Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Regarding 1), read the pie-fight that was conducted over the issue (in chronological order; this was in January 2006):
The general conclusion (at least in my mind) was that
  • we don't really want language-separated sections as that leads to fragmentation,
  • we aren't quite prepared to go multilingual given the low number of speakers of each non-English language among active commenters/diarists,
  • but if someone wants to, they can just go ahead posting in another language, but it is good to include a short English summary up front,
  • those speaking the language of a non-English diary should be helpful in translating/summarising to non-speakers or weak speakers of that language.
