I am adding the q2a script to a multilanguage site, and want to have it working well for the searchengines as well.

I could set up different subdomains for each language with one q2a install each. But I as well would need one overview site (in each language), where the (three) different activity streams are shown. One under the other, eachwise with links to "see full language question list".

Each of the three activity streams would need to have proper language setting for SE, and the whole site would need as well the correct language settings.

You basically can reduce the problem to : How to show other language activity streams on a normal q2a install on the frontpage (either on a custom page or the normal activity page).

People need to know that there are questions and discussions in other languages as well.

Any ideas or any better solutions ?

Best regards

English questions / activities
- question

---> see full list / visit english language site

German questions / activities
- question

- question
....
---> see full list / visit german language site

Spanish questions / activities
- question

---> see full list / visit spanish language site

I think subdomains is the right approach for having different language sites.

As for showing a combined activity stream, I would suggest either using RSS from each site, and then combining the RSS feed, or else using direct queries to the database for each subsite. Either way you should do this with a custom page, whose output is implemented in your custom theme (by checking $this->request in the main() function).

OK, thanks for the fast answer.
I will set up the sites and installations and try to make it work, but it is very probable that I get back to this question soon.
