftermarket cooler for your overclocked cpu to survive Summer.

JP ... are you with us ???

My mate Kirk is just getting into Mumbai on a 3 week holiday too ...

Back to visit folks at home.

Possibly some cricket too.
