    And one that doesn't cost any money.

    A couple of people have decided to talk to German in my freinds guestbook and I have no idea what there saying. :(
    My name was mentioned in a German sentence. :con:

    Thanks. :D:tup:

    Though either they can't speak German properly or those Translators don't work. :hmm:

    I just said this to them
    "Kerben Sie Sie wirklich Notwendigkeit, oben auf Ihrem Deutschen zu bürsten ein. Es ist awfull."

    I have no idea if it's right. Can anybody translate?

    Babelfish is ok for getting the general meaning of something you're reading, but for actually writing something it sucks. Don't use it.

    Take a course in German instead, it's a great language :D

    That doesn't look right - my German is crap though.

    I've got a German colleague, so perhaps if you tell us what they posted (in German) and you tell us what you want to say (in English) it'll be easier.

    I'm fairly certain 'awfull' isn't a word, unless it's 'Denglisch' (English words that have passed into German use, like 'breakfasten' instead of 'frühstucken' or 'shoppen' insted of 'einkaufen'). I think you probably misspelt 'awful' ;)

    Just as an illustration, here's what happens if you use Babelfish to translate Ciced's original post into German and then back into English.

    I love babelfish, for the entertainment value ... for example ...
    becomes in babelfish ...
    ... why it has to translate "el concreto" which is simply "concrete" or "the concrete" to "the concrete one" I'm not entirely sure....
