Indonesian Support Category

Background
For Your Information, There are many Indonesian players in Infinite Flight and many of them have an account in Infinite Flight Community. I often see Indonesians in here hard to understand English or type in English. Which means some of them would use Bahasa Indonesia in making Support. This has happened several times in the past and made some confusion. The only thing they can do now is by relying on Google Translate. But Google Translate isnt completely realible and may also make some confusion as sometimes not all Indonesian words can be translated to English. And lately, I see a huge number of Indonesians coming to this forum so this would be needed in order to help Indonesians who have a problem with Infinite Flight. It would be nice to see another foreign language support category im this community

It would be nice if moderators and developers considering this idea. I would gladly help to guide Indonesians here in this category if this idea would be implemented in the future.

Please do share some thoughts about this idea. Thanks 😊. Any feedbacks regarding this idea would be welcomed

Great idea, although wouldn’t that mean we’ll have to create more support categories just for those non-english speakers? Maybe have a category just dedicated to them (and a few more sub-categories for all languages) instead of having one just for Indonesians.

Very good idea though, this would ensure no-one is left behind here!

Yeah I saw some problems with the Indonesian person and like I’m Thai I understand that it’s difficult to understand English in south-east asia

Yup, that’s what I meant. Indonesian Support would be like the current Spanish and French Support which are sub-categories 😊. Sorry that my topic did make you get confused ;)


@Tatenoryu6142 I think many Southeast Asians are hard to understand English (Not to mention Singapore and Philippines). So categories like this would be really handful for users from countries where English isnt the first and language and not teached nationwide. Both Indonesia and Thailand have the same problem here.

Chinese imho is also needed as one of the main languages in the world. Although there are not many Chinese who have language barriers here unlike Indonesians in Infinite Flight Community. Even though, I think the developers or mods should consider adding Chinese Support in the future alongside Indonesian Support 😊.


Indonesian Support can also be used by Malaysians who have Language Barriers too. So it has multifunction imho

It would be interesting that every user, when he/she registers to the community, got to pick or select which languages they speak, and that will change wether they can post or create a topic on the categories of the language.
Did I make myself clear?

That is good idea, you want to help Indonesian people who can’t understand English. I appreciate it. I am Indonesian , I wanna ask a question. Do I have to use this forum or your forum? Even tough I understand English?. Thank you

It’s a good idea but I don’t think there’s necessarily enough people to support this catergory. There are many features on the web which allow website to be viewed in your native language. Also if you are able to understand there question then you could send them a PM in Indonesian and deal there.

Just my thoughts

Why don’t we have a big subgroup?

Ex. South East Asia

I think it would be hard to implement that idea. In Southeast Asia itself, There are more than 13 Main Languages among Southeast Asian countries (Excluding Secondary Languages and English). With Bahasa Indonesia, Tagalog, Bahasa Malaysia, and Thai as main languages spoken in the region.

I don’t know a lot of indonesian here
