we decided to ask our in-house team members, who also help us greatly with translation/localization
Who are they? Are they at the forum too?

Basically, Tech, they're people in all departments at AVAST...sales, sales/tech support, eCommerce, you name it. Management are total wizards in terms of finding the best talent (before Google or other such companies grab them). E.g., eCommerce dept. just hired a young (to me) girl who speaks about 8 languages. One of our tech support guys is similar (see interview with Martin Cohen: https://blog.avast.com/2011/03/16/5-questions-with-martin-cohen-tech-support-specialist/).

As a 3rd-gen American, I am typically in awe of anyone's multilingual prowess. My great-grandparents all combined probably spoke 8 or 9 tongues... and by my mom and dad's generation it was down to 1  :o (known as 'assimilation' to Americans... and similar to 'normalization' to the former Eastern Bloc).

I have purchased and used Avast for some years.  However, I'm noticing some troubling trends.
Example:  AutoSandbox.  What an annoying new "feature". 

I'm hoping that Avast is not going the way to the bloated, glitchy, useless, annoying Norton products.  I've checked around and I am not alone in this concern.

Ok. my personal Skype is one. The avast help one is almost off all the time. I really do not use two Skypes at a time (bigamy)).

Spanish speaking friends of mine tell me they can understand Portuguese and Italian due to all three are latin based.

So you should be able to talk to Italians also.

Maybe I missed something?  I only speak English.

I did take a year of Conversational Japanese when I lived on Okinawa.  I spent over two years on the Keystone of the Pacific.

Any fans of KSBK here on avast! forums?
