Handling non-English bugs

Registered by Mohamed Amine Ilidrissi on 2010-10-13

Currently, Launchpad only accept bug reports in English, making it impossible for non-English speakers to report bugs. We should remedy to this problem by handling non-English bugs.

You know what I think? We could have a section where non english speakers could report bugs and then have them select the language it's in and then wait for a translator to do it.

The main problem I think would be having so many translators, because there would certainly lots of bug reports.

 * Have loco's answers those questions and massage it into a "complete" bug report and convert it to a bug report
 * Then these bug reports can be triaged if necessary
