Is English not your native language?

There's the latin root that indeed make it so that you should find some ressemblances between french and portuguese.
French has some tricky grammar rules though, that makes it quite tedious/hard, even for french people to write a correct french.

Nevertheless you can learn it and get understood anyway so in the end I guess it's the more important.

My native language is Basque, Euskara in basque. But here I speak basque with some people and spanish with others. I life 5 minutes walking from the border with france so hear much french too, but I can not speak it. I usually try to post by myself and sometimes use Google translator, to help me and learn more. So english is my third language.
more info here :)

@Aritz: we don't live very far from each other. I live about 300 kms from the basque region.
I went to San Sebastian to see iron maiden and rammstein play live concerts.

Hi, I'm Spanish. I can understand english, but my english fluency when writing/speaking is poor.
I use to use Spanish when writing games, because I'm a teacher and I know that most teenagers here in Spain have a low level of english (even when they get more english classes than I got at their age).

But I know everyone likes games in english, because it is the current international standard language. I would be disappointed if I found a nice game in russian or japonese, and I understand a japanese or russian would be also disappointed to find a game in Spanish.

Having a localization/translation engine compatible with Construct 2 would be great! Until then, I'll have to make two versions of everything.

Native language : French.

No problem to write or understand english (as far as I know ^^).
Except perhaps with Kyatric about the use of rgb() colors ;) We should have written in French ^^

I use a Chrome plug-in from the Word Reference website to translate words I need, directly in the browser address via the shortcut "enfr" or "fren", very useful and rapid ! http://www.wordreference.com/tools/Chro ... rtcut.aspx

Finn, So my native is Finnish, but I have been messing with computers and electronics since old 8-bit (AppleII and C64) era, so I have done quite a lot reading. I'm sure my English ain't according the official specs, but I do hope it's clear enough.

Techically I also know some Swedish, but that's so long gone/forgotten I would not expect much.

Also Finnish. Not so good at writing english, have to do a lot of spell checks. I always had issues with "invisible letters" in writing, which you don't have in finnish. Most of my english skills comes from games and we rarely have any translations so no wonder that in my early days of gaming the point and click games seemed to have no logic at all :)
