What is the best way to ensure that those surfing from Europe can view our pages in english as intended? I know most of the Nordic countries have alternative keyboards and character sets. I hear about problems with our sites from time to time. What can I do to deal with it?

Brett .. we are trying to infiltrate non-English markets and eventually just had some of our websites translated..

It seems to be the most efficient method.

All mainland European countries have keyboards that differ from the English, but a-z and 0-9 is in the same place as far as I know. The only problems might be if they want to use special text when posting, i.e. bold, italic etc, as shown in the Help function. The square bracket keys [ ] might be occupied by a local letter, but might also have been re-mapped as an AltGr+digit alternative. Normally, there would be little need to use any special characters.

I am not sure that we would have any major technical problem, except languages. Take a look at this

an let us know what you think. The freebie is out of the question for a site with as much technical lingo as this one, and no price has been posted for the customized version. Why not ask them and tell me? Maybe something can be worked out.
