Default Non-English players: What's more beneficial?

Hey, I'm currently trying to find out what the best way of connecting with new players is. Basically, the situation is this:

There are languages, but what's the best way of attracting new players? Like, what would you do if you were searching for a server?

When you type in the Language box in the SA-MP client, do you:
  • Type in the language in your language (for example, if you're Spanish, you'd type Espaņol)?
  • Type in the language in English, regardless of your language (for example, if you're Spanish, you'd type Spanish)?

I hope that makes sense, I'd just like to see what would appeal to Non-English players more.

As an Italian, the latter, for sure.

To confirm, you'd type Italian in the 'Language' box when searching for a server? Apologies if this is fairly obvious, just want to make sure I understood correctly.

No, I'd type "Italiano". In this case, "Italian" and "Italiano" are very similar so there is no issue, but for example "Spanish" and "Espaņol" are different words. In this case if I were you, I would put both in the language parameter.

I would, but the language text is very limited. I've put Portuguese and Spanish in their respective language, but adding more wouldn't work due to text limitations.
