According to this article on heise it is (or was) planned to create a German version of this site, too.
I found that via the Wikipedia page on Libre Office.

What's the status on this?

@horst: Thanks for the feedback. Feels kind of messy to mix languages ..

@erwin you are right, but that's what it is right now.

Setting up askbot sites for various languages is still on the list - currently there is a first test in preparation with the pt-BR project/language. If that goes well, other languages can follow soon. (but of course the points regarding fragmentation that have been mentioned already do apply - but if the majority of the userbase for a given language doesn't speak English, there is no point in keeping it within the english one. OTOH if you only have a handful of active users in your language, askbot might not be the right tool anyway :-)).

But now people are busy with the conference, and probably will have to spend some time dealing with a backlog after returning,....

I can live with posting German-language questions here. Actually, I can live with the English site. But I keep getting support requests from friends who would be served better with a native language site. From what I gather the German-language community is strong enough.

having a forum for each language separate is an advantage and disadvantage the same time. advantage: - everybody in a single language forum understands all - if someone speaks more than one language he/she has the possibility to place the same question in the related language in another forum as well disadvantage: - people going across various languages will find the same question again

PS I actually only wanted to write a comment but don't find the comment tool. Could you possibly give me a hint?

@ROSt52 "Could you possibly give me a hint?" — That requires 3 "karma points" → FAQ · How does karma system work? — Done... ;)

@manj_k thanks for hint with the karma point and the related link It seems someone gave me 3 karma points as I can now place a comment. I might need to thank you for that.

And I don't have the karma to upvote your answer, yet. Kind of a pity, this isn't part of the stackexchange network. But mostly I am just happy if it works. :)
