I've been asked to help someone out by providing the phrase "Thanks and come back soon" in as many different languages as possible... I feel in somewhat of a dilemma - I can't post it as a job (I don't fancy getting 20 invoices at a minimum charge for 5 words), so, after a bit of racking my conscience I have decided to ask for help. I'm not sure myself what I mean by that - whether those who wish supply the phrase in a different language or provide a suggestion about a better way of getting it done. Any help at all is appreciated!

... I wouldn't invoice you for five words: my minimum charge is for a standard Italian page (1,500 keystrokes, or about 220 words).

Grazie e arrivederci presto/Grazie e torna presto,

Giles

Glad to help May 9, 2007

And I'll take care of the English version.

But seriously, why not post on the individual Kudoz language pairs?

Thanks... May 9, 2007

...to all those who've mailed me so far! In case anyone else needs to know - it's a sports event saying this to the people who watched the races...

there were no specific languages requested... May 9, 2007

...which was why I don't really know where to start on KudoZ. If I have a bit of time over later then I may well do so!

Good point... May 9, 2007

...in this case, yes. I must remember that performing favours isn't always as easy it appears to be (I got asked nicely at the end of a long day...)!

Bedankt en tot spoedig ziens

That is your sentence in Dutch. How's about giving me a WWA-entry?

Best wishes,
Margreet

Spanish version May 10, 2007

In Spanish would be:

Gracias y vuelve pronto

But, more freely, (and more common too), you can translate:

Gracias y hasta pronto
