If you would like to have a word or even a whole sentence translated, this is the right place for your request. Since this is a multilingual dictionary in English, ask your question in English, specify from which language your word/phrase is and into which language(s) you would like to have it translated. It would be appreciated if those people providing translations added them to the entry of the requested word. Also see Dictionary:Requested entries to request an entry.

For fast translations, you might consider using Google Translate[1] or Yahoo Babelfish[2]. Both sites make imperfect translations in a wide range of languages, but the former site is especially useful for translations between English and Chinese or Arabic.

Translation help

GNU LIBRARY GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 2, August 2008 Copyright © 2008 <> ., 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA Enterprise risk management From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This is not exactly a request for a translation, as I think I know what this means, but I was wondering if somebody could verify for me whether "Qu'elle aille au diable" is correct French (and a natural construction), and if not, tell me what the correct phrase would be. It's supposed to be a dismissive curse - like "she can go to hell" (don't worry, it's for fiction, not for any specific real person). Help would be appreciated. RobbieG 01:22, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

To the extent that you haven't got an answer yet, it is correct.
I suggest you google such phrases, if they appear in a regular text, then they must be correct.
This might even help you see the context in which they are used.
Thank you very much! RobbieG 22:47, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

cement itself in french


In the sentence "PPP seemed to have cemented itself a status as the strongest Opposition Party" from United Developpement Party, may be se construire ???

thks Serpicozaure 07:50, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Mmm...I am not a native speaker, but I have never seen se construire used that way - to me it would mean "built for itself" rather than "made itself into". I would probably say something like, Il semblait qu'ils avaient cimenté leur standing... etc. Widsith 08:11, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Can anyone translate "I am blessed" in chinese.

Translation pls: May God Bless You.

Can anyone please provide the translation of "May God bless and keep you." and "The almighty' blessings are with you." in Hindi and Urdu???

Thnx in advance

Arabic or maybe Farsi? Not sure

Could someone please translate لحظاتي for me? Thank you in advance!

Could be "my glances" in Arabic, a possessed form of لحظات (laħaʐāt), which is the plural of لحظة (láħʐa) (glance, look, glimpse, moment). —Stephen 05:42, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

or could also mean "my moments", because the word "láħʐa" can work both ways


i would much appreciate if you could translate in arabic " have a blessed journey' and " may God bless you" also my name " Lorena" thank you so much

have a blessed journey: له الرحلة المباركة (luh ar-ríhlat al-mubāraka)
may God bless you: بارك الله فيك (báraka-llāħu-fíik)
Lorena: لورينا
—Stephen 04:52, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

"Have a blessed journey" is said: "Rehlatan mubaaraka" رحلة مباركة (luh ar-ríhlat al-mubāraka) means "may he have the blessed journey"

Tongan Request

Can anybody tell me what "fifita" means in Tongan? (if at all) Jakeybean 12:02, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

"My Love"

My boyfriend is Chinese and as i'm very language curious i asked him what "my love" (as in person. "You, my love") would be and he doesn't know what it would go to so if someone could please help that'd be very much appreciated. I did an online translator and came up with chinese-traditional of 我的愛 which the pinyin is roughly "wǒ de ài" translating into i(me-myself) of love but i wish to be sure if that's correct or not... I'd like it in Cantonese, Mandarin, AND japanese (romaji and character) if possible. For chinese, please include pinyin and chinese-traditional. Merci. -mari

No, not that. You could use:
Mandarin: 愛人 (àiren), 情人 (qíngrén) or 意中人 (yì zhōngrén)
Japanese: 恋人 (こいびと, koibito), 情人 (じょうじん, jōjin), 思い者 (おもいもの, omoimono), 意中の人 (いちゅうのひと, ichū no hito)

Thanks so much. -mari

Bosnian translation please.

French formulaic/idiomatic phrases

  1. "dis donc" or "dis donc!"
  2. "à vous vous"


"dis donc" (do tell). In "à vous vous" I think there is something missing. —Stephen 19:38, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
I also noticed that "bravo" has no entry for French. It's a cognate in several different languages, and I'm fairly sure this is the case for French. If someone could verify this and/or add this to the entry for "bravo", then I'd say "Bravo".

english thailand translation

can you help me translate some of thailand language like hello,how are you,i'm ok,your beautiful,i love you,i miss you.thanks for consideration

These examples are meant to be spoken by a man:

you’re beautiful = เธอเป็นคนสวย
I love you = ผมก็รักคุณ
I miss you = ผมคิดถึงคุณ

How would you say "I think you are very beautiful and i would like to kiss you." Could you also add the pronunciations too please:)

Absolutely. —Stephen 15:37, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

I hope this "translation" was properly understood as the April fool's joke it was. For those who care for one more suited to the hypothetical circumstances, here are two versions, according to whether you are on a "tu" or a "vous" footing:

Je te trouve très jolie et j'ai envie de t'embrasser
Je vous trouve très belle et je voudrais vous embrasser

—This unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 06:59, 19 April 2008.

I do not want to oppose anyone, but embrasser is better, because baiser no longer means what it used to (during the Ancien Régime). Baiser in the meaning of "kiss" is literary and has a much more carnal meaning in comtemporary colloquial French... Perhaps therefore the IP compared it to a joke, but for novices in the French language the modern meaning of baiser can have serious repercussions. Bogorm 18:09, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
To put the previous comment into plainer terms, "baiser" means "to fuck", no more, no less. It hasn't meant "to kiss" for about a hundred years. 20:48, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Translate these English sentences into Japanese using the English alphabet?

I do not know much Japanese myself, but I know a bit about Japanese culture, which inspired me to write a story. Unfortunately, I need one character to say a few things in Japanese. Things I don't know how to say. This is for a project in my Creative Writing class, and we are working with dynamic dialogue skills. I have a thing about doing things right, so I decided to get the dialogue properly translated. Please help me?

These are what I need translated, in order:

1. "I don't know him. He just followed me home one day."

2. "My first day here and I'm already Public Enemy Number One. Fantastic."

3. "I promised myself and my counselor I would not do this... HEY! WHAT'RE YOU DOING?!"

4. "Please tell me he didn't just do that."

5. "Mom is going to know about this if it kills me."

6. "Why did I let him come with me? Why?!"

7. "What the heck was THAT?!"


and finally...

9. "Must... resist urge... to strangle."

Does "puta" mean "think" in Latin?

propria hominum nomina in quattuor species dividuntur, praenomen nomen cognomen agnomen: praenomen, ut puta Publius, nomen Cornelius, cognomen Scipio, agnomen Africanus.

(Men's personal names are of four types, praenomen, nomen, cognomen and agnomen: For praenomen think of Publius, for nomen Cornelius, for cognomen Scipio and for agnomen Africanus.)

Thanks Mallerd 10:43, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

It means "for instance" or "suppose". It is from the imperative of putō (think, consider, reflect), but has acquired an almost independent existence as a word. --EncycloPetey 12:28, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

No, it’s a joke. Latin coito isn’t present indicative, but future imperative (2nd person singular). The 1st-person present indicative would be coeo (I assemble, I come together, I unite, I combine). —Stephen 11:28, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Latin translation for swim#Noun

I.e., “an act or instance of swimming”. Also, is there a Latin word for “occurring or taking place after a swim”? –Presumably: post-[Latin word for a “swim”]… Danko.  (u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 15:17, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

natātiō is "an instance of swimming; a swim". The prefix "post-" is typically added to a verb, rather than to a noun, and usually results in an adverb or a new verb. To say "after a swim", you would use a phrase with the preposition post rather than a compound with the prefix post-. --EncycloPetey 21:03, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Latin to English

Can anyone please translate these five phrases into latin?? plural and singular

1. True heart(s)- 2. Strong body(ies)- 3. Sharp Mind(s)- 4. Pure spirit(s)- 5. Heart, body, mind, spirit-

In order to translate them appropriately, it is necessary to know the grammatical case (nominative, genitive, etc.) for the context in which these phrases will be used. --EncycloPetey 20:59, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

What if they stood alone, without any other context, such as a in a motto for a group or school? Would that constitute the genitive case? (the group's true hearts, etc.)?

Mottoes don't usually stand alone. The mottoes I'm familiar with are usually sayings or aphorisms, typically with a verb making a statement or command, though I have seen prepositional phrases.
The genitive would not make sense without a noun for the genitive forms to belong to. The dative might make sense, but so might the accusative depending on what it is you're trying to say. --EncycloPetey 02:58, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

In that case are there any other latin phrases that comes close to each one?

This conversation seems to be going in circles. Here are the nominative singular forms for each item; you can inflect them however you wish:
  1. cor vērum (true heart)
  2. manus fortis (stong hand - "body" doesn't quite work in Latin)
  3. mens acūta (keen mind)
  4. animus pūrus (pure spirit)
--EncycloPetey 04:02, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks so much! Sorry for the trouble and ineptitude I might have exhibited. Truthfully I know little of the language and wanted the translations for an English project that I am working on. I doubt that my instructor will investigate my Latin for incorrect syntax. But it's nice to be accurate despite this. I found other translations such as "verus viscus et validus animus" and "verum cor et fortis animus" for "true heart" but I wasn't sure of them as they came from unreliable sources (as if wiki isn't. ha.), but I've notice you've contributed a lot before so I'd rather take your word. Anyways, I appreciate it!! Feel free to erase/edit this "thank you" entry after reading, I'm sure it doesn't contribute to the site very well.

Hungarian and Russian

What does the Hungarian "lófasz a seggedbe" mean? I am quite certain it is not nice, but I want to know what it actually means, same for Russian бля. What does it literally mean? Mallerd 08:58, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

The actual Russian word is блядь. And it literally means "whore" or "bitch" сука. But it is used as a general expletive and sometimes shortened as you did. Sometimes in polite company the euphemism блин is used, which actually means "pancake". It has the power of an English "shit" or "fuck" depending on the intonation and circumstances. Need to find a Hungarian for the rest of your query

I see you're an expert in Russian vulgarities, so thank you! Can you create the бля entry? Mallerd 09:29, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

"lófasz a seggedbe" means "a horse’s cock up your arse" (where =horse, fasz=prick, a=the, segge=arse, -d=your, -be=into, illative case). —Stephen 11:16, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Japanese to English

Could someone please translate 封入 to English? I know it's fūnyū in romaji and that 封入する means to enclose (e.g. something in a letter) but I don't know what 封入 means on its own. I would like an accurate result since it will be put into an article here on Wiktionary.If it's not too much trouble could you also translate 塵入, 算入, 参入 , 浸入, 切入 and 転入 with romaji. Thanks in advance --PalkiaX50 13:22, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

封入 (fūnyū, noun) means enclosure (like 同封).
塵入 (ごみいれ, noun) trashcan
算入 (さんにゅう, noun) factoring in, including
参入 (さんにゅう, noun) coming, visiting
浸入 (しんにゅう, noun) permeation
切入 (せつにゅう, noun) OFF/ON (on a switch)
転入 (てんにゅう, noun) move in (into a house) —Stephen 17:51, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

没入 (immersion, being absorbed in) is a noun. It takes する. —Stephen 19:28, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks again. These are the last two (well at least for now):場所入&平上去入. Please give hiragana as well.--PalkiaX50 19:38, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

場所入 (ばしょいり) arrival of the sumo wrestlers to the tournament venue
平上去入 (ひょうじょうきょにゅう) the four tones in old Chinese phonetics

It's me again, with another request,namely 濫入. Please include hiragana.--PalkiaX50 23:28, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

濫入 (らんにゅう, noun) entering without permission, unauthorized entry. The verb "enter without permission" is made with する. —Stephen 15:22, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you once again Stephen.--PalkiaX50 19:16, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

弯入 (わんにゅう, noun) a curved indentation (especially in the stomach). —Stephen 20:02, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Hmm...interesting. Where did you get that definition?--PalkiaX50 20:36, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

I believe that one was in Kodansha’s Japanese English. A lot of them are also in my Sanseido’s, although Sanseido’s definitely has some shortcomings. —Stephen 20:58, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Where did you get them? Would I be able to order one of those Kodansha dictionaries off a website(preferably one that accepts payment methods other than credit cards and Paypal)?--50 Xylophone Players
You can find Kodansha at Amazon: Kodansha Japanese English. —Stephen 15:20, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Strangely enough Unihan has a definition for 入婿 but not for 婿入 so I'd like a definition for the latter.--50 Xylophone Players

No entry for 立入 either...--50 Xylophone Players 13:31, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
婿入 (むこいり, noun) "being adopted into the bride’s family".
立入 is short for 立入り:
立入り (たちいり, noun) entering.
立入る (たちいる, verb) to enter, to interfere.
立入禁止 or 立入り禁止 (たちいりきんし, noun) no entry, no trespassing.
立入検査 or 立入り検査 (たちいりけんさ, noun) on-the-spot inspection. —Stephen 15:20, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

English to German

how do i say germany is a beautifal place in german? —This unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

I'm not an expert in German translation, so you may want a second opinion, but I'd say it like this:
Deutschland ist ein schöner Ort.
Rod (A. Smith) 16:49, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
I think Ort is better for smaller places such as towns. I would say "Deutschland ist ein schönes Land". —Stephen 14:07, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
You can say both. "Ort" can also apply to places in general. Die Erde ist ein schöner Ort can be said in relation to the universe. However, if you say "Deutschland ist ein schöner Ort", you rather mean it as a nice place to live there, while "Deutschland ist ein schönes Land" has a more general meaning and can also be said about any other country. You can see the difference, if you try to combine adjectives with it. A "Ort" can be gemütlich, a "Land" can only be schön. Furthermore, Deutschland ist ein schönes Land sounds much better and natural. Just try a Google search on it. I have no idea, how to find other words than exactly Deutschland ist ein schönes Land. It's a good example for schön as a word, you hardly can replace with any other word. -- Arne List 10:01, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

I'd like 嫁入道中 translated to English with hiragana. Also could someone tell me if namen jane (sorry if word divisions or spelling are wrong) really is Japanese for "Screw you!"?--50 Xylophone Players 18:39, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

嫁入道中 (よめいりどうちゅう, noun) nuptial procession. I think namenjane (i.e., namerun janai-zo temae) is from 嘗める, 舐める (なめる) and means something like "don’t underestimate me". —Stephen 19:47, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

A small problem with a kanji combination...入掛. In the Unihan Database it say it means "called off" but what part of speech should I say it is?--50 Xylophone Players 15:24, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Go to "My Preferences" and one of the boxes you will see there is for "Signature". After that has been set, all you need do is type ~~~~.
入掛 (いれかけ, noun) suspension (said of a performance, match, etc.). —Stephen 15:27, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

I have a bunch of requests again (from a page I previously worked on and had forgotten about.*thinks out loud* seems like putting them on the requested articles page did nothing) 華人, 官人, 漢人, 客人, 後人, 工人, 私人, 旅人, 党人, 魔人, 無人. Oh and I nearly forgot don't be surprised if some of them come up as blue links when you post the translations; that will be because some of them have articles for certain dialects of Chinese but have no sections for Japanese. --50 Xylophone Players 17:19, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

華人 (かじん, noun) I think this is a term for "Chinese people".
官人 (かんじん or かんにん or つかさびと, obsolete noun) low-ranking government official; public servant
漢人 (かんじん, noun) a Han Chinese
客人 (きゃくじん, noun) caller, visitor, guest, company
後人 (こうじん, noun) posterity, future generations

Thanks so much! :D --50 Xylophone Players 18:15, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Um... since 無人 is a -na adjective would it be okay to tag it as an adnominal and create a separate article for 無人な?--50 Xylophone Players 16:12, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes. In fact, there is a special category for them: Category:Japanese な-na adjectives. There would need to be a link to 無人な from 無人. —Stephen 16:56, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Okay, thanks.--50 Xylophone Players 17:27, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

入居 (にゅうきょ, noun) moving in (into a house), more common than 転入.
入漁 (にゅうぎょ, noun) fishing in restricted waters. —Stephen 16:22, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Advanced Spanish: Mecano song "stereosexual"

Here's a fun one to try to make heads or tails of.[3] I think that several of the words here which I've linked could use extra explanation, and some of the phrases just bugger my imagination. I've found a transcript of lyrics;[4] condensing the redundant portions:

Cuando me desperté,
y vi otro tío acostado
de espaldas a mi lado me dije "pavo éste quién es", (explain that phrase?) (ANSWER: "who is this dude?")

luego ya razoné,
la culpa es del alcohol,
debí mezclar ayer hasta volverme maricón. (They're all simple words, but the grammar loses me! Also, should suffixed pronouns be indexed for "volver"?) (...What do you mean by "indexed"? The grammar of which words do you question?)

Y que dirán de mí,
dirán que eres gay,
lo tendré que asumir, (I think this may be a somewhat broader usage)
no te apures rey, ("do not rush king?")
me hacen para tal para cual,
verás como sí, Stereosexual,

con mi novia no sé,
creo que se lo diré,
de forma gradual para que no le sienta mal

pero por el squash,
es mejor no volver,
no sea que un día en las duchas* no me pueda contener**. (*noun?) (**some other
meaning?) (yes, noun. "I couldn’t contain myself")

por otro lao, (presumably = lado)
por el lao de atrás,
no debe estar tan mal,
pero si es normal,
sí es tanto personal,
pruébalo y verás,

Cuando me había hecho a la idea
el varón se despertó,
y resultó ser una tía ("the man woke up and resulted to be a woman"; perhaps add "turn out" as a definition?) ("it turned out to be a prostitute")
con el pelo a lo Grace Jones
aunque ya se fotocopie
por delante y por detrás
a mi me sale más a cuenta
por un lado nada más.

是爱  让你略过漫长等待 我们只要现在相爱 幸福就来

这个世界唯一的你  是我拥有的奇蹟 对我说的一字一句  都是我们的秘密

I think it should be "обращение", which means the way you address someone, Anrede in German. From the verb обращаться (к), to address (verbally) Bogorm 20:32, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
