Here is a link to another thread that RealAnastasia started. I posted some translations of English to Spanish and Spanish to English for our Spanish-speaking members.
If anyone would like me to provide more, just PM me or post it here or there.

Hello!

I'm kind of new here, but I just want to say that I speak French, too.

I am not sure how good these translators are. I am already familiar with altavista. I tried a brief passage from my opera libretto. I find the results confusing at best. Here is my experiment.

Here's the original:

Совсем не так дорогая!
Мужик должен думать, что Вы Ирина.
Это наша приманка для него.
Не подведи!
Смейся как настоящая великая княжна!

Here's how altavista translated it:

Entirely so not expensive!
Peasant must think that you Irina.
This is our bait for it.
Do not bring!
Laugh as real great princess!

Here's how online-translator handled the passage:

At all so dear!
The muzhik should think, that Vy Irina.
It is our bait for it.
Do not bring!
Be dared as present great княжна!

And here is a human translation of the same passage:

Not at all like that, darling!
The peasant must think you are Irina.
That’s how we lurred him to come here.
So don’t spoil it for us!
Laugh like a “real” grand-duchess!

I can help with French, German and Swedish translation (and in real cases of emergency with Czech, although my Czech is extremely basic, but I could perhaps ask people, i.e. Czech speakers, I know for help, should the need arise). Those computer translation things are usually not very good. A human is still a great deal better.

In this regard, if some kind person could do me a favour and translate even a few of the inscriptions on the tombs of the horses in that fantastic thread about the Horse Tombs of the Tsars I would be very happy, as I cannot understand Russian.

Hello,
A comment from a user in another thread gave me the idea for this thread. Since so many users are now coming here who do not speak English well or as a first language, they may have trouble understanding everything in here. SO, Please use this thread to ASK for help, as I am certain that there are many members who can translate the English for you.

I know for a fact that there are excellent people who can translate what you want to understand into Spanish, French, German, Russian and Japanese at the very least. So Please dont be SHY, ask for help here in understanding the posts if you do not understand the English!!
