Hi Christian,

Thanks a lot for joining the list.

Previous discussions at our March sprint led those of us present to believe
that adopting JSON-LD would also be suitable for other issues we have, so
it is interesting that you also recommend it for the languages issue. The
only reason I have not written more about this on our blog yet is that I
was hoping to hear back from the JSON-LD list with some feedback for our
group before recommending, but I have not had a response yet. Are you able
to give us confirmation that the JSON-LD approach would be suitable to
solve language issues for your use cases?

Your comments are appreciated, and I hope to hear more from you - thanks
for the help!
