Recently I chose Hashnode as medium alternative for my recent blogs, and started to write a bit of posts in Bengali. However I found the lack of localization and translation in this website.

Previously with Medium, I could defintiely write in my language and they would have right visitors from right country. With hashnode, I am bound to English. All of the links are translated into some un-readble, non-seo friendly characters. You can definitely feel this.

<h2 id="heading-4kem4kwkiocmhcmgucmsocnhcmnocmvydgprbgprgppbgp4hgpqgsiocmhcmgucmsocnhcmnocmvydgppzgpr7gpqjgp4hgpqjgpaq">
ইংরেজি শিখুন, ইংরেজি জানুন।
</h2>

With right transliteration, it would become either of this. Then it would also help with SEO as well.

<h2 id="heading-ইংরেজি-শিখুন-ইংরেজি-জানুন">
ইংরেজি শিখুন, ইংরেজি জানুন।
</h2>

<h2 id="heading-i-nreji-shikhun-i-nreji-jaanun">
ইংরেজি শিখুন, ইংরেজি জানুন।
</h2>

Here's what my last post got in last week.

It would've be a lot more if the community had support for Bengali. Because otherwise I have to hide the post from community and miss a big amount of real users.

I couldn't find any policty about other languages here. Other communities like, dev.to and medium well supports writing in other languages.

Also, I am not sure if this is related, but my bangla blogs shows only one related article, while my main blog shows three articles, which gets more clicks.

Let's make hashnode better.
