Your web server Apache is able to automatically determine the user's language and give a page on his preferred language.
I don't use my own Apache server for this... I use a simple WYSISYG web site design and hosting service. That makes it much easier and faster for me to create, and make ongoing updates to, any web site I create.... nearly instantly.
I've now created LANGUAGE links at the top of http://bitcoinme.com
which take you to a page asking for help in translating the site. Soon, I will have an alternate language site set up for each one of the languages... which YOU ( the user community ) can help perfect the translation of. I'll wait a little bit, to make sure that we don't make any MAJOR changes to the text for a while... Then, I'll create a new COPY of the original English site for every language. (Did I miss any key languages, by the way?) Then, the translation project ( from English --> Your language ) can begin.
I like the idea of a natively translated site for each language, because automated translation, though convenient, is far from perfect. We like perfect.
If we want Bitcoin to catch fire in popularity, then the common ordinary people of the world -- walking down the street in your city -- need to be able to read it and understand it... in their own native language, and in simple (non-technical) terminology.
MtGox sends out an email. If the recipient of the email has/creates a MtGox account and claims the funds, MtGox processes the transfer. Otherwise MtGox returns the funds to the originator's MtGox account. No bitcoin transaction is created, so the issue of expiring transactions doesn't apply here.
That sounds great to me. I like the way that works. I like that it's an instantaneous transaction... and I like that the transaction never happens, and the funds remain in the sender's account, if the recipient never claims them. That's how it SHOULD work. (Though bitcoinmail.com offers a nice service, I don't like how all moneys are automatically converted into DONATIONS to that site after 14 days. Un-cool, IMHO.)
Question One for you guys: Yes or No. Do you like the addition of the video to the top of the Home page at http://bitcoinme.com
Question Two: Who else wants to volunteer to work on translations of the site into your own native language?
Question Three: Who here is willing to be listed as a person "willing to sell Bitcoins for cash, in person" in your own city? (Of course, you can charge any commission fee you choose) ....and thus be listed on the http://bitcoinbuy.com
