今日は金曜日です, 私たちはパーティーに行きます!

    The next daily translation game! Try and translate this sentence into your language! I tried to make today's sentence a bit themed or relevant "Today is friday, we are going to a party!" Above, as usual, I started us out by translating the sentence into Japanese. You can choose any language you like of course, and is not limited to duolingo languages! You can also translate it into 2 or more languages if you are up for the challange! The purpose of this game is for good practice, and of course fun. It will also be cool seing this sentence in other languages, and we can help each other out if we make a mistake, or just learn something new! :D

    My last 3 games can be found....

    Here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/11183337

    And here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/11133244

    Next time I might let someone else have a chance at Japanese, but you can still provide your translation below!

      Good job. Arabic looks so hard to read and to detailed for me, haha.

            God I find arabic writing to be so beautiful! But it looks so small, detailed, and complex! Do elderly people or people with bad sight ever have a hard time reading it?

              Yeah, I have to strain my eyes. XD When I zoom in the screen a good amount (140%) I can read it though. Im just not trained in the Arabic eye :P

                heh, it's not that small in print. it just looks smaller on web browsers because even though individual arabic letters are the same size, arabic fonts are coded to "push" individual letters closer together to keep strings of uninterrupted letters continuous.

                          I think this should be "Hodiaŭ estas vendredo, ni iros al festo". No accusative there due to "al", "iri" instead of "fari" and "partio" is a political party.

                          I disagree with the consensus that this is the correct translation. I interpret the second clause of the Japanese sentence as subordinate to the first, which could either be translated as "Wir gehen nach eine Party, seit heute Frietag sein.", or "Seit heute Frietag ist, wir gehen zu einer Party." I think the second sentence emphasizes the more important subject, so I choose that one.

                          Let's say they're just relative clauses, though. You'd still need to pay attention to the word order, and conjugate the verbs correctly: "Heute Frietag ist, wir zu einer Party gehen."

                          I know that was a heavily authoritative explanation, but being brand new to German, I'd highly appreciate if someone could correct my mistakes. Thanks.

                          Heute ist Freitag,wir gehen zu einer Party. Today is Friday,we are going to a party.

                          Or do you mean this? Da heute Freitag ist,gehen wir zu einer Party. Because today is Friday,we are going to a party.

                          Although I do agree your sentence makes more sense than mine, the Japanese sentence does not contain 'because' so I did not put 'weil' in my sentence.

                                  By the way, If you can not read Japanese and you want to know how my sentence I put together sounds, here it is in English.

                                  "Kyou ha(wa) kinyoubi desu, Watash(i)tachi ha(wa) paatii ni ikimas(u)!"

                                  If you are not experienced in Japanese, I put (wa) next to ha because even though it is the characther for ha it pronounced wa as a particle. I also put (i) in parantheses because it is usually ommited in speach

                                  Also - ikimas(u) - the u is not normally pronounced!

                                    I agree, but パーティー would have elongated vowels so the sentence would sound more like "Kyou wa kinyoubi desu, watashitachi wa paatii ni ikimasu.

                                      です is not a conjunction by itself, so you need to end the first clause with ですから or ですので in order to maintain the polite form of the sentence.

                                                Yeah, Ajau means Prince/Ruler in Mayan, and I might soon be cooperating with another user to teach some yucatec here, along with my Nahuatl course.

                                                By the way, I'm fairly certain that there is a kanji for (tachi), the plural word. It looks like week, but it doesn't have the moon thing around the center and there is a sheep instead of mouth below the earth part. That sounded really weird but I don't know how to explain it.

                                                  Haha, yeah it does have a Kanji, but I really don't like using it. And I totally got what you where saying, trying to explain through radicals. A japanese friend told me using the Kanji of tachi makes it sound kinda serious and I just thought the situation was a bit to formal.

                                                  Direct Translation into Korean would be: "오늘은 금요일입니다, 우리들은 파티에 갑니다." But since the sentence feels little bit weird to me, so another version could be "今日は金曜日ですので、私達はパーティーにいきます。" Which means, Since today is Friday, we are going to the party, and in Korean, "오늘은 금요일이기 때문에, 우리들은 파티에 갑니다."

                                                    Haha, I really don't like using the Kanji 達. Really? That is funny because to me " Since today is Friday, we are going to the party" sounds a bit weird to me XD Thank you so much for your alterfications on my sentence and the Korean translations.

                                                      I was wondering if you could transliterate that to English it would be great. I know that the first two mean today, but I don't know how to say it. I know that the next one is shi and it means "is". Then it's saying the day of the week, using a character for "5" for Friday. Then it says Wo men which means "we" and I don't know the rest. So could someone spell it in English too? Thanks.

                                                      Sure, with PinYin transliteration it's: jīntīan shì xīngqīwǔ, wǒmen qù paìduì. The tones I may not have 100% correct though.

                                                                The first one: "I dag är (det) fredag, vi åker till en fest!" = Today is Friday, we are going to a party!

                                                                In the first sentence 'we are going' is not a future form but present.

Keep in mind that while the vowels are written in English with letters (a/e/i/o/u), in Hebrew the reader often has to know the right vowels himself ( that type of orthography is called "Abjad") - all this cause Hebrew to be a word-saving language :)

If Irish passed incubation, why not Lakota? The preservation and infrastructure for proliferation have existed for over a decade now.
