The license is only attached to a single URL (per the license agreement), though if you are displaying 100% identical content on another URL, we generally allow that.

What you're mentioning is getting into a grey area as the content/appearance may start changing between the URLs.

because my default page is in germen so i wanted the non-german speaking users give the opportunity to understand the homepage, ok then they must find the language button and klick on englisch^^

You could use a Notice explaining in both German and English how to change the language.

I'm curious though, if there are non-German/English speakers using the forum, how do they manage to converse in threads?
Or do they just stick to threads in their own language?
