In aldi’s post on vertical I went to oeco’s link to Quora and got a pop-up that invited me to read Quora in German.  German is probably my third best language for reading. i.e., I can make out a word here and there and maybe the odd phrase and maybe my second best speaking, I can get by if I’m drunk enough and the person I’m speaking with has at least as much English as I have German.  Did any one else have similar experiences with the Quora link?

I’m not sure what the question is. Do you mean did I see a pop-up offering to give me the site in German? Then no. But I have a browser extension that blocks pop-ups. If you’re asking something about the quality of the German translation on the site, then you should provide an example.

I was wondering if anyone else was getting a pop-up offering any other language.

I think I may have gotten one somewhere along the line: not when I first joined it and not recently, possibly when they introduced the feature. I don’t recall if it was German or some other language.  Much of what Quora does is mysterious and its daily operations seem to be run mostly by AI (Artificial Imbecility).

I did only get it on my first visit.  I haven’t seen it since.
