无需为中文内容道歉。您写的是中国话题,有时中文内容可不期待的吗?我建议您用两种语言发帖。

I’m fine with Chinese language postings from time to time (I have access to Google Translate if needed!), maybe a quick English intro for the article could help?

It's important to get your viewpoint across to those who only read either one of the two languages (English or Chinese). I believe this is especially important in the Chinese-language web-space, where diversity in viewpoint can often be constrained. Instead of reducing your Chinese language postings, may I suggest that when you do post something in Chinese, you preface it with a few-sentence description in English, including the postings main content and message/purpose.

Great piece Wang in so many ways. Google translate does work for us non-Chinese speakers, but having lived in two multilingual countries - South Africa and New Zealand - its a truism that providing translations and techniques like bottom of frame captions on video for example, encourage intercultural communication and mutual understanding.

Xiangwei - appreciate this as it will mean more upfront work on your end.
