International game

Post by turtle » Thu Jan 05, 2006 10:55 am

hey, i saw this on another forum, and i think it is nice.
The rules:
Someone says a sentence/word/whatever he/she wants to be translated into another language. Then the next one translates that sentence into his/her native language, and says another sentence. For example.

User 1: This is just an example.

User 2: Dit is slechts een voorbeeld
Next: What shall I say?

User 3: Was soll ich sagen?
Next:

etc, etc

@ the people who speak English as a native language, for them is this game some less interesting, cause they typ the half just over. But they can still participate if they want, but that is only a shame for the one which is above them, cause their translation has just been the same then :lol:

Okey well let's just begin:

I really don't know what to say as the first sentence :? :wink:

Je ne sais vraiment pas quoi dire comme première phrase.

Though it was a beautiful idea !

Pourtant c'était une belle idée !

Les traductions ne sont pas toujours ce qu'elles doivent être !


note : just to put it right : the first sentence is the translation into the mother tongue of the poster ; and the second sentence is a sentence also in the mother tongue of the poster...

Übersetzungen sind nicht immer das was sie sein sollten.

Es ist eine gute Idee, wenn der nächste Satz auch immer in der Sprache des Users ist.

The cow answered: "Moo."

hm isn't it better just let the 2nd phrase in english?? i mean, not everybody speaks French or German here..and that are then the common languages..but what about Czech or something, then nobody knows what to say at the next post :roll:

Cause the meaning of this game is actually to let a sentence be translated in a language from which you don't know which it will be.
And when the second sentence is english, then everybody understands! :)

Het is een goed idee als de volgende zin ook in de taal van de user is.

I agree we should write the second phrase in English :wink:

Ik ben het ermee eens dat we de tweede zin in het Engels moeten schrijven ;)

So let's just continue it like this, or? :P

Also lasst es uns so weitermachen, oder nicht?

I hope the great changes at EBT that were announced a long time ago will be realized soon.

Zijn we al aan het oefenen voor Amsterdam?

Who can translate this sentence in his own language?

Well, I think everybody can do that!
