Help! Letter in some Ethiopian language!

Postby france-eesti » 2019-07-05, 15:30

Hi there!
Guess what, I got a letter from my sponsor child! She is from Ethiopia!
I am not sure about whether this is Amharic or not...
Can anyone here read Amharic?
I'll provide a scanned version
I'm so excited! :D

Only a very little bit with help of language tools on the internet. If it is in a young child's handwriting, probably less so. But if you want to post a scan, I could give it a try....

Thanks! At least I'd like to determine which language it may be... I'm not sure it is Amharic...
As soon as I can have my husband scanning it, I'll post it here :)
(Hoping there is nothing personal - anyway as you say few people can read it) :ohwell:

You could upload it to a image uploading site (such as imgur, or imgbb) and then link it here.

That's assuming the error is specific to UL, of course.

You could also try taking a smaller picture of it and posting that instead, or perhaps posting a thumbnail. I've had to do that before. I'm not sure whether that works for you in this case or not, though.
