english to dutch[edit]

I'm sad that we can not talk because of our language difference.

Translate to Dutch language

Ik ben triest dat we niet kunnen communiceren als gevolg van onze taalverschil. —Stephen (Talk) 23:49, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
'Taalverschil' should be written with 'ons' instead of 'onze'. A more natural way to say this would be for example: "Ik vind het jammer dat we niet kunnen praten vanwege ons taalverschil." or, slightly more exact to preserve the , "Ik ben verdrietig dat we niet kunnen praten vanwege ons taalverschil.".-- 15:10, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

"One and one" expression[edit]

I would like to suggest the creation of an article in this expression. "One and one" is found in old songs and several writing I found (quickly). Even very old movie title! And I think the expression can express different ideas, depeding on the context it's used. And, of course, there is: "one-and-one" (maybe it's different from what I know). [1]

@NativeCat Who are you talking to and what is it about? Why the deletion discussion is on the translation requests page and is titled "en>russian 1"?--Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 23:11, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
It is about the article on Wikipedia wikipedia:ru:Мона Вампир, and it is going to be posted in the deletion discussion. I made that title "en>russian 1" because I want to differentiate the title from other titles, since there probably is already "English to Russian" so I have to put something different each time. Also, I want to translate it so that I can put it on the deletion discussion page. NativeCat drop by and say Hi! 23:15, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
@NativeCat A suggestion - maybe you should talk to the Russian Wikipedia guys, not the English Wiktionary? Also, on a deletion, not a translation page. The Russian translation was made by me on this page (above, under "en>russian" header) but I had no idea for its purpose. We have nothing to do with the Wikipedia, let alone Wikipedias in other languages. Pls note that since this topic is irrelevant to translations, it will soon be deleted. --Anatoli T.

English (Or swedish) => German, "riddle postcard" to my Germanspeaking-teacher-sister.[edit]

Where are we going?

10 - To which country we have traveled is clear from the language on this postcard.

8 - An Altbier can be enjoyed here, at the view of a river that is not dirty.

6 - North of the city is a country that is not up and to the west a city that together with an element becomes a vegetable.

4 - While flying to this city, we were lucky that our flight did not offer any nasty surprises over the Alps.

2 - The first part of the city name rhymes with “pyssel”, but if you guess at "Bryssel" you are in the wrong place. Second part of the city´s name means “by” in swedish.

The same text in Swedish:

10 - Vilket land vi har rest till framgår av språket på detta vykortet.

8 - Här avnjuts gärna ett glas Altbier vid en flod som inte är smutsig.

6 - Norr om staden ligger ett land som inte är uppåt och till väst finns en stad som tillsammans med ett grundämne blir en grönsak.

4 - Hade vi flugit från en flygplats som fackmän kallar BCN, kunde vi ha haft otur och fått en otrevlig överraskning över alperna.

2- Första delen i stadens namn rimmar på "pyssel" men om du gissar på Bryssel har du hamnat fel. Andra delen i stadens namn betyder “by” på svenska.

Wo gehen wir hin?
10 - Der Name des Landes, wohin wir gereist haben, ist von der Sprache auf dieser Postkarte klar.
8 - Hier kann man ein Glas Altbier genießen, an einem Fluss, der nicht verschmutzt ist.
6 - Im Norden der Stadt liegt ein Land, das nicht auf ist, und im Westen ist eine Stadt, die zusammen mit einem Element ein Gemüse wird.
4 - Als wir in diese Stadt flogen, hatten wir Glück, dass unser Flug keine bösen Überraschungen über die Alpen zu leiden brachte.
2 - Der erste Teil des Namens der Stadt reimt sich auf „pyssel“, aber wenn man an „Brüssel“ errät, an der falschen Stelle ist man. Der zweite Teil des Namens der Stadt bedeutet „Dorf“ auf schwedisch. —Stephen (Talk) 01:53, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

tuk-tuk - English to Lao[edit]

I was hoping that tuk-tuk (vehicle, a motorized rickshaw) would be something like ຕົກຕົກ (tok tok) or "ຕົກ ໆ" in Lao but there are zero hits on the Web. I know that tuk-tuks are also common in Laos. The Thai spellings are ตุ๊ก ๆ (dtóok-dtóok) and ตุ๊กตุ๊ก (dtóok-dtóok). I have simply converted Thai letters to Lao one to one but no luck. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 06:52, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

@Atitarev Quoting from a Lonely Planet page:
The various three-wheeled taxis found in Vientiane and provincial capitals have different names depending on where you are. Larger ones are called jąmbǫh (jumbo) and can hold four to six passengers on two facing seats. In Vientiane they are sometimes called tuk-tuks as in Thailand (though traditionally in Laos this refers to a slightly larger vehicle than the jumbo), These three-wheeled conveyances are also labelled simply taak-see (taxi) or, usually for motorcycle sidecar-style vehicles, săhm-lór (three-wheels). The old-style bicycle săhm-lór (pedicab), known as a cyclo elsewhere in Indochina, is an endangered species in Laos.
In my experience, I simply used the Thai word in Laos and was universally understood. To me, săhm-lór exclusively refers to a carriage drawn by a bicycle, but this seems to imply that its semantic range is wider than that. Sorry that these are in an idiosyncratic romanisation system. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:32, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you! So "pedicab" (three-wheeler) must be ສາມລໍ້ (sām lǭ) (lit. three wheels) and taxi is ຕັກຊີ (tak sī). Sealang dictionary has "ສາມລໍ້" as "samlor, tricycle, tricycle taxi". (Our Lao transliteration doesn't show tones but correctly shows vowels).--Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 00:38, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
BTW, "săam lór" is the Thai transliteration of "สามล้อ" same as (cognate of) the Lao "ສາມລໍ້". --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 00:43, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
  • @Atitarev According to the 4th edition of the Lonely Planet Lao Phrasebook published in March 2014 the word is ຕຸກໆ (tuk tuk):
    In Vientiane they are also sometimes called túk-túk (ຕຸກໆ) as in Thailand, while in the south (Pakse, Savannakhet) they may be called 'Skylab' because of the perceived resemblance to a space capsule!
    Well I'm back in Pakse now and I was here for a week four months ago and never heard 'Skylab'. I wouldn't be surprised if that's something that used to be used thirty years ago and has lived on as a meme in phrasebooks. When I hear túk-túk here it's usually foreigners saying it. But when I was hitchhiking from the Vietnam border to Attapeu my Lao driver who didn't know much English used the word for a two-wheel tractor, which I'd also heard once in Saravan province earlier in my trip. I haven't been confident enough yet about this to add it to wiktionary though.
    ຕຸກໆ only gets about fifty Google hits but gets a few more if you also look for the spelling variants ຕຸກ ໆ, ຕຸກຕຸກ, and ຕຸກ ຕຸກ. — hippietrail (talk) 08:11, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
@Hippietrail Thanks. I've added the common and the recommended spelling. I should have tried the "u" vowel instead of "o" and I would have found it (this Lao spelling only differs from Thai in the tone marker) but there are some Lao examples with "o" with the meaning "knock", which led me in the wrong direction. BTW, {{ping}} only works if your signature is added in the same edit. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 09:46, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
@Atitarev Ah didn't know that. Just noticed that you hadn't seemed to have seen my comment. By the way, here in Vientian many (sleazy) tuk-tuk drivers try to get tourists attention by saying "tuk tuk" to every one that passes. But I think this is likely to be "tourism-ese" where they use the word because the tourists use it because they picked it up in Thailand. I'll ask one of the guys working in my guesthouse about this but I'm pretty sure Vientiane locals don't call them "tuk-tuk" amongst themselves. — hippietrail (talk) 09:56, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
Also were you aware that "song tiaw" and "jumbo" (or "jambo") are also used for similar vehicles in Laos? I don't have the Lao spellings handy but I'm sure the former is also a Thai word and the latter is not. I've never been clear on the difference between a "samlor" vs "jambo" vs "songtiaw" let alone "tuk tuk" in Lao. I don't think "jumbo" is the biggest among them though. — hippietrail (talk) 09:56, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
ຕຸກໆ (tuk tuk) (tuk-tuk). ສອງແຖວ (sǭng thuǣ) (an open-air bus, as opposed to an air-conditioned one). I think jumbo is ຈຳໂບ້ (cham bō). —Stephen (Talk) 12:51, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

I’m honestly surprised that they don’t have a word for this. I know that Navajo never uses infinitives, but I thought that they had words for everything, including foreign concepts. --Romanophile (talk) 16:09, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
They can make one if they need it. Most English verbs in dictionaries have a single form for the infinitive and the present tense forms except for the 3rd person, so there would be little need for a special word other than verb. If they were looking at Spanish verbs, they might say "main verb", "basic verb", or something like that. I would have to ask what expression they prefer for Spanish infinitives (there would probably be a number of different answers, all valid). —Stephen (Talk) 16:19, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
I have discussed it with some fluent native speakers, and they agreed that they would use the term bee áhodoonííł saad. They have not needed it up to now, since infinitives are not found in Navajo and the term not needed in English by most people. But if they studied Spanish or other language where infinitives were important, this is what they would call it. —Stephen (Talk) 21:16, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

No, it’s a noun. In a case such as « en cas de mal à l'aise » or « symptômes physiques d'anxiété et de mal à l'aise », the Spanish would need the noun incomodidad. —Stephen (Talk) 13:42, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

In diesem hier fehlt sehr viel, was standardmäßig dazugehört. Magst du das ergänzen? Aussprachebaustein, Beispielsatz mit Übersetzung, Übersetzungstabelle und ganz wichtig: die Referenzen. Jeder Eintrag muss belegt sein. Es wäre sehr schön, wenn du dies alles selbst nachträgst. Du lernst dabei am besten, wie es geht :) Ich schaue mir das gerne hinterher an. mlg" --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 03:06, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

"hi, you want to learn how to do it better before you add an entry? A lot of standard stuff is missing here. Do you want to add it? It needs a pronunciation module, example sentence with translation, translation table, and (most importantly) the references. Each entry must be complete. It would be very nice if you fixed all of this yourself. That’s the best way to learn how to do it :) I'll be happy to look at it afterwards. mlg." —Stephen (Talk) 05:44, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Now I wonder what the abbreviation "mlg" stands for. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 09:17, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
I figured it was a signature. If it’s not a signature, it could mean mit lieben Grüßen (with best regards). —Stephen (Talk) 10:18, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
As far as I know, it means "mit lieben Grüßen" (with best regards). - Maths314 (talk) 17:15, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Also from the German Wiktionary user talk page: "fein, bemüh dich weiter und dann wird das schon. Du kannst gerne nachfragen, wenn du etwas nicht verstehst, alle hier sind sehr hilfsbereit. Guck mal alle Anleitungen und Beispiele an. Danke für dein Engagement!" --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 23:23, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Listen to the fire alarm. Once you hear the alarm, evacuate as soon as possible. If you ever get lost, follow anyone else thats why you need to be together. If you get caught up with smoke, get down low and crawl. Do not hide if there is fire. Once you are outside follow all instructions. If there is a risk of explosion, get as far away from the taxi area as possible and face away at all times. As soon as possible,call your local or nearest fire department. If it is safe to go back inside, listen to your school bell. Then follow everyone back inside. Know your fire exists, so in case you are lost in the fire, you must know where your nearest exist is.

Luister vir die brandalarm. Sodra jy die alarm hoor, ontruim so gou as moontlik. As jy al ooit verlore raak, volg iemand anders. Dit is die rede waarom jy nodig het om saam te wees. As jy gevang in die rook, kry laag en kruip op die vloer. Moenie wegkruip as daar is 'n brand. Sodra jy buite is, volg al die instruksies. As daar is 'n risiko van die ontploffing, beweeg so ver weg van die taxi area as moontlik, en draai jou gesig weg van die brand te alle tye. So gou as moontlik, bel die naaste brandweer. As dit veilig is om terug te gaan binne, luister vir jou skool klok. Dan volg almal terug binne. Weet waar jou branduitgange is, sodat in die geval dat jy verloor het in die brand, sal jy weet waar jou naaste uitgang is. —Stephen (Talk) 07:21, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Can you translate the Ghandi quote "My life is my message" thank you

Моє життя – це моє повідомлення. —Stephen (Talk) 10:50, 13 May 2015 (UTC)
I would translate as Моє́ життя́ — це моє́ посла́ння (Mojé žyttjá — ce mojé poslánnja). (The Russian equivalent: Моя́ жизнь — э́то моё посла́ние (Mojá žiznʹ — éto mojó poslánije). The terms "повідо́млення" (Ukrainian)/"сообще́ние", "уведомле́ние" (Russian) are more like "notification or message (communication)", послання (uk)/послание (ru) sound more poetic and may include the "underlying topic" sense. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 02:21, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
I see that native Russian speakers have problems with some translations of the English "message" and they use "сообще́ние (soobščénije)", which is incorrect in such cases. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 02:28, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

happy birthday to Burmese[edit]

"Happy birthday" to Burmese, please. All examples I could find (romanised or misspelled) seem to use မွေးနေ့ (mwe:ne., birthday) but I couldn't find the full greeting on the web. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 02:10, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

This web page says: မွေးနေ့မင်္ဂလ၁ပါ (mwe:ne.mangga.la.1pa, a happy birthday). I do not know if it is correct. —Stephen (Talk) 14:20, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
@Stephen G. Brown: Thank you, Stephen. I saw this link and rejected it first. It has a character , which is number 1. You gave me an idea and I think I found it. I think it should be မွေးနေ့မင်္ဂလာပါ (mwe:ne.mangga.lapa) = မွေးနေ့ (mwe:ne., birthday) + မင်္ဂလာပါ (mangga.lapa, hello). Google search has hits with and without a space between the two parts (a bit more without). @Angr, could you help with this request or double-check? --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 13:52, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
I don't know Burmese well enough to know what people actually say to each other on their birthday, but မွေးနေ့မင်္ဂလာပါ (mwe:ne.mangga.lapa) means "birthday greetings" and seems eminently plausible to me. The pronunciation is IPA(key): /mwénḛ mìɴɡəlàbà/. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 14:05, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

English to Lao[edit]

How can I ask for another/one more drink/glass/bottle/coffee etc?

I thought I might've asked for this before but can't seem to find it. I want a polite natural way to say it, not a literal word-for-word translation from English of course. — hippietrail (talk) 09:40, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

ຂໍອີກແກ້ວ (khǭ 'īk kuǣ) if you want to ask for another bottle, I think. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 12:43, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Compare to Thai ขออีกแก้ว (kŏr èek gâew). --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 12:47, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
@Hippietrail. You normally order food or drinks with ຂໍ (in Lao) and ขอ (in Thai). I don't know much about Lao polite particles, they are probably similar to Thai. You can try yourself. They are not mandatory, especially if you're a customer. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 12:54, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
According to this Thai and Lao Quora article, Lao doesn't have equivalents of Thai polite particles. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 13:09, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Ah yes it's the ອີກ ('īk) that I'd forgotten. Our automatic transliteration for ແກ້ວ (kuǣ) is still broken. It should be more like the Thai word with the 'w' at the end rather than between the initial consonant and the vowel. Lao writing is more ambiguous in practice than it looks at first glance.
Lao doesn't have the 'krap'/'ka' polite particles like in Thai. There are other polite particles of a different nature, that I guess Thai has equivalents of. One is ເດີ (dœ̄) - you'll often see it used to make "thank you" more polite: "kop chai" -> "kop chai deu". And for ordering things there is ແດ່ () that is sometimes translated as "please". — hippietrail (talk) 03:18, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
I agree about the transliteration of "ແກ້ວ", which is unambiguously "kǣu". The diphthong ແ-ວ surrounds the consonant "ກ" from both sides and the diacritic (້) is a tone diacritic we don't use for transliteration purposes. Unfortunately, Wyang seems to have given up major work at Wiktionary and no-one is taking over. He should be able to fix it.
The equivalents of Thai ครับ and ค่ะ/คะ are not used in the same sense in Lao - neither as particles, nor as a "yes" answer to a yes/no question. Sort of equivalent are ຂ້ານ້ອຍ (khān 'a nya), which also means "I" (respectfully) but is also used as a politeness particle at the end of a sentence, only if "I" is missing. Thai seems more "polite" and formal. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 03:55, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

I see. I won't try to try translate Lermontov poetically but here's the meaning (it doesn't sound well in my translation, sorry):
В минуту жизни трудную,
Теснится ль в сердце грусть,
Одну молитву чудную
Твержу я наизусть.
In a difficult minute of life
Is a sorrow squeezing in my heart?
I keep reciting a wondrous prayer by heart
Есть сила благодатная
В созвучье слов живых,
И дышит непонятная,
Святая прелесть в них.
There's a blessed power
In the harmony of the living words
And a holy beauty is breathing in them
С души как бремя скатится,
Сомненье далеко —
И верится, и плачется,
И так легко, легко...
Doubts will roll off far away from my soul like a burden
And I want to believe and I want to cry
And I feel so light, light (at heart)

pls translate to china[edit]

You must mean "Chinese", not "china". Here's my try:
親愛的時候拿來需要學費 [MSC, trad.]
亲爱的时候拿来需要学费 [MSC, simp.]
Qīn'àide, nǐ lái de shíhou, nálái hěn duō qián. Wǒ xūyào hěn duō qián fù xuéfèi. Wǒ ài nǐ. [Pinyin]

No, they just mean translate as in "subject to linear motion". Keφr 12:40, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Maybe "my love" is Wiktionary and they want us to transfer plenty of money to China? ;) --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 13:11, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Translation requests are so weird. Anyway, here is my version:

親愛的需要很多時候 [MSC, trad.]
亲爱的需要很多时候 [MSC, simp.]
Qīn'àide, wǒ xūyào hěnduō qián, nǐ lái de shíhòu dài xiē qián lái. Ài nǐ. [Pinyin]
My love, I need plenty of money. Please bring some money when you come. Love you.

I'm not sure what fees are meant in the question, so I removed it as it made the sentence sound unnatural. Wyang (talk) 23:56, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Could anyone please translate the following for me (in quotation marks below? I am pretty sure google translate is not up to scratch and really need to get this right. Any help would be much appreciated.

'Deal with your demons, before they deal with you.'

Thank you all in advance.

  1. Age igitur daemones antequam agant te.
  2. Vince daemones antequam vincant. (two versions...wait to see if someone can improve) —Stephen (Talk) 13:22, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
The verb ūtor is frequently used to mean deal with both in terms of manage and have dealings with. So I might also propose:
Utere daemonibus antquam te utantur.
Though I think both of Stephen's would work nicely. —JohnC5 19:30, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you so much for your help. I have had a look on google translate (again, I know this is not the best thing to do) but with your sentences I have managed to create the below:

Vinco daemones antequam agant te vincant

Does this make sense or am I way off? Thanks again, David

That means "I conquer demons before they act they conquer you." So no. —Stephen (Talk) 08:36, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Please translate from drunk to sober[edit]

Last night I hung out with a Beatles tribute band. I don't know why either. Today I came down and found a note I had written myself, which says "L8 - just 8dlx + Fiz...". I have no idea what this means, although I think it starts with "late". Please translate to sober English. Equinox 10:09, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

My guess would be ‘late—just eight downloads and [a] fizzy drink,’ but that’s only a guess. It’s possible that ‘fiz’ is a very colloquial way of writing ‘physics,’ or something else starting with phys‐. --Romanophile (talk) 09:49, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

English to Croatian[edit]


I'm not that familiar with Croatian. Croatian Wikipedia has an article on "heroin" (without diacritics), but the Serbo-Croatian entry heroin has the Roman listing with diacritics (heròīn). --WikiWinters (talk) 18:56, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

heroin is correct. Serbo-Croatian has a pitch accent, which is used in speech but not indicated in writing. The entries here use a system of diacritics (Slavicist system) to indicate the pitch accent, but in normal text the diacritics are not used. In the case of heroin, ò = short vowel with rising tone; ī = nontonic long vowel. —Stephen (Talk) 09:00, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Is this the same for Latin entries? I've noticed that they contain diacritics as well, but are they normally used in writing? --WikiWinters (talk) 21:00, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
The breve is used only in Latin dictionaries. The macron was not used in Classical times, but is sometimes written in modern Latin editions.
A number of languages use special marks or letters in dictionaries that are not used in normal text. Italian dictionaries use an accent to show the word stress, and the letter ʒ to indicate a /zh/ sound, but in normal Italian text only a final accented syllable may be marked, and no special letters are used. —Stephen (Talk) 04:26, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

English to Latin translation request[edit]

Hello I would like the following translated into Latin. It is a very meaningful thought to my life and feel it deserves some eloquence. I do not believe a persons professional should always follow what one loves. Quite often when a person tries to make a living around something the love the result is resentment. I do not want to lose my passion for those things I love. The other side is that success is more likely when a person pursues a professional path the benefits from their strengths.

Do what you do well. Enjoy what you love.

Thank you, Paul Ziemer

How do you say "sexy" in English? --WikiWinters (talk) 21:06, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
/ˈsɛksi/ ... but Italian does not use the letter x like that. The Italian word for sexual is sessuale. The Italian word for sexy is attraente, but if they borrow from English, it is supposed to be spell sexy. —Stephen (Talk) 08:18, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
I was puzzled by your response; I thought you were being a wise guy at first, but then I realized I had said "English" instead of "Italian." Haha, that's embarrassing... So, the standard translation for "sexy" is attraente, but word-for-word is sexy? I'm curious because I wonder what a translator would do if it came up in movie dialogue, perhaps in the form of "She's sexy." --WikiWinters (talk) 14:43, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
The Italians use the adjective sexy, they also use sexy-shop (I'll add it). SemperBlotto (talk) 14:48, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

  • This is all in Chinese characters, leading me to think it's not Japanese.
The writing is quite stylized, and it is difficult to tell what the characters are intended to be.
  • The topmost character might be (the Japanese simplified version of “to start; to become”), maybe (zodiac symbol). The radical looks like , but Index:Chinese_radical/癶 doesn't show anything that quite fits. Another option would be a radical of with on the bottom (maybe a surname?), but Index:Chinese_radical/入 also has nothing that fits this. It could be a broken-down version of (“to eat”).
  • The second one is probably (“chisel”).
  • The third one escapes me.
  • The fourth one is also hard to identify. The likeliest option would be a broken-down version of 寿 (“long life, longevity”).
  • The last one is clearest, and it looks like (“to go”).
