Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think that you already know my idea about it.

For those loosely related to ET English , a link an a couple of links to the two leading history would be enough. The same would go for the news feed.

For those more closely related there should be a Front-page in the language with the ability to do diaries/contributions in the language. But the page should also shown the rec diaries and recent diaries in the Englsih language so you can access from the same site I agree with all the points about common nickname and number)

Once you have done this, it is easy to contribute to any english diary as always.

The only question is the time it will take for the front-pagers iun , say, spanish, to write the diary in two languages. This is hard. Once you have done is easy to X-post.... although then you would have two separate discussions (as Jerome diaries in kos in ET).

In any case, the serious problem here is the time it takes to translate a diary (and of course doing more diaries).. I think we will contribute less in the English site at the end of the day.. and even at some point we may stop translating altogether.

The only way to overcome this is that around 8-10 people take care of the FP in the new language and post short items in the language and do one long diary during the week....that will not reduce our contribution in ET english too much. Are we 8-10?

My take.

A pleasure
