Best content
Translate more content from english to other languages because the content in others languages like spanish is so short and in some cases is not even helpful and for the people that does not speak english thats a big problem for using the platform, in my case there some times where i need to shearch the think that im looking for in english because the page in spanish does not exist or the information is just not relevant for some investigation, in my opinion thats the biggest issue for the entry of the people to the platform.
