If you are fluent in a language other than English....
please post something using the translator. I'd like you to post in another language so we can see how it translates into English.

http://translate.google.com/#nl|en|

Others can post in English and translate it into a language that another member knows.

Just for fun and to see how gramatically incorrect it comes out.

Gelieve iets te posten door gebruik te maken van de vertaler. Ik had graag gehad dat je het in een andere taal doet om te bekijken hoe het zich opnieuw in het Engels vertaalt...

Let's get this beginning people, Observer where are you to.

The funny thing is, It’s understandable, but it’s just not said that way.

Yeah. The way I typed it was, Let's get this started people. Observer, where are you at? That to me is what is so hard about learning another language.


When I type something in English and trans to Dutch, then copy the Dutch and translate from D to E it comes out right. It must be a slang or dialect kinda thing.

I wonder if you can recognise this using the translator

Nevermind then. I thought it looked familiar. This is what Google translates.

Is it one, or is it not?
Is it nobler, the swords and arrows of the unfortunate fate to endure
or
to draw the weapon against the sea of adversity and through them to resist
to defeat them



From Dutch to English to French
Est-il un, ou n'est-ce pas?
Est-il plus noble, les épées et des flèches du sort malheureux à supporter
ou
d'attirer l'arme contre la mer à l'adversité et à travers eux de résister à
pour les vaincre

That's interesting -different translators translate differently; here's how my little translation widget translated that:

Is one it, or isn't one it?
It is noblely, the swords and endure arrows of the unsuccessful destiny
or
to draw the weapon against the sea of adversity and by resisting them them to cover.

Pretty sweet!

An French actor friend of mine said when he does Hamlet in France, they put the inflection on differently... it's a little odd, but I kind of like it.
Observe:
English
To be, or not to be? That is the question.

French
To be or not? To be, That is the question.

It seems interpretation is everything, no matter what language it is. Wink
