As you know there are some forums for programmers, where the programmer can ask for help from other programmers. It can be a question of your code. So if you ask a question in your language then the chances are low to get the answer of your question. If someone already asked the question you have then the answer will be in English. Yeah, you can find a forum on your language but it won't be a popular as stack exchange, Quora etc.
