Soon every one will expect such functionality from forums, and those which will not provide it will go down.

Still at this moment it is new and fresh so you have to let your visitors know that they can write in their language on your forum. Good solution for that is build in vBulletin message system. So just change message for guests and add there some words about your new, great possibilities :)

We are all fighting with SPAM. And there is lot of ways to do this. One is to ask questions in registration form. BE AWARE - forgein people will answer those questions in theirs language, so they will not be able to register.

What you can do in this case?

First solution - do not use this particular type of SPAM prevention.

Other one - find clever questions, which can be answered in numbers (please note that in some countries even numbers can be different). Like for example:

Earth is which planet (give number)
January is which month of the year (give number)
2 + 2 = (give number)

vBET is using HTML comments to appropriately translate or not specific areas of your forum. Also to re-encode it in case if your forum is not running on UTF-8.

Because of that you cannot use any mod which removes comments. And if you feel that you must, then make sure that it is running after vBET make all the job. It means that such mod must have set execution order over 1001 on plugin which works for global_complete hook (same for archive_complete hook)
