A translation into your conlangs

Why couldn't we make a translation thread here too? I would like to do this especially to compare conlangs within one language group, like Germanic conlangs.
What I mean, is that we translate this sentence into our conlangs and categorize them into the different real language families.

English: I will make a new home.
Tonsberian: Ik sal skapan niejan hém.

It's interesting that in some conlangs you can simply use such a verb like "to make/ to do" and that other conlangs require verbs like "to build, to construct, to create" for the same sentence 8)

Hmm, seems like Hunef combines best of both worlds, looks like some kind of Dutch influenced Scandinavian and Celtic influenced Scandinavian 8) My my, all these North Germanic conlangs.. A while back Romance conlangs seemed pretty in fashion here, have they all died? :roll:

Well, my conlang Ösjke is also very Germanic, but it has a lot of French loanwords and a phonology where you can see the "foreign" influence. ;)

I think one sentence is really not enough to compare our conlangs... I remember that there was a list of sentences with which you could check if your conlangs are ready for getting published by translating, but I actually don't know where it is...

mine might change some, so if it does, ill repost it, i might use a different verb, im also confused, would that be nominative or accusative for "a new house"

Since "a new house" is the direct object of "built" - accusative. But in many IE languages NOM and ACC look pretty much the same (at least in some declensions)...

I'm was kind of unsure about the sound changes from Old Norse, but I changed keran back to geran. Also sort the conlangs in groups, like Germanic. I wish there could be some Romance here now?.
