Improved language support

In the past, we’ve been limited to offering support in English because we didn’t have enough moderators who spoke enough different languages that we felt capable of preventing abuse reliably in any language other than English. However, using the power of the Azure Cognitive Services Translator, we’ve now added automatic language translation for these supported languages to the GitHub Support Community!

To use these translation services, set your preferred language under Preference > Interface and a globe icon will show up under any posts that are detected as not being in your preferred language. Click the globe icon and that post will automatically be translated into your preferred language.

We encourage you to give it a try and let us know what you think!
