    Today I have met several non english speaking players. I think this is really awesome but I cant talk to them.

    Can I get a list of players that are multi lingual and what languages you speak so I can refer them to you for help?

    Lets help the new players assimilate to the game!

    Thanks [​IMG]

    You guys are a riot!

    Mav would your wife be interested in helping?
     
  6. That is one aspect of SL that is good, in my opinion. Ppl have scripted translators, albeit, not the best, but they certainly help when trying to converse on a very basic level with ppl whom English isn't their first language. Not sure if that will be something that can be used here in the future or not. I know it won't help in this instance unfortunately.
     
  7. I'm using an online translator to talk to a Brazilian guy, and I'm sure I'm mangling it all up. Someone help!! ACK!! [​IMG]

    Yeah i have run into a few guys speaking Portuguese. I have been able to communicate a tad with them with Spanish/English but i couldn't make them understand alot of things about the game. I feel for them tho lol. I can help out with Spanish speaking peeps if the need comes up.
     
  14. I've run into lots of Russians in the past few days.

    Aweome can some spanish speaking person like yourself come to my house and talk to these folks? And maybe one or 2 english speakers to talk to me. [​IMG]
    I'm at City Park, thanks!
     
  16. New Zealand English is not that much different from your English. I said above with tongue in cheek...however they have sayings that sometimes you need translation for - check this link
     
  17. J'aime employer des poissons de Babel et manger des biscuits.
    Translation: I like using babel fish and eating cookies.

    send francophones my way! I love practicing my french when I can. I currently have a french friend on xbox 360 which is even cooler because there is voice chat. of course, typing and reading is easier since that is most of the practice I get.

    Nopt sure if that would be much help.

    Here's a website that might be able to help you with translations

    "You do not know that men never change? You are dreaming girl!"

  31. Hey Nikki; you know me in the game as Dmitry Kristal and as my name suggests, I speak fluent russian.

    I actually did help a new player out who only spoke russian...we went to the store and bought the things he needed, but I dont think he plays anymore after the merges.

    So if Im not Sim Working, I'm available to interpet...I have both english and russian keyboards set up on my PC.

    And yes, sometimes if I feel sinister, i curse in russian at some players and of course, I cant get banned for that :p

    Sounds like a good idea, but there is one word they know in english. ROSEBUD I keep seeing this, trying hard not to pee my pants from laughter.
     
  38. Yeah, I've come across a lot of Portuguese speakers lately. I've tried to pull out my tiny tiny bit that I speak, lol. (only lived there for 3months) Then I have to drag hubby in to try and speak to them, hehehe. He's fluent in German as well.

    Disadvantage I'd say...being minority and all, but +1 for you having a language up on myself (AB living Canadian).
