 Languages

Ask questions or just talk about different languages. Since BrainKing is an international game site supporting many languages, this board can be kind of useful.

Since we will be dealing with pronunciation of words rather than their spelling, I think it's useful to have a link to The sounds of English and the International Phonetic Alphabet.


To see translations of some frequently used phrases and sentences in other languages see Languages

King Reza: IMHO, in the examples both phrases referred to the plot. However, in a different context "takes place" could also mean "filmset". Suggesting that a motion picture was produced during ancient Greece is historically incorrect and technically unattainable.

Emne: Halma on Russian
I am so apologize. I suppose game Halma better translate on Russian like Хальма, not Уголки. Because Уголки (Corners) is a game with "home" 3x3, and if black finished just after white will be draw.
Can I suggest my help for rules? Some of words not correct...

Emne: A question
Hi. It looks like the board has been "dead" for quite a while. So, I guess I'm resurrecting it :). Here's my question: I was reading a conversation about a couple of movies, and there were two sentences which caught my attention. One said, "The movie is set in ancient China." and the other said (about a different movie), "The movie takes place in Italy." Am I right in thinking that when we're talking about a movie's being set in a place, we're referring to where the plot takes place, like the movie Mummy (the first one) is set in ancient Egypt, and that when we're talking about where a movie takes place, we're discussing where it has been filmed, so technically, a movie can never take place in ancient China? Correct me, please, if I'm wrong. I'll be grateful.

Zdravo svima! Je li moguće dodati hrvatski jezik na našem siteu? Ja ne vidim razlog da ne može jer već ima npr. bugarski i slovački. Hrvatski mi je najvoljeniji jezik nakon maternjeg bugarskog. A ima li Hrvata na Brain Kingu? Vjerojatno ne bi bilo problem uvesti na siteu i bosanski ili srpski, koje ja također volim.

Artful Dodger: No, I never trust google translate. Unless it's something I was pretty sure about anyway. I just felt it was funny how it was saying the opposite, and the placements of the "not" part of the translation, which changed the meaning to the opposite.

TAROU: Czech translation is very similar to Slovak version, it could be like "To byl hod, samé jedničky."
It is just quite interesting how could get from "jednotky" to "journeys" :)

lizrising: "It was very the journey of hours." ( It was the very time travel )

I translated your sentence into Czech by using "imTranslator", and into English by myself.
So I have no confidence in it...

Toto bol hod samé jednotky.
maybe... Toto=The, bol=(it) was, hod=of hours, samé=itself, jednotky=journey

"This was the very hour drive." <----- Is what I got.

I tried Google translate. The words make sense, but without context it looks like gibberish to me too. Are the Slovak words spelled correctly and in proper tense? I was told this language, Czech, and others in this area can be very strict on these things.

fukuhara: Translation Party is a quite amusing application. It translates english phrases into japanese and then back to english. It continues translating between those two languages until it gets same english phrase two times in a row. Phrase in this link is from the description of this board. Experiment with different phrases and you might get some amazing results.

I have very limited knowledge of japanese but i still find this site very good fun. It should be even better if you're fluent in both languages. It really shows how automated translation still has a long way to go.

Milioi, Gouwe gozer: In my opinion, bad translation is always worse than no translation (and the translation of “príjemnú hru” as “enjoyable game” is as bad a translation as one can be). If people want to use Google Translator, so be it, but they should be aware of the fact that they will rarely get a translation of the original sentence, especially in the case of linguistically distant languages.

Milioi: I agree with you but I started the same discussion a few months ago too and is hopeless in my opinion Some people here just accept ONLY the most perfect translation and all other translations are wrong, bull or worse so I didn't reply anymore
I use " http://imtranslator.com/ " and it gives another different translation. But it gives me the idea what way I have to think about a translation, that's important and enough in my opinion I didn't ask for a perfect line, I asked for a translation, and that's what I receive It is usefull for me

Emne: Re:
Pedro Martínez: I agree that Google Translate is not perfect, but it is much better to have translation from there, when you do not understand a word. You can at least find out what the sentence could be about. And anyway the translation wasn't so bad this time, was it?
