Just thinking to rewrite an old post and translate into Italian. Do you write in multiple languages? Is it worth it?

@varl42 I publish exclusively in English as very few of my readers are Italian, and most of them know English anyway.

@amoroso I know. It's funny because I'm Italian, but I always study things in English and it happens I don't know how to explain concepts in my native language. I feel it's good to translate when it's possible, it depends from the audience. It can be helpful for high school or first year college students if they didn't have the chance to learn another language. But there's a lot of work to do to properly write things down two or three times...

@varl42 Communicating with or teaching to a demographic with limited English knowledge is a good use case for translations.
