Though I'm happy with Italian → Spanish, I would have been ecstatic to see some Portuguese somewhere in here, but I don't wanna mess up the chains, so just consider Portuguese next BTG!

Icelandic → Esperanto = *gulp* awesomeness
The fellow who thinks he knows it all is especially annoying to those of us who do.

Come oooon, that seems pretty easy for me but anyway :) Macedonian is the most understandable language (without using a dictionary) for me and I think my Russian is quite good. Besides to translate from one Slavic language to another one is not that a hard work (moreover my native language is Slavic as well)...

Ancient Greek → Middle Dutch - that sounds interesting. :yep:

It depends on you! I remember last time was the opposite - you had to translate from my Macedonian version, right?

Well, of course it does. :) I'm going to try my best. It was the opposite last time. If I remember correctly there were only a few words that I didn't understand.
