View Full Version : Italian fans

C'è qualche fans italiano di questo fantastico gioco?.
Mi piacerebbe creare in questo topic una piccola community italiana di Grim Fandango dove magari qualcuno che sa l'inglese potrebbe tradurre le eventuali notizie, o anche solo per parlare di questo gioco.
Spero davvero che ci sia qualcuno interessato. Ciao

This is the translation version from freetranslation.com:
There it is some Italian fans of this fantastic game?. It would please to create me in this topic a small Italian community of Grim Fandango where even if someone that knows the English could translate the eventual news, or also alone to talk about this game. I hope really that it someone is us interested. Bye

Next time...put it in english... (Translation):
Tradurre la frase il prossimo tempo

Maybe this is better:

"Are there any italian fans of this fantastic game?
I would like to create a little Grim Fandango italian community on this topic ( I guess he/she meant to say forum) in wich someone who knew english could translate the news (topics?) or at least to talk about the game.
I'm truly looking forward for someone interested. Bye"

He/she doesn't know english therefore is asking for help to translate from english to italian. Since most of the internet content is in english it's not easy for the people to integrate to theses forums. And that is a shame.

Mnk: Come vai? Ho ricercato la web per pagine italiane sul Grim Fandango ma senza fortuna. Prova gli Strumenti Per Le Lingue del Google per tradurre il forum. Questo site è solo per inglese parlante e la maggiore parte degli aderenti occultano le sue ubicazione. Scusi.
Non è facile la tua situazione. Da vero lo so.

¡Buona fortuna!

^I tried translating it...that was really the only translation service that I knew of.

Legowar> Yes, but after the translation, you have to interpret and correct it yourself so that people can fully understand what it is about. ;)

Grim-comician: Where did you get those lines from your avatar?
Are they from someone in particular?

Heh, I just saw it on another member in another forum, so I just borrowed it to spread the message. Grammar is good! You're free to use it, too. ;)

I want to thank elbiolin for its interest to my situation and for the link that you have myself indicating. now I am traducendo Italian with freetraslation, also this was an useful advice, my English will be not perfect (like your Italian) I hope at least that itself understand.

Your welcome, Mnk!
Many people around here - including me, of course - aren't english speakers.
About my italian: it sucks! But I know an insult or two!!!
I should blame my grandmother for that. She used to sing me those songs that ...
Just kidding!. Only clean songs.

04-16-2007, 02:35 PM
Looool, c'mon, c'mon, say some insult!

(yeah, I'm still celebrating our victory at the World Cup Championshio of soccer!!!! CAMPIONI DEL MONDO! CAMPIONI DEL MONDO! ABBRACCIAMOCI FORTE, E VOGLIAMOCI TANTO BENE!)

A thing:online translations from online traslators aren't good: they just suck.

Okay, good to know that I need to learn Italian. Why would any person from another ethnic background be expected to learn English?

04-17-2007, 05:12 PM
Because nowadays the English is an international language which is in fact spoken in all the world.

04-17-2007, 11:43 PM
so then...what's the problem...if everyone else is learning it...

04-18-2007, 08:08 AM
It's true that the English is our current lingua franca, but it does pay to learn other languages as well. I need to learn Russian so I can speak to my grand mother, or Japanese because I'd like to visit Japan someday and watch raw anime episodes.

It's also a lot of fun to learn other languages, and I think it broadens one's view of the world. In my opinion, German is the most beautiful language in the world, so I'm studying it.

And to be honest, I think it's pretty ignorant to expect that everyone in the world can speak English (generally speaking, not in this thread). I'm not saying that you should then go and learn their language instead, but it's annoying when people just assume that they can use English everywhere. My parents, for example, don't speak English.

Then again, on a message board such as this, English is the language that is used, so it's polite to stick to it. I wouldn't go to a Spanish forum and expect them to speak Finnish, for instance.

@Mnk: Ciao Mnk! Anche io sono italiano! Purtroppo non ci sono community italiane interamente dedicate a questo capolavoro. Questo, però, è un bellissimo luogo dove la discussioni sul gioco sono ancora aperte e vivaci, nonostante non ci siano più news da tempo.
Se ti serve una mano con l'inglese, chiedimi pure ;). Ciao!

I was saying I can translate from english to italian for him. There aren't italian community fully dedicated to this game (shame! shame!). This place is the best for discussions and stuff related to Grim Fandango. There's always something to read/talk/know about. Always a pleasure to come back.
