Accepted languages

Post by anna »

This forum uses English language (Including English, American, Australian and any other more or less identical variation.) and no other language will be accepted except under very special circumstances. One such circumstance is when you do not know a certain word in English, you can then use the same word in your own language or another common language instead.

Bad English is OK as many of us are not from English speaking countries. It is always better to post something in bad language than not post at all.

Bondage is like a foreign film without subtitles. Only through sharing and practice can we hope to understand.
A Jedi uses bondage for knowledge and defense, never for attack.

For Reading First Translation tool

It helps if you check with the arrows between the two languages. This allows you to swap the left and right sides. This allows you to read in your own language what google translate has made of it.
If it doesn't match what you want to say, you can sometimes use another word in your own language to get a better translation.

And with most of the computers you can use "<Ctrl> + <C>" to copy and "<Ctrl> + <V>" to paste.
