English to Esperanto
Can someone translate/transliterate the names of the following characters from the film Wreck-It Ralph into Esperanto?
- Wreck-It Ralph
- Vanellope von Schweetz
- Fix-It Felix, Jr.
- Sergeant Tamora Jean Calhoun
- King Candy
Much thanks in advance!
- Wreck-it Ralph = Malkreanta-ĝin Ralf
- Vanellope von Schweetz = Vanélopi von Ŝǔic
- Fix-It Felix = Fiksanta-ĝin Filiks
- Tamora Jean Calhoun = Tamora Ĝin Kalhún
- King Candy = Reĝo Dolĉaĵo
I have followed Zamenhof, the creator of Esperanto, in transliterating names by putting an accent on the stressed syllable if the stress is not penultimate, and otherwise leaving the names as untouched as possible. The names that are titles ("wreck-it" etc.) I have translated. Please note that I have not seen the movie and I am just guessing the pronunciation of the characters' names based on experience. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:58, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
- Thank you! And now, I can start to learn Esperanto and then talk about these characters in Esperanto. I have two questions though. Would Sergeant translate into Serĝento? And, would Jr. translate into Junulo? -184.108.40.206 03:29, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
- Well, I speak Latin but my Esperanto is somewhat weak. I can understand a lot more than I can write. Given this, I asked an Esperantist to check my translations a few days ago, and he disagreed with them. For one, we confirmed that King Candy appears to be made of candy in the movie by asking a friend, and that lets us conclude that the awkward noun cluster I gave you would be better expressed as Reĝo Dolĉaĵa. Secondly, he confirmed that modern Esperantists do not usually transliterate names or use stress accents — they either leave them alone (like saying "Calhoun") or occasionally fully Esperantize them (like saying "Kalhuno"). Thirdly, he showed that it would be more usual to use the verb destrui rather than the synonymous but rarer malkrei, so Wreck-it would be Destruanta-ĝin.
- I think something like Sarĝento and junula (as an adjective) would work well. If you are interested in learning Esperanto or just asking more questions, I would strongly recommend that you try out Lernu! where Esperantists of all levels discuss la lingvo. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 03:49, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

Can somebody please translate the following into Scottish Gaelic for me;
"Never mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance, or my kindness with weakness."
Edit** Or the line "Don't ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance, or my kindness for weakness."
Which is just a more commonly used version.

English to Latin Translation
I am looking for the correct translation of: "truth is stranger than fiction" into latin, so far in my searches i have come up with two different answers a) veritas est mirabilius fictionem b) veritas est hospes quam fictio
i am trying to work out which is the correct out of the two, if neither are correct what the actual correct translation would be?
- Unfortunately, neither of those is correct. The second one is closer grammatically, but it makes the serious error of getting stranger (as in "strange, stranger, strangest") confused with stranger (as in "don't talk to strangers"). I would say Veritas est mirabilior quam fictio. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:04, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

English to Austrian
listen in austrian
- The principal language of Austria is German. In German, "to listen" is zuhören. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 16:10, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
- If it's about Austrian German or German, when the context is clear hören is more common than zuhören, especially when there is an object -e.g. "das Radio hören" - listen to the radio. The verb hören means both "to hear" and "to listen". Without an object, zuhören is clearer, e.g. Hören Sie zu, bitte! - Please listen! --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 06:01, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
