On-line translators

Post by :FI:Genosse » Wed Sep 03, 2003 4:59 pm

Folks!

I´d like to have a list of all known (unknown) on-line translators posted in this corner of our BB. Who likes to support this idea?

Here´s the summary of the ones I use everyday ... JETZT! MAINTENANT! NOW!

Translates many languages, also many options from English to ...

I was amazed that it even translated the 'most great day" into 'geweldigste dag' and not into 'meest geweldige dag' a mistake many dutch seem to make lately.

Unfortunately I don't have all my links available anymore, they were lost a while ago in a 'mortal' HD crash.

I just used the translator Falcon suggested "Systran" to try to translate "Skipper" and it came out with "ÃÅ“berspringvorrichtung".

Unfortunately , when I translated this back from german to English it told me it meant "Jumping over device" :lol: :?

I speak some german and am going to continue you it next year at AS Level.

I normally just search google for a translater and try anyone that comes up first.

Skipper? Isn´t this colloquial English for a captain? I remember some German blokes on a sailing boat calling the captain "Skipper" ...

Darn Babylonian hubbub of voices! :?

The reason is...

Post by Skipper » Wed Aug 03, 2005 12:07 pm

Well the reason I picked it for my name was that it sounded cool-well I thought it did anyway ;) - and quite a few of the pilots/squadron leaders in the films I have watched are referred to as "Skipper".

I decided to do a bit of research on the subject and apparently the reason that RAF Squadron Leaders were referred to as "Skipper" was because of a South African Pilot called Adolf "Sailor" Mallan. His squadron refered to him as "Skipper" because he had worked as a deckhand on a Union Castle Steamship Line before entering service with the RAF late in 1935.

Her fought in the Battle of Britain and commanded No. 74 Squadron at Biggan Hill and the name seems to have stuck and been used by other RAF squadrons.

The main reason I picked it is because I am a large fan of the 1969 film Battle of Britain and my favourite character in it is Squadron Leader Skipper played by Robert Shaw. :D

He is based on Adolf "Sailor" Mallan who was quite an ace by the end of the war with 30 confirmed kills and 2 unconfirmed.

While I realise I'm not quite an ace just yet :( , I suppose I can only improve! :roll: :lol:
