Re: The Owl and the Pussy-cat - to be translated into Albanian

Postby pimpoapo » 2008-10-18, 15:17

Hi everyone,

I'm back with a new request. :) The last six month the http://www.bompa.org has been gone through many changes. One of them is, I started to share the audio versions of the translations.
So I would like to ask someone to help me with the Albanian recording if it's possible. You can send me a PM with a link to your record or send it to my email address that can be found on the site.
Thanks in advance, I'm looking forward to listen the Albanian translation in your language sooner or later, :)

Tungjatjeta!

I guess the best known nickname for Japan in shqip is VENDI I LINDJES SË DIELLIT (please confirm if it's correct).
I'm trying to translate another one: "the land of the cherry blossom". Has anyone heard it by chance and if not, could please suggest a nice translation in the literary shqip?

some materials i found -

Postby SamoSamNina » 2008-11-27, 4:06

I was perusing some stuff and found a site w/ materials for less commonly taught languages (seeing as how Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, which I've studied 2-3 years, and Turkish, currently studying, both fall under that category -- and Albanian DEFINITELY does) - i came across some materials, if anyone ever has the money to invest :P

I'm saving this page and looking longingly at all the materials -- but it's nice to know that they do exist!!!

How would you translate above words to Albanian?
It's the title of a book by Nabokov.

That Language Defense course on there is pretty good, but too bad they don't have the sudio for it, although I guess once you've nailed the pronunciation and are used to hearing it, it would be really good. :D

Yes, but Albanian pronunciation isn't anything to be afraid of. There's nothing particularly odd about it
(normal toneless European stressed language). It's the orthography I'm terrified of. :P

Translation of small text

Postby geonames » 2009-04-04, 17:19

Hi all,

I'm running a website about (mostly) geographical names in several languages ( http://www.geonames.de ) and am looking for a translation of the introduction phrase into Albanian:

"The countries of the world in their own languages and scripts; with official names, capitals, flags, coats of arms, administrative divisions, national anthems, and translations of the countries and capitals into many languages"

Thank you all in advance and enjoy your weekend, or what's left of it.

Albanian learning materials

Postby YngNghymru » 2009-07-14, 14:39

Since apparently I'm heading over to Albania in a year or so, I'm interested in learning to speak the language to a level where I can at least communicate basically! Does anyone have any recommendation as to what materials to buy/borrow/use?

How do Albanian Muslims refer to the Muslim world?

Postby tarkus44 » 2009-07-27, 2:16

Hello,

I am a photographer writing a book about my travels through the Muslim world. The title of the book will be "House of Peace" which is an English translation for the Arabic term dar es-salaam which is one way Arab Muslims refer to the Muslim world. I was wondering if the same term (house or abode of peace) is used by Albanian Muslims? If so, can you provide this in Albanian? If not, can you provide the words that are used to refer to the Muslim World and also their literal English translations?

Thank you

Jeff Amrhein

Nikollë Nikprelaj song?

Postby cordoba_moor » 2009-12-18, 1:36

Does anyone know the name of/lyrics to this song? A song is out there by him called "Kangë dhe potpuri dasmash", but it's not the same.

Any help is appreciated.

Is This Albanian?

Postby zeme » 2010-04-27, 17:54

Image
I was just watching OMNI on television and there were these subtitles popping up over and over, so I took a picture. My first assumption was that this is Kaszubian, but the ç made me think otherwise. I'm fairly certain that it is an Indo-European language, as I was able to recognize a few words and the structure sort of reminded me of Slavic languages without being one. Not being able to categorize it and hearing something about Albania once or twice, I now am pretty sure it's Albanian.

Is it?
The fellow who thinks he knows it all is especially annoying to those of us who do.

Looks very much like Albanian to me. I think it's safe to say that it is, unless it's some Indo-Aryan language in Latin script. :P

Greetings in letters?

Postby ChrisH » 2010-09-11, 17:33

Tungjatjeta!

I just recently started to learn Albanian (on my second week), so my knowledge in this beautiful language is very limited. But I got a question that I haven't find any good answers to, yet, with which I hope you'll be able to help me.

Are there any "special" greetings in Albanian for letters?
In English you often start with "Hello" (or perhaps "Dear", "Greetings") and in Swedish we start with "Hej [recipient]!" (or just "Hej!", both is actually very informal {at least in speech}, but it's still the normal way to start letters).
And then you end the letter with something like "Regards, [name]" in English or "Med Vänliga Hälsningar [name]" in Swedish (translates to "With kind regards", often shorted to MVH).

The start of the letter is often a normal greeting which is used i everyday communication ("Hello" or "Hej"). But the end of the letter is very specific to lettering (most of us don't say "Regards" etc, we say "bye" or "god day" etc).

So: Do I start a letter with "Tungjatjeta" (or perhaps "Mirëdita") and do I end it with "Mirupafshim" or are there any other greetings that is used instead?
I'm interested in both informal and more formal (the letter is to someone I met, but not a close friend, I'm also just curious).

I wish you all the best!

Albanian dictionaries online?

Postby Barbapapa249 » 2010-09-12, 9:52

Hi all!

I was hoping to get some advice on good Albanian dictionaries available on the web... both Albanian-English/English-Albanian and Albanian-Albanian.

What to use :)? Thanks!
