Poems and fiction in English by a writer from Finland.
International pictures also included.
Some facts, too. Occasionally.
So lovely fishes....I so love those bright colors…very cute…I think I steel your Babel fish…I wish there could be a translator to translate Finnish…so funny translations I’ve red…I think it is just impossible to translate Finnish, but it seems to work at least with German and Swedish quite well…and I hope it works also with Spanish and French….at least I’ve already used it several times...:)
Go ahead, Kirsi, and steel!How do you translate from Finnish? Do you have some programme? Or with dictionary????
I like this bright and colorful school of fish too. It's very "Pop Art-ish" to me. As for translations, you and Kirsi are my translators for Finnish, aren't you? :)
I’ve tried some Finnish translators...don’t remember names....but it’s really impossible....you should try…its fun…oh and my dear American friends have tried to surprise me with Finnish...once Kelly used translator and I didn't understood any word...:))Sure Mick…anytime you need translator…
Googleta Finnish traslator...vai oliks se ehdä suomeks...en muista, mutta löysin kyllä itse muutaman...ihan huippu hauskaa , mutta ei siitä oo mitään hyötyä...:)
This is an old picture, Mick, about two years old(that's old for me!).Yes, Kirsi and I are human translators!Kokeillaan etsiä, Kirsi.
I tried the French translation and understood it, but partly because I speak English and Finnish. It's rather funny. And the fish are nice.
The texts look nice in other languages, although I don't understand a word:)
Interesting! Maybe I should have a try?
Yes, a pity it does not work for Finnish, nor Swedish (at least in my version).You can of course use it also as some help e.g. when preparing a text or to translate single words: http://babelfish.altavista.com/The translations by Babelfish are generally a good help to understand the meaning of a text, more or less, but the results are of course far from perfect.I discovered it already some years ago. The major purpose was to be able to send some short messages in Chinese to some friends. I think this is really the most impressive thing; Chinese is so different as a language in its logic, not mentioning the characters!
Liisa, do try!Yes, Peter, it's a pity Swedish and Finnish aren't included in Babel Fish. I looked up for a Finnish translator via google, found one ja the translation from Finnish to English was really poor. No use.But to understand the meaning of a text, that's in many cases enough. At least for me, for example it's possible to understand the texts HPY writes in French, if I use babel Fish.Chinese and Japanese are very visual languages. Beautiful to look at.
