Dutch to English translations [PRO]
Dutch term or phrase: ymer
Hun drikker en portion ymer hver dag.
This question was posted by ProZ Eng-Bulgarian moderator on behalf of the asker. She requested a translation to Bulgarian, but there is only 1 memeber in Dutch-Bulgarian subcommunity. Thus she will probably appreciate English translation of the term too. If you can provide assistance, please go to and post your answer. Thank you.

This is Danish, not Dutch. The phrase translates as "They drink a portion of "ymer" every day." Ymer is a milk product in between yoghurt and cottage cheese, comparable to the Italian mascarpone, but sour tasting. I haven't found a translation for the word, so I would leave it as is. In Dutch and Belgian stores you find it under that name, ymer.

Hope I could be of any help.
