    First of all, congraulations on the recent release of the Esperanto version of the Gruffalo! This got me thinking - there are plenty of other children's classics, adult fiction and graphic novels that seem to be fertile ground for further such translations. What is the legal/ general practical process for developing a translation of an already exisitng work? And how come there aren't more of these brilliant translations around?

    Bonan matenon As a linguist I’d like to know more about Esperanto. Currently I am writing a book on languages in the world. For my research, I ask ‘real’ speakers of a particular language about their attitudes and opinions. This is why I joined this forum. Unfortunately I don’t speak any Esperanto myself. These are the questions I’d like to discuss with you: 1. What is your first language? (i.e. ‘native’ language, mother tongue - if it is a language other than Esperanto) 2. What other languages do you speak? 3. When did you learn Esperanto? 4. Why did you learn Esperanto? (this can be any reason) 5. When do you use Esperanto? (e.g. in everyday situations, or on special occasions only?) 6. How fluent are you in Esperanto? (as fluent as in your first language?) 7. What role can Esperanto play in today’s world? (e.g. as an international language, or as a 'neutral' language) 8. What do you think of the claim that the only real international language is English, instead of Esperanto? I’m looking forward to your replies. Bondezirojn Frank Frank van Splunder PhD Linguapolis / University of Antwerp

    I should point out that there will be a section on the site explaining how to do X but I've got to get round to building it. I think most of you will probably instinctively know how to use the editor, post reactions, add emoticons, mention another user etc. But don't worry if you don't; just ask or hold on for me to build this section
