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 http://www.proz.com/h.php3?id=1755 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.
