Sprekken zee Ingles?? - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Sprekken zee Ingles??
posted this in fantards

I got this in my inbox today. Could someone please translate? Is it German? Swedish?? I am so confused..

Hallo aus Dusseldorf,
Hi ich wolte sagen das ich wölfe über alles liebe und mir dein wolfsbild sehr gefallen hat super süßes bild du bist aber auch sehr schön eine echt süße frau

The thing is, it could be a legitimate e-mail that isnt fantarded at all and I don't know how to respond =P

I think this has to do with the fact that awhile ago my art was stolen and displayed on a German furry site with a link to my e-mail. It's still there..I don't really care cuz its not like anyone's claiming it as their own or anything..but jeeze they should put a notice "This artist does not speak anything other than english". =P

The word Dusseldorf sounds familiar.


Current Mood: curious curious

I have informed the members of the Illuminati. The time of revolution is at hand!

Altavista Babelfish says the general gist of the email is "I love your wolf picture, and you're a very sweet woman".

If you could get the actual translation... sounds like a nice letter to me!

Get Maggock to translate it? Either that or any of "Das neue Deutches" members. like BBF or Silber?

I've taken 3 highschool semesters of german and 1 college semester. But I'm horrible at it. I can make out parts of it.

"Hello from Dusseldorf" is the first part. Then it says I think something along the lines of I've always really liked wolves. Now I wish I'd paid more attention in class... anywho, the end says something about something being very pretty and then frau is the word for woman, but he could be talking about your artwork. I dunno, don't go by my word.

And Alta Vista's bablefish is definitely not a reliable translater from my experiences and by word of others too. It's more of a "this word equals this in english" so with the different grammer structures everything comes out really wierd.

Hallo aus Dusseldorf, (Hello from Dusseldorf)

Hi ich wolte sagen das ich wölfe über alles liebe und mir dein wolfsbild sehr gefallen hat
(I wish to say that I adore wolves and to me your wolf drawing is my favourite)
super süßes bild du bist aber auch sehr schön eine echt süße frau
(super sweet drawing. You are, though, also a very fine, beautiful, truly sweet woman.)

Sweet here could be either sweet or cute, I believe. I´m not sure. My German's pretty rusty overall, anyway, so no guarantees on the translation! ;)

Ok, time that a REAL German says something to this.
Actually, this translation is accurate. :P

Already mentioned that you could've asked me on fantards, but your subject line should say "Sprechen Sie Englisch?" ;)

I don't even know enough Spanish to know that that's how you spell English in Spanish. Ich spreche Deutsch ^_^
