    Since we talked so much about various languages and talked a bit in foreign languages, I thought about making a thread where everyone can put in some (basic) words of his or her native language with its translation.
    This way we would get a little dictionary and maybe we will remember some of these words when we read them somewhere else. ;) :)



    I will start with some few words of German. :)

    Bitte. = You're welcome.
    Danke. = Thank you.
    Wie geht es Dir? = How are you?
    Gut. = Good.

    Oh and two very important things...

    Krieg der Sterne = Star Wars
    Möge die Macht mit Dir sein. = May the force be with you.

    No = Ei
    Yes = Kyllä

    Death Star = Kuoleman Tähti

    I doubt there are any Chinese-speakers here in FF Europe... maybe over in Asia. I know only a few words in Chinese myself, and I can't spell them. :p

    The only "sad" thing is that we isolate the Brits a bit, since we use their language as base to translate in. ;)
