Prompt how better to organize the forum in which to communicate in several languages.

For example,
  • English forum
    • — Board number one
    • — Board number two
    • — ...

  • Russian forum
    • — Section number one
    • — Section number two
    • — ...

  • Deutsch Forum
    • — Abschnitt Nummer eins
    • — Abschnitt Nummer zwei
    • — ...



or this:
  • Board number one
    • — English
    • — Russian
    • — Deutsch

  • Board number two
    • — English
    • — Russian
    • — Deutsch

  • Board number three
    • — English
    • — Russian
    • — Deutsch

or something else?

The audience is primarily English speaking, but if the thematic forum you come across a topic in Russian or German (i.e. all mixed up), it turns ugly (IMHO). The language of the forum posts it is clear that switching is possible under. To have separate domains (consider to split the forums) is also IMHO not very much — maybe someone who reads several languages, and forums for less popular languages will be empty.On Ineta uniformity is not observed.

I think the first option is more logical:
— firstly, the user will see your branch (reduce the likelihood of a Russian topic in English).
second, this option involves the creation of its linguistic community.

Of the two proposed, IMHO, looks better first. Especially considering that the user can simply roll up the foreign sections (IPB v.3) and not be distracted by them. This option is ideal when on the forum about the same ratio of users by language. In case (take your example) English-speaking, more than Russian-speaking and others, to change the way you have now made I think it is not worth it.
