Quite often recently I've gotten a daily or hourly game question in a foreign language, that I'm supposed to translate into 4 optional answers in that very same language. I don't think this qualifies as trivia. Translation doesn't even fall within the definition of trivia. Many of my teammates feel the same way about this issue. I would say that translation questions don't teach anything unless you happen to be studying that language. Even English questions that ask to to give the meaning or definition of something aren't really trivia. Maybe there should be a special Languages catogory for those.
I'm not sure why your team felt the need to post this twice in the forums, but I think the replies in the other thread
pretty much spells it out. These questions ARE interesting to some players, and just because you (or your team) don't particularly like them doesn't make the trivia any more, ahem, trivial.

Do the math questions really teach you anything unless you're studying math? Are the physics questions really necessary if you don't plan on pursuing a career in physics? A lot of people enjoy playing questions in unfamiliar territory because they like having the opportunity to learn a little something that they didn't know before. As long as the explanation in the interesting information sounds it out, there's no reason to exclude questions on foreign language.
