In my opinion, would be a great idea to create a "localized" section for games in Spanish, French, Russian or others languages because english may be "rought" for non english users.

That subject has been discussed before. General consensus was that having a number of non-English language forums on the board would be a nightmare to moderate properly (let alone find responsible candidates to moderate such forums), not to mention that on average there would be maybe four or five people actually posting in each.

If someone does not understand English, they can always use Babelfish or Google Translation.

Agree with 5th, and think of it this way: The best way to learn English is by using it. Read, look up in a dictionary, type, shout in the box... Keep practicing I keep learning and for me it does wonder (even if my grammer is still a bit so-and-so).

I think he was actually referring to games, not another forum. I personally don't care, as written english is not a problem for me, but I understand some users would be grateful if they could find translated versions of games.
Of course, there would be a problem with space and actually finding those games, so I don't think this will happend...

I think the idea is good but it is just not pratical moderation wise.

A observation:
I refer about games "loalized" in "SPANISH" (castellano), french, german , etc... not a individual forum for each of languages.

Hey! I was right then. But as I stated before, there is the problem to actually find those translated games. I myself usually have them in english (ripped oldies, that is) because they are easier to find, but if you have the spanish version of some games on this site, you could probably start by offering them.

I hope it's not that much off-topic here ...

Manuals in other languages are also welcome?

I do not have much to offer, but I can look for some manuals in Polish
