    Hi, I would like to have translated versions of GUI codes into English when using [ trigger] [ /trigger]
    Perhaps something like this: [ trigger] [language=x] [ /trigger]. It is so painful trying to figure out what "if or then else" means in their native language.

    While a good suggestion, I do not think it should take priority.

    1. There are more important things that require development time (in my opinion)
    2. How many will actually use this language tag? people do not read up on the bb-tags most of the time
    3. You are willingly shooting yourself in the foot if you have a non-english editor. You cannot write a german post and expect a japanese person to understand. It's the same with posting a foreign trigger on a english speaking site. Where it is against the rules to post in non-english by the way.

    I am not talking about myself. It's just when a user asks for help in help zone, I find myself having hard time helping the person just because I can't understand a thing.

    That's their fault, not yours.

    I also find such translation would be useful! Tasyen made an extra tool for supporting in such situation, Trigger Translator.

    Hey come on, it's not really that hard, you can guess most of the part, thus, it gets annoying yes I agree...reading half a weird language and half english.

    Sounds cool but I am busy rewriting the entire site for XenForo 2 already. Will take a long while before I get to this :S.
