\"In the name of...\" is the working title for a series of benefit CDs that will feature independent musical artists from around the world. The cover art for these CDs and other promotional materials will use six words - peace, freedom, justice, love, humanity and understanding - in different languages as a background. Some initial work has been done using various online translation utilities. I would like to have that work checked as well as get additions in other languages. More information and the table of translations is at benefit language list. Contact information is provided on the page as well.

Thanks for any and all help,
Andy

Icelandic version not OK Oct 20, 2002

Love and peace man!



As it has been pointed out to me that the word \"humanity\" should express \"love for all people\" I have to make amendments to my first reply. \"Humanity\" has two meanings in Icelandic as in many other languages and since it should express \"love for all people\" the Icelandic word should be \"manngæska\" instead of \"mannkyn\".

Better late than never, and this correction is hereby submitted.



Best,

JRK

JUSTICE= DREPTATE;

FREEDOM= LIBERTATE;

PEACE= PACE;

LOVE= DRAGOSTE;

HUMANITY= OMENIRE/ UMANITATE;

UNDERSTANDING= INTELEGERE.



Good luck!

This is what it should say:

justice =retfærdighed

love = kærlighed

humanity = medmenneskelighed

understanding = forståelse



Best of luck with the project!

Hungarian is OK, some others are not Oct 21, 2002

The Hungarian words are OK.

Some comments on other languages:

The Serbian and Croatian word in the table (Nezavisnost) means \"independence\". \"Freedom\" is \"sloboda\"

Several Czech words are incorrect: \"clenstvi\" means \"membership\". \"Freedom\" should be \"svoboda\". \"klid\" is more like \"calmness\". The word you would need for peace is \"mír\". \"Amor\" means love, but not in Czech. The right word is \"Láska\".
