All of those translations are incorrect.

That becomes obvious at a number of points. But more than a few of them are still quite funny.

True. I read those in Russian and was like "That's not what they're saying!"

More typical LOLcats, "Hang in there, baby!" type of stuff. When I complete hell week, I may do a bit of translatin'.

Alex, you're bilingual?

I hate you. I hate everyone who is bilingual. I have no facility for learning languages, at all. Bilingual people make me feel stupid!

Obviously not a good time to mention that I speak Finnish, English fluently, Swedish passably and a bit of German. In addition I can order beer in Spanish and tell you to put your hands up in Russian.  Wink

English, Arabic, some Farsi, passable modern Hebrew, and conversational French, German and Spainish!

If it makes you feel any better Glimmer, I'm the only one of my friends that I know that speaks multi-lingually. We here in the UK aren't exactly known for our great language skills. The stereotype of us just shouting louder and more slowly had to come from somewhere right!

And the worst one to learn out of all those - German. It just didn't stick!

Funny, I thought that was us here in the US.

Must be an anglophone thing.

All I've got when it comes to languages is NZ English, Australian English, American English, Engrish, English English, Irish English, Scottish English, and Drunkenese. I also took four years of German in high school, but the only thing I can remember is "mein Hamster ist gestorben*".

German should be easier to learn for a native English speaker. They're in the same language group. French/Spanish/Italian should be harder, since they're a different language group (Romance, I think?).

My Japanese is bloody awful, as it really messed with my head to find out that they have sounds in the language that you don't find in Western languages, like that wierd combination rolling tongue-flicking 'D'+'R' sound. When I got that I went back and reread Shogun, altering my pronunciation of all the names and cackling inanely every time I did it out loud...

My French, German and Greek consists entirely of insults. And ordering food. Strange, that.
