Thanks to the huge international community around The Document Foundation,
numerous volunteers (and non-) work to maintain a version of the LibreOffice
website in their own language. Especially, when these are kept up-to-date,
these versions should be promoted, maybe not as substitutes for the official
English website but as local complementary resources. It could also be that,
for a user, knowing that there are other people talking his own language in
the community might lead him to more motivation than seeing the community as
a group of English-speaking individuals. This consideration is especially
valid as work is being carried out to have more volunteers on board. 

Thus, to promote the different versions of the LibreOffice website better,
it is being proposed to add a small notification bar on top of the menu to
hint the user about the availability of a local version of the website. This
mailing post is being submitted to call for feedback about this addition to
the LibreOffice website before asking administrators to implement it on the
official website. 

If you want to see what is the output of the proposal, please visit On top of the green menu bar, there should be a
black banner with some text on it. The actual proposal is that the banner is
seen only by those who have set a primary language other than English (US)
in their browser. However, to allow testing, this has been overridden to
show up always. (Please note that those who have English (US) set as their
browser's primary language will see incomplete text - This is expected.)

As a call to action, the community is being asked to give its feedback about
the proposal. Feel free to comment about the output or report any bugs you
might encounter.

Thank you.
