Broken Translation Game 15

Postby kibo » 2011-05-18, 6:01

------------------
Original post was by Ayiaearel.
------------------

I've decided to start another one of these since we seem to have gotten quite a few new members since the last game. Here's how it works:

1. Everyone posts which languages they can translate to and from with a decent amount of accuracy.
2. I'll create two (or three, depending on how many people join) chains of participants specifying which languages each person will translate to and from.
3. A text will be passed on to each person to be translated multiple times and then finally back into English.

This is what you'll need to do:
1. Translate the text you receive from the previous participant into your target language.
2. Message your translation to the next player.
3. Message the translation plus an English translation of your translation to me.

It's best if you're available enough to translate the text within five days of receiving it. That's all for now. You can entertain yourself with the previous game in the meantime.

Man, I haven't participated in one of these for a long time.

I can translate between:
Chinese (traditional/simplified)
English
German
Romanian

I can attempt to translate from Hungarian, too, but it's probably best not to if the text is too difficult.

I would like to participate again, but I don't think I'll have the time. I'd probably best skip this time. :(

I'm in!

To: Norwegian bokmål, Italian, German, Swedish, Danish, English.
From: Spanish, Norwegian nynorsk and bokmål, Dutch, Italian, German, Swedish, Danish, English.

I'd prefer something with the Scandinavian languages. :P I can only read Dutch (never tried writing it, really) because of the other Germanic languages I know, so eh. Also my Italian is just barely in intermediate territory, so it's mostly listed because I need the practice, haha. ...And my Spanish is pretty rusty, but I usually have no problems just reading it.
Oh, and yeah, I can't write nynorsk. At all. I can read it fluently, though.
So there ya go.
