Languages of TAR: Translators needed :)
« on: October 28, 2010, 09:44:55 PM »
We will soon be starting another TAR season, and TAR Aus will be running soon as well, meaning many more fun locations to come!

With the increasing worldwide use of Twitter/blogs/FB posts in various languages, Slowhatch brought up the question of do we have a list of who here speaks what languages?

So if any of you talented posters would be willing to share your language skills and help with translating, would you add what languages you can manage here?

Google translations only take a girl so far, I had some pretty hysterical Chinese ones recently. :lol:

Thanks everyone!

I'm from Portugal, so I speak Portuguese!  :tup:
I also understand a little of Spanish because it's similar to Portuguese.
I had French classes for 3 years so I know a little bit, but it's only a few words :P

English and Spanish.  In fact, I majored in English and minored in Spanish in college.

ETA:  I also know some words in French and a few in German, Russian and Japanese -- but not near enough to carry on a real conversation.

I speak the language of the People from the Philippines.

I know how to transliterate and read Russian and a little bit of Thai, but I really don't understand them at all

I'm not bad at identifying languages. Doesn't mean I can speak them though.

Hi!

I'm from Brazil, so I talk and read in Portuguese as my first language.

I understand, talk and read English, French and Spanish, although don't write as well as I want. I read  Swahili and Italian, but I don't understand orality very well.

If you need me, I'm here for everything :D

Hello!

I'm from the Philippines, so I can translate from Tagalog, Bisaya. I am also fluent in French so I can help.

I know a bit of Japanese but not enough to understand what is going on, I do have a tool to help me so I might be able to translate it.

Spanish, French, German and Japanese here

In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move
