Mamma wünscht diese Seite mehrsprachig sein.


Я не говорю эти также.

So, in short, if you're struggling with the languages here, know there's only supposed to be two: English and Portuguese. For help with the Portuguese, try these sites ... Para a ajuda com o inglês, tentar estes locais:

  • Ah yes, Babel Fish. A shining example of "it loses something in the translation."

    Try translating the first two paragraphs of the entry "The Book Is On The Table."

    According to Babel Fish, you're walking with an animal-carpenter, thinking of something legal and, apparently, some guy is going to be with your baby.

    From this, I am left to assume that you have a pet beaver that you regularly take for a walk. Also that you're going to sue someone (possible Babel Fish). And, like Britney Spears, you're hiring a male nanny (a "manny", as they say) to take care of the baby.

    I am sitting typing now, but I hope to stand corrected in the near future.

  • This is for all of you Brazilians out there. Translate this:

    One bright day in the middle of the night
    Two dead men got up to fight
    Back to back they faced each other
    Drew their swords and shot each other
    A deaf policeman heard the noise
    He came and shot those two dead boys
    If you don't think this lie is true
    Just ask the blind man, he saw it too.

    Just having fun with Babel Fish.

  • Yeah, Babelfish has many, many translation problems. Brazilians have their own translation problems, too, like "I'll call you" means "I won't call you, but I'm trying to be polite" and "See you soon" means "Let's politely acknowledge our decisision to never see each other again."

    'Course, these are the same folks that think a Brazilian invented the airplane. In Paris. Two years after the Wright Brothers. So you have to learn to smile a little when the facts get in the way of the argument, then order another Brazilian beer.

  • Why the sick pleasure of taking away one of the few glories of Brazil in the history of mankind? Sheesh!
