Just another suggestion for language selection lists

By | June 1, 2012

Recently I was asked to fill in an online questionnaire. As I began the form, an entire window was shown to me, and it had a single UI item on it, a language selection list. Of course, I had to click on the list, wondering what wonderful choices I might have for a user interface. Surprisingly, the list revealed a single entry: English.

If you sometimes read my blog, you’ll know that I’m particularly interested in language lists at the moment. However, if you are interested in providing a list, I do have one additional suggestion…if you don’t have any choices, you probably shouldn’t use a selection list. It’s just too much of a bummer when nothing else is available and just doesn’t make much sense. Maybe disable it until your UI does provide additional languages.

That’s it for today.
