I would appreciate it if someone could translate this small phrase in dutch.
the context is the following:
i played a game which i enjoyed very much but it ended too early and i want to say 'I want more' in dutch.
it is not to be used for professional reasons.
thanks!

This is the most literally translation.

Post it as a KudoZ question anyway Jun 28, 2011

Think of all the nuances "I want more" can have. Think of the possible connotations, both in English and Dutch.

Cheers,
Gerard

depends on what the English actually means Jun 28, 2011

I suggest posting the phrase on Greek-English Kudoz where you can explain exactly what you mean in Greek. Then post the English equivalent on En-Nl to get the most accurate translation into Dutch. Unless this is too much of a mountain-out-of-a-molehill' suggestion.

Wouldn't posting a Greek-Dutch Kudoz question be more efficient? And error safe?

For Greek>Dutch there are 3 Proz members and a further 19 registered non-members, who have earned a total of 38 Kudoz points in this pair between them. Greek>English>Dutch would almost certainly get a faster response, and quite possibly a better result.
