    Content ripped out of my post in the mile point premium membership thread.

    There are now EU based travel blog aggregations/hosting under the bonusfeber brand for Sweden, Norway and Demark all linked to at http://bonusfeber.com/, all in the local language. Thanks to the HOM.

    I've told @Randy before that I wish the "administration" would aggregate these sites into one website with automatic translation to English so we could read the great content (that I'm sure they are producing) as well with minimal effort. Just as I have an RSS reader on Boarding Area I'd like to have an RSS reader on an English version of say http://bonusfeber.dk/.

    Google to the rescue, I found that I can do it myself with this documentation: http://www.labnol.org/internet/google-translate-rss-feeds/5110/.

    Here are the links:
    Danish
    Swedish
    Norwegian <-- this feed bombs in IE, but works in a reader or Chrome or Firefox
    Dutch @ http://ikvliegveel.com

    I'll still need to jump over to Google translate once I see an article I want to read. You can now add those feeds to a RSS reader like https://bazqux.com/

    And we agree. as we get closer to the refresh of Milepoint, you'll see just how cool our global strategy is for everyone. Glad you like where we are going. Look for projects in Finland, France, the U.K. and other countries to come. Milepoint is the first global network for frequent flyers—local language matters!

    If you have more blogs to translate, regardless of if the are associated with Randy's endeavors, please share them.

    I've only read a few of the posts so far, one on wine tasting at Anton Bauer, but I still like seeing the diversity in posting.

    Hi @iolaire , I'm one of the bloggers for Ikvliegveel (I Fly a Lot) on http://ikvliegveel.com , it's a Dutch based travel blog, powered by Milepoint & Boardingarea with the support of Randy. There is a group of people from the Netherlands and 2 Belgian people writing content there aimed for the Dutch and Belgian market. A link can also be found in my signature here. Feel free to provide us with any feedback, it's always welcome information to grow and do things right.

    Thank you, I'll add your site to my first post this week.

    I appreciate the verity since a lot of the U.S. sites generate similar content as each other.

    You're welcome, feel free to send me a link where you post it.
    We hope to be helping out a lot of our readers with information about loyalty programs, reviews, hotel tips, and so on, there wasn't really a big blog around in our native language which provided all this info.

    I continue to enjoy seeing the short summary of these posts in my RSS feeds (provided by the translation of the RSS feed shown above.). It still would be nice if there was automated translation of these global posts and they were aggregated in one place - i.e. at the base Insideflyer or BoardingArea websites.
