How much of your content is in English?
GPWA Executive Director Michael Corfman has been in Spain for more than a week attending industry conferences, some of which had speakers in both English and Spanish. After being immersed in that environment, Michael began wondering about the focus of GPWA members on providing content in languages other than English. Certainly there are members that only provide content in English, but there are also members whose focus is primarily or exclusively on providing content in other languages as well. So, for this week's poll please share your language focus in terms of English versus other languages. View poll
