Hello! Help needed.

Postby toddleton » 2017-12-21, 23:01

I'm an author currently working on my second novel, in which I have some characters from Lithuania who occasionally speak in their native tongue. I've google translated what I need for now, but as we all know, google isn't always accurate. Could I possibly get some help with these? Sorry, one of them contains profanity.

"Kill him." Google: "Zudyti jam."
"Lights on." Google: “Sviecia ant." ..as in telling a computer to turn the house lights on.
"Bourbon" Google: "Bourbonas"
"I'm listening." Google: "Klausau." ...or another way one would answer the phone?
"Goodbye." Goodle: "Viso gero."
"Not in God's house!" Google: "Ne Dievo namuose!" ...a priest yells this when a fight breaks out in his church.
"Now!" Google: "Dabar!" ...as in "do something, now!"
"Enough!" Google: “Pakankamai!” ...as in "that is enough nonsense!"
"Screw you, Asshole!" Google: "uzsukite, asle!" ...or anything that carries the context.
"Wolves" Google: "Vilkai" ...as in a secret organization known as The Wolves.

I know there may be unique accented letters, so let me know.

Thanks to anyone who is able to help!

"Kill him." : "Žudyk jį! (command to some one) / žudykite jį! / žudykit jį! (command to some group of people, shortened form is informal)/ žudyti jį (?)."
"Lights on." : "Šviesą!" ..as in telling a computer to turn the house lights on.
"Bourbon" : "Burbonas"
"I'm listening." Google: "Klausau." ...or another way one would answer the phone?
"Goodbye." Goodle: "Viso gero."
"Not in God's house!" Google: "Ne Dievo namuose!" ...a priest yells this when a fight breaks out in his church.
"Now!" Google: "Dabar!" ...as in "do something, now!"
"Enough!" : “Gana!” ...as in "that is enough nonsense!"
"Screw you, Asshole!" : "Užsikrušk, asile!" (formal delicate translation) / Užsipisk, šikniau! (informal, vulgar) ...or anything that carries the context.
"Wolves" Google: "Vilkai" ...as in a secret organization known as The Wolves.

And with accent diacritics (which is used in dictionaries, for children, or foreigners, or to be fully clear when is not exactly clear in some context when is possible two words wich differ only by accent, or with some not known word):

Žudýk jį̃ ! / žudýkite jį̃ ! / žudýti jį̃
Šviẽsą!
Klausaũ.
Vìso gẽro.
Nè Diẽvo namuosè!
Dabar̃!
Ganà!
Užsikrùšk, ãsile! / Užsipìsk, šìkniau!
Vilkaĩ
