Many Sun Blog posters are bilingual writers. Why don't you encourage them to translate their blog entries themselves?

I'd also recommend translating Geertjan Wielenga's blog, http://blogs.sun.com/geertjan, and not only because he's on my team :). He has one of the most popular blogs and the content is highly technical, code snippets a-go-go, covering mostly NetBeans platform but really just about anything NB-related that he thinks is cool.

I'd love to see people posting directly in multiple languages when they can do it themselves, though I know from my own experience that unless you're truly, perfectly bilingual, it usually takes longer to write in your second language, no matter how well you speak it.

I personally don't have unlimited time or funds to manage blogs outside the group I work for, but would encourage anyone who wants their blog translated, or knows someone else's blog that should be, to get in touch with the globalization group and see what they can do for you.
