Parce que les americains sonts gros, cossards, et egoistes.
I really don't understand a sinle word of this Maddie, but you sound soooo sexxy
cossard is french slang from a region called Vendée so it is probable not all french would understand it
Ha. If you knew what I was saying, you wouldn't think so. But everything sounds so much nicer in French...
As the Merovingian said in the Matrix: "French is the best language to swear in. [stream of french curses] It's like wiping your *ss with silk."
I suspect that this is a matter of economics. English is the most widely spoken language in the world given that it is the common language of global business as well as of science and technology. Because of this the best way to reach the largest global audience is by publishing in English. Also, the Google search engine has a translate option that will translate a page into other languages (including from other languages to English). There are also other sites that will translate web pages for a reader for free - granted, the translations are not perfect but, in my experience, are more than adequate.
I checked the HubPages Terms of Service and could find no requirement that Hubs be written in English. From the examples above (which I recognize as French but don't understand - the last time I tried my college French in France the hotel clerk thought I was speaking Dutch and suggested we try English) it is obvious that HubPages will accept French.
My suggestion would be to write some of your Hubs in French or other language of choice. The only problem I would see with this would be that the algorithm that calculates the hub score might have a problem, but you should be able to get around this by adding an additional text module with an English translation. Best of all you would reach an even larger audience by including French speaking (or other language) as well as English speaking readers.

Lately, a lot of hubs have been published on HubPages that are written in Spanish. Since we only allow English hubs on HubPages, Maddie has to find them and moderate them, which is a lot of work for her. We decided to...

Since I got bored on Facebook, and cannot sleep (it's 4:44AM here), I decided to create this forum to discuss how many hubbers can speak many languages. I am actually born in the Philippines, and particularly living in...

It's all about behavior, still I found that some Huber dislike Indonesian poor grammar . It's not fair, my friends.

Since we have a lot of non-english and ESL members and readers, I think it will be a good idea to have a 'translate this page' widget or something similar. For example I get considerable traffic from google.com.ph,...

I notice I get some traffic from other countries, I'm always a little curious how many of those visitors can read English. So, I started thinking about the possibility of Hubs having a translator; something like what...
