> You cannot anymore have all scientists trilingual in English, French, and German.

Hi all!

I have to say it's maybe true, but I'm studying German language and literature in Hungary, and we get the articles of not german-speaking scientists in their own language! So we have to read Chomsky in russian, de Saussure in french, we've got an article of van Dijk in Dutch, too! And there's only a few of them translated in hungarian and a little more in german. So sometimes we have to work together to encode french or russian articles. That certainly doens't mean we speak all those languages, but we must be able - even when it takes time - to read those articles! It can't be that impossible for someone who is interested in languages to read a page of french or german text. So come on!
