Help in Your Language

The helpers in news.newusers.questions know a lot of answers, but they don't always speak the same languages as the people they're trying to help! In many cases, the best help for technical problems will come from a newsgroup which speaks your own language.

These newsgroups are good starting points for new users who are not very familiar with English:

( news:chinese.newsgroups.newusers) chinese.newsgroups.newusers
Postings by new users (Chinese)

(news:ch.general) ch.general
Miscellaneous items of interest to Swiss readers

(news:chile.consultas) chile.consultas
Consultas varias nacionales

( news:de.newusers.questions) de.newusers.questions
Neue Benutzer fragen, Experten antworten (German)

Miscelanea (Spanish)

( news:fr.bienvenue.questions) fr.bienvenue.questions
Les premieres questions sur Usenet (Ou, Comment) (French)
