Rainbow, I do not speak German but I do speak French. There are also those who speak Spanish. In addition, there is a translation program (which can be very funny) called babelfish--will someone please provide a link for Rainbow?

You might also enjoy the chatroom provided by one of the forum regulars, where you can ask questions in real time. You will find a hotlink and password at:

KoS is just miffed because he doesn't know how to say "Do you mudwrestle?" in German. Perhaps someone can help?

-- Mudwrestling (fan@of.KoS), November 23, 1999.

Regenbogen, ignorieren bitte KoS! Lassen Sie ihn " Babelfish " wie der Rest von uns verwenden. Sehen Sie? Ich spreche Deutsch jetzt. Es ist magisch! ;-)

KoS, mud is oozing out of your mouth.

Tun Sie Sie mvgen zum Schlammwrestle?

-- KOG (King of Germany@Berlin.com), November 23, 1999.

Eeep!! Using Babelfish can quickly turn a thread into a muddy wrestling match if one is not careful! ROFL!

Here's what I entered into the translator, in English to German, to get what I posted above: "Rainbow, please ignore KoS. Let him use Babelfish like the rest of us. Do you see? I speak German. It's magic! ;-)"

And now I take the above translation and re-enter it into Babelfish, but this time I select German to English translation and I get this:

"please KoS ignore rainbow! Let it " Babelfish " like the remainder of us use. Do they see? I speak German now. It is magic!"

oopsy... :-D

I'm speaking as someone who has for years ruthlessly enforced an "English Only" rule on a popular Internet Relay Chat help channel. We found it extremely disruptive when visitors would speak on open channel in so-called "foreign" languages. Since we had only one "thread" and were operating in real time, it was much more of a problem for us than it should be here. Since we have separate threads, here, those who wish to avoid non-English threads can easily do so.

The internet is an international marketplace of ideas, and Y2K is a problem of global proportion. The greatest hope for the future of human kind is if we can learn to make ourselves understood across political boundries. As the regulars on this forum are aware, there is a dirth of reliable information available on Y2K outside the internet. The information that is available, here is almost entirely in English.

Let's have some compassion for those who come here looking for help. They are probably desparate "just got it's" who are understandably panicked. We can spare them an occasional thread where they can get the help that they need. The lucky ones will be able to read some language or other which has an online English translator. The people who spoke to the original poster on this thread merely pointed them to such resources.

If unfamiliar language threads upset you, skip them (what a concept). I will read them, try my best to understand, and point to help if I can.

Snodgras: Cool it. Dank U Wel!

Doktor Liebe,

Guten Tag - Ich habe den Babelfisch|bersetzer probiert . I tried the Altavista Translator with several simple sentences and a couple with dependent clauses. It spits out some real ugly translations. If you use very basic sentence structure, it can be close. So don't use it to write your will or visa application to the Fatherland. Johan
