Can the forum rules/guidelines be updated to make forum use easier/fairer for non English speakers?

@Jingleton - The forum rules and guidelines at currently say:

"Official Language
English is the official language of our forums because it is the common language between our moderators and users. Because we cannot moderate conversations in a foreign language, you may not hold a conversation in the forums in languages other than English."

Would it be possible to amend this to say that if somebody is not confident in English that, whilst the post should be in English, it is acceptable to underneath (in the same post) have the same text in the poster's native language? That way, if there is confusion as to the meaning of the English, readers can check the intended meaning by reading the native language, either using own language skills or using Google Translate (or similar).

    @JohnHardman thanks for the feedback and suggestion! It makes sense to add this type of disclaimer to our forum's guidelines given our global community. Will take this back to the team to implement.

    This still hasn't happened. Nor have adding more badges for greater numbers of Likes and Accepted Answers. Could you check what is happening please?
