    It’s nice to have the new Akismet & Privacy notice now. But …. I’m a German, with a german Blog with german Readers. Can I aspect, that all my Readers can read this in english? Why isn’t this also available in German ore any other european language?

    The blog I need help with is katalyma.wordpress.com.

    Akismet is a spam filter http://akismet.com/ so I don’t know why your visitors need to know about it.

    Because they send a comment, for example, which is then analyzed by Akismet? Akismet also checks personal data.

    Is this a GDPR issue?

    What exactly? That the readers of the blog receive information in their national language or at least in the language of the blog?

    Hi there,

    We do not have any plans to make the various privacy policies and notices available in other languages at this time, but this might change going forward.

    Can you give us a clue to where the actual text is?
    I’ve been looking through the Akismet-files.

    Having visitors of my site presented with an english message in te comment section is not really an option, there has to be some way to translate it.

    @kokkieh You couldn’t imagine that English is not enough for an international offer? Really?

    I realize now I should be looking for an answer in the wp.org forums, not the .com. Sotty about that.

    An answer would still be appreciated though.
