    > Most people write messages in both languages, now you gotta flip a toggle each time? That's insanity moparisthebest, looks like you're missing imagination for a UI, that's about it :) Your client can display the only available language and tell you at the same time which language it is. Also it could even propose to translate it to your language if necessary, which is harder for a client to propose automatically if the message isn't known to be in a different language

    > you can troll like that right now and chances are the mods will never see it, pretty great feature of XMPP right? And you'd get banned almost instantly. That's ok

    No one has ever accused me of good UI skills that's true, also I think it's the job of the recieving client to translate if they want, I wouldn't want to see a machine translation when the original was available

    You'd get to choose

    I thought the use of a language tag for xmpp would mainly be to signal to bots/server components/etc. which version of a UI to display

    What client let's you choose currently? Or even shows you more than one body exists?

    wgreenhouse: the opposite, bots/components send every language at once rnd client picks what to show

    I wonder if a bot can send "hello" in 1 stanza in all currently spoken languages, without running afoul of max stanza size

    And if so, how many more words can it fit
