That's what I mean, by "not very good practice", I mean it is *very* rude
for all of us to assume that people follow rules/guidelines in a language
that they do not necessarily speak. The guidelines make it seem like they
apply to all Wikimedia channels in all languages, thus they should be
written in as many langauges as possible. And if I were asking solely for a
translation, I would have just put the template on the page. I want to know
what how people feel about translating the guidelins, so I posted here.
