Description

Hello,

As discussed in the Support Team meeting a few days ago, we suggest to add a link so that people can get to Support Forums in their own language. Currently, there is a Yellow box that makes guesses based on geo-location if the browser header doesn't send a specific language other than English.

People living in countries that have many national languages, or if people are travelling, or if they simply installed an English OS, the usefulness of that yellow box is heavily diminished.

There is no easy way to find such other forums.

For now, there is such a link and we would love for it to be placed in an obvious place - https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/contributing-to-the-wordpress-forums/support-forums-in-your-language/

We propose to place that link under the 'Getting Started Resources' list.

Thanks!

A transcript of that meeting is available here (you will need a Slack account)
