    The last months we have received various requests from especially new members of the RaceDepartment Community to allow multiple languages on our forums. We have started RD as an english speaking community years ago but have welcomed drivers and readers from all over the world and we plan to continue to do so with English as our main international language.
    However today we have decided to at least allow the native languages of the non-english speaking countries that visit our site the most and we have created a special Non-English Discussion Forum that you can find by clicking this link!

    The following languages are supported with special prefixes that can be selected to add before every post title to create overview. In the forum description you will find direct links to your language:

    How do I start a post in my own language?
    It's really simple to start a post in your own language. Follow the steps below and start your chit-chat in the non-english discussion forum

    1. Click the "Post New Thread" button
    2. Select the language of your choice via the "prefix" dropdown menu
    3. Post your message
    4. Click the "submit new thread button"
    So many languages in just one subforum, will that work?
    Yes it will! In the forum description we have inserted all the supported languages with a link (see list above). Clicking on your language of choice it will automatically filter all posts on your preferred language!

    Example: When you are from France you click the "French" language link to get a full french forum!

    Have fun and remember the forum rules are still being enforced!

    If your native language is missing and you would like to see it supported please contact our staff.
