As we know that the physics Stack Exchange site is an international website, there must be a language translation technique for non-English speakers as they face problems to express them freely.

    $\begingroup$ What sort of "translation technique" beyond what you can already do on your own - namely using Google Translate or similar services to translate something into English, then post the result here - are you imagining here? $\endgroup$ – ACuriousMind Oct 12 at 8:10

    $\begingroup$ Because this is an English language site, it should be the responsibility of the users to be able to communicate understandably in English. I don't see why that would be up to the website. $\endgroup$ – JMac Oct 12 at 13:50
  • $\begingroup$ Machine translation usually produces partly or totally incomprehensible results. Knowledge of the original language is usually required to understand/fix the translation. $\endgroup$ – Peter Mortensen Oct 23 at 23:28

There simply are no such language translation tools $-$ technical language is too complicated, and machine translation is (intrinsically?) not good enough to handle it.

If you have any specific tool in mind that you'd like to propose, then you're obviously welcome to propose it. However, it is your job to go and research what tools there are out there, and to put forward a compelling case for why any individual tool you find should be added to the site.
