This discussion is obviously aimed at people who are able to speak more than one language. I am French ( therefore I am fluent in that language ), and I'm fluent enough in english.
I can write my articles in two different languages. 3 choices possibles:
- Write in french
- Write in english
- Write in french and english
Right now, I'm writing exclusively in english. I've learn to code with English resources, and it felt like a more natural way to write about what I was learning.
Like most, I write to achieve certain goals. Increase my online visibility and retain the informations I'm learning are the main ones. I've always felt like writing in English was the best language ( between the two I know ) to achieve these goals.
Choosing the english language depended also on the dev.to platform. This is where most of my views came from, and writing in french here would decrease the number of people who could read my articles. I'm personally thinking about writing/publishing in french on my personal blog and keeping english for international platforms like dev.to.
Writing every article in both english and french do seem like it would be quite time consuming, and I'm not sure I could keep this up for very long.
So, I'm curious about what you people choose when you decide to write an article.
Can't wait to read your experiences ❤️
