    This is really bad German for "May the Force be with You".
    A better way of putting it would be "Die Kraft sei mit Ihnen."
    Did a German Gungan tell you that, or what!
    HA HA HA....give us another one

    How 'bout "Anakin Ni'Doyca Alyina..."




    ...okay, that's cruel, I won't leave you puzzling. In a fan fiction, that was Anakin's full name and it meant "Child of the Light." Hahahaha... oh, the irony...

    Well, I'm glad to see the trend continues in this board now. Ok, here's a REALLY easy one.

    Do, Do Haust, Do Haust Mich. Ok, no translaters, if you can get this, then I'll challenge you.

    First of all Mert, you should get the spelling right!! It should be
    Du
    Du Hast
    Du Hast Mich

    It's from "Du Hast" by Rammstein and it means,

    I
    I Hate
    I Hate You

    Very edifying stuff!! I'm listening to it as I write. It's my favourite band....really!!

    No translators??? How can anyone prove they're not using one? Going with the now-defunct Honour System? Good luck there.

    WooHoo! Old English!! One of my faves.. now as for the translation.... give me a bit.

    Edit:
    OK, I got it. Actually my first guess for the source was correct. :)

    I'm just going to PM Dreamweaver with this one instead, so more people can play. Old English is good for you.

    Woofer, I AM impressed. Your rendering was very good! I once had to translate the entire Parker Chronicles...man was that boring. Beowulf is MUCH better! Thanx for not "revealing yourself to the Jedi" just yet. See if anyone else can get it. In the meantime, I'll try to find something more challenging for you. [face_mischief]

    So there aren't many Old English fans among us aye? Pity!!
    Try this one....at least it's modern;

    Ce tie nu-ti place,
    Altuia nu-i face.

    Good Luck!!

    Wait, we now have 3 phrases that need to be translated.

    Lets get those answered before we start adding more, or people will get confused.

    OK, I'll get confused... but still.

    Come on, Ani. Let someone else do them. You're just getting Star Wars phrases and they're too easy.
