This thread is part of the Translator playground: a place for translators to have fun, to network, to learn, and to hone their translation or linguistic skills. See the announcement here.

Need a quick break from work? In this forum translators and language professionals can share quotes about translation, tongue twisters and word plays, translation challenges, etc.

All are welcome to participate and to add new items to this and the other areas of the Translator playground; have fun with it! If you need help or would like to propose an addition to the Translator playground, contact site staff through the online support system.

Greetings, Bryan!

I hope that everything will fit now / will fall into place.

Best regards
from the "dammal" (most likely a reference to his name or nickname)

Als Hamburgerin musste ich bei Nicoles Vorschlag wirklich lachen .... vielleicht sollten wir die Sprachenpaare Deutsch-Bayrisch und Deutsch-Hamburgisch (und was es sonst noch so alles gibt) aufnehmen ...icon_smile.gif

Schön, dass auch immer mal wieder so etwas auf proz.com auftaucht - wo es sonst schon nicht so viel zu lachen gibt!
