How can I set what language to limit Community posts that are visible to me? I'd rather not wade through posts written in German, Chinese, etc.
Generally speaking the main Forum in each of the Product Communities is in English, with a few exceptions. There are some communities with separate forums for different languages, and a few separate communities for specific languages such as ChinaFirst.
There isn't a setting to limit posts of a certain language as there is no language selection (attribute/metadata) for each forum post.
Can you provide more details and examples to help us understand the problem?

I frequently check the OpenRoads Designer Community (https://communities.bentley.com/products/road___site_design/) Lately there have been several German posts. I am looking for a way to filter these out as I don't speak German.
Hi Josh, when a user posts on the forum, there isn't a field to select the language so there is no way to be able to identify and filter out posts based on language. I will consult with the Civil Support team manager about the potential for a new separate German forum in the Civil community if there is enough demand.
Josh on closer inspection we are not seeing German posts in the OpenRoads | OpenSite Forum. We suspect you might be looking at the activity feed on the community's homepage. This shows any activity including forum as well as Wiki, anywhere in the Community. This community has a separate German Wiki for article in German, and you might be seeing new articles being created and edited by Bentley colleagues in the activity feed.
If you would like to review new forum discussions in English, please subscribe to the forum. Sign in, navigate to the forum, then on the right side of the forum discussion list you will see an option to "Turn forum notifications on". Clicking this will change it to "Turn forum notifications off" which means you will receive alerts for new posts. You can also simply review the list of discussions in that specific forum.
