I thought a few of you wouldn't mind a pick-me-up.

 

Euro-English

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations with the Germans, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy.

The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.

Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords containing "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten styl.

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

Por fin, los europeos tienen una lengua razonable. No necesitamos los otros, si tenemos esta.

Hmm... let's see if this comes even close to working.

 

中国拥有巨大的市场,如果你能得到它

English is almost as good, 'till all of us forget it.

 

Español es agradable a casi tantos oídos.

हिन्दी हजारों साल के लिए चारों ओर हो गया है।

 

أن العربية لديها إمكانات إذا كانوا جميعا يتحدثون هو نفسه.

Русский имеет в основном оставили глобальной игры.

 

Sons do português como espanhol, com uma pequena torção.

বাংলা আপনি সম্পূর্ণরূপে মিস করেছি বৃহত্তম ভাষা.

 

Français, la lingua franca réelle, allusion à le sort de notre langue.

Melayu adalah jenis yang kita mengabaikan 'sehingga ia terlalu lewat.

 

اردو کے گوگل کے ترجمہ کریں کہ انتخاب کے سوا، کیا کہنا زیادہ نہیں ہے.

、の言う本当の日本のを聞かせてに代わるものではありません

 

ایرانیان فقط ممکن است با تشکر از شما برای خواندن در این طولانی است.

Und Deutschen schütteln den Kopf über Ihre Ausbildung schief gehen.

 

Chinese has a huge market, if only you can get it.

Esperanto nur Paska ovo. Ĉiuj krom kelkaj forgesi ĝin.

 

Spanish is a pleasing tongue to almost as many ears.

Hindi has been around for thousands of years.

 

Arabic has potential, if they all spoke the same.

Russian has basically got out of the global game.

 

Portuguese sounds like Spanish, with a little twist.

Bengali is the biggest language you've completely missed.

 

French, the actual lingua franca, hints at our tongue's fate.

Malay is the kind that we neglect 'till it's too late.

 

Of Urdu, there's not much to say but Google Translate's choices

Are no substitute for, let's say, real Japanese voices.

 

Persians just might thank you for reading this long

As Germans shake their heads at your education gone wrong.

Edit:

"Branxanxanx" is gibberish.  It's pronounced [dubstep noises.]

Potato giblet branxanxanx? Is Google translate broken?

Edit: so I don't know what it means but branxanxanx is an awesome looking word. How do you pronounce it?

Sprechen Sie Hebräisch, Delightful?

 

I had to look up Hebräisch, but other than that I'm trying to stick with languages I don't have to use Translator for.

Actually, I was wondering...

 

Is there a list of sharders who can speak second/ third languages somewhere? If there isn't, maybe I'll start one.

There is, it's called Languages, and it's on this board somewhere.
