Tips: 0.00 INK Postby MeiaGisborn on Tue Oct 18, 2005 8:12 am

What language are you guys speaking in the European Nation in that Venice rpg of yours?

To make this more than just directed to just those two because a few people have used foreign languages; if most of your posts have another language in it, I think we should know what you are speaking(not translation, just what is it) and you should make sure you speak it right, except if you are doing it in a joking manner. ^.^

Some people already are doing this so kudos to them.

I've only used one language so far and that is Krio, it's found in various forms in different parts of Africa. Where I knew it fromis Sierra Leone.

I speak mostly French and Seraphina speaks mostly Italian. To the best of both of our knowledge it is being used right, most of my posts come right off http://www.freetranslations.com because my ability to speak French is wanning with the years.

Just curious. Be warned though that those translation things are not good for grammar in foreign language. That's why most foreign language teachers forbid it. But anyway, I just wanted to know because some of the words you guys were using were a bit sketch but I wanted to know if was all french or some italian, got my answer.

-thanks

Oh, good, I thought I was going to have to do that myself.

Babelfish sucks, plain and simple, kinda like Jack Thompson, the anti-video game crusading Lawyer (Penny-Arcade is having fun with him), but not quite as much, but sucks at lot nonetheless.

And calling it "shitty" is a bit of an understatement.

I'll be watching your posts Gabriel if you screw up the french. :]

Most language translators don't really work for me. I rather learn the language than bother with those things. >__> Or i'm I?
