If people are blocked by a language barrier, I doubt we could do
anything effective to help them, so we may as well not worry about it

However, if there are people who could report it if only they knew
how, that is something we could help with.  We could write a short
invitation to report bugs, which gives briefly the info and points
at the Emacs Manual's explanation, and we could send that to every
forum where it would reach some interested people.  It could say
which methods of communication we don't use, and why.

As for Spanish speakers, there are probably some Emacs developers that
could read bug reports in Spanish.  Should we write, in Spanish, a
brief guide for sending bug reports to us in Spanish?
