I am looking to find out whether the following translated copy in Serbian would be perfectly acceptable for residents of Montenegro as well, or whether you would recommend a transcription into latin alphabet:
Sample:
У случају гутања
• Одмах назовите центар за помоћ код отровања или лекара за савет.
• Нека вам неко помогне да попијете чашу воде ако можете да гутате.
• Не изазивајте повраћање ако вам то није саветовао центар за помоћ код отровања или лекар.
• Не стављајте ништа у уста унесрећеном у несвести.
Док зовете центар за помоћ код отровања или лекара или кад идете по хитну помоћ, имајте код себе кутију или налепницу производа.

Thank you all in advance for your input.

Complex topic Oct 6, 2007

Hi, it is complex to answer you that. Maybe some serbians or montenegrins will inform you better than me. First time I went to Podgorica ten years ago, some of my relatives insisted me to learn serbian first on cirillic and after on latin alphabet. Now, after referendum and nationalism going up they said me to forget cirillic alphabet.... so, I supose it will depends , as always, to who is going this translation....
pozdrav¡¡
Ana

Not perfect Oct 7, 2007

It is good, but not perfect. While in Serbia people speak ekavian varian, in Montenegro they speak "ijekavian". Therefore "lekara" would be "ljekara", or "savetovati" would be "savjetovati",....

not good at all, sorry Oct 8, 2007

As Nataša said, I'd add that the translation "per se" is not fluent. There's also a mistake with the word "otrovanja", and a heaviness in expression.
