BeBee Comments in Home Languages

BeBee Comments in Home Languages

I am pleasantly surprised every time I receive a comment on a post in my home language. Perhaps others would also like a remark in their home language every so often. Below are four basic English comments, with the foreign translations following in sequence. 

Of course, if you want to give a more lengthy comment, there is Google Translate, which may not always pick up the correct colloquialisms, but it's probably good for basic translations. 

If anything below is incorrect or amiss, please let me know so I can edit. On the last phrase - even if we all live far apart, isn't an invitation for coffee a global gesture of friendship?


FOUR BASIC ENGLISH COMMENTS

Thank you.

Very good post.

I agree with you.

Baie goeie pos @Gert Scholtz. I love this idea of commenting in the authors native language and then perhaps complete the comment in English. A great way of opening our mind to new languages :)

#44 @Lada 🏡 Prkic, Pokazalo se da su mješanci neretko najbolji, najlepši i najuspešniji, a evo i labavih dokaza :-)

@Milos Djukic I have now updated the post and included Serbian as well - which as you mentioned is very close to Croatian. The only phrase that seems to differ is the invitation for coffee:) Many thanks for your comment stream to the post, Milos!

#43 To mi drago čuti. I ja sam "mješavina" još nekoliko narodnosti. Međutim, kako se pokazalo, nije lako biti mješanac na ovim prostorima, :-(
