English? Deutsch?

Reactions:  
Before I started my blog I spent much time on deciding what language to use. I opted for English to better reach out to people who don't speak German. I know most people in the world don't and a lot of my geo-community friends neither. I received some remarks that made me think about this issue again though. It is a pity that we do not all speak the same language but keeping a bi-lingual blog is not worth the effort (yet).

I will keep experimenting. It might be interesting for non-German speakers to also get a glimps at what a German students does. Perhaps I will get some comments on this.

Meine deutschen Leser haben sich vielleicht gewundert, warum ich englisch schreibe. Es erschien mir schlichtweg einfacher um auch mit anderen Nationalitäten und deren geologischen Kreisen in Kontakt zu treten. Ein zweisprachiges Blog scheint mir überflüssig, auch wenn ich hin und wieder mein Englisch erst noch aufpolieren muss. Was meint ihr dazu?

Have you thought about adding BabelFish?

That's an excellent idea! If I have time this weekend I will try to implement it. Thanks!
