どの様に私は自分の携帯電話に絵文字をダウンロードしますか。(この文を_に訳しなさい)

Welcome to the 35thDaily Translation Game! Try and translate this sentence into your language. As usual, I started us off with translating the English sentence into Japanese. You can choose any language you like of course (One you know or are learning), 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 Today's sentence I put together is...


How do I download emojis on my cell phone?


My last 34 games can be found here:

Life is priceless

My pleasant dream slowly faded away

Use your sword!

The gentle breeze blew away the fallen leaves.

He wiped away her tears.

My new car is expensive.

Today, the blue sky is beautiful!

The airplane is leaving the airport.

I must protect my own people!

The human race, will eventually die of civilization.

Cancer is pure evil.

Alright so very interesting game today. First is a fun fact.

Emoji is actually a word of Japanese origin! Here is how it came to be...

In Japanese, emoji is 絵文字. This comes from...

絵-(Picture/Drawing) "E"

文字-(Characther/Word/Letter) "Moji"

Most people already know emoji is a Japanese word, but many don't know the exact meaning! Also, in Japanese, the "e" is pronounced like "eh", so it's not "eemoji". Pretty cool, huh?

As for the plural of "emoji" I used "emojis". There seems to be an ongoing arguement about this, and I just got my answer here http://observer.com/2014/11/what-is-the-plural-of-emoji/

And yes, I know 様 isn't necessary to be in Kanji form, but I did it to save space. This is a pretty difficult one in some languages!


As always, If you submit a comment written in another language, like I did mine, please write it in the romanization so others can hear what it would feel like!

Requests are still open!

As for the Japanese native speakers out there... Im sorry.. I am still bad at determining to use に or で

Thanks as always Awesome Duolingo community!

Како да инсталирам emojis на мом телефону. :) I could not find the proper word in Serbian for the word "emojis", so I wrote it in English. When the answer to your question is Yes/No (Da/Ne), you'll start sentence with "Da li" . This question starts with the word "How/Kako", so you don't have to use "da li" in that context. Kako da instaliram... How to install.. Word "da" refers to "to" in this sentence. It is very often situation in Serbian language (in my opinion, it's not very good for the language itself) that we don't have the proper word (or if we have it, we don't use it) for the English words which are used on social networks.

"Emojis" is written in Serbian "Емоџис/Emodžis, but it's strange, because that isn't used by us.

However, popular social networks "Facebook", "Skype" etc. are written in Serbian "Фејсбук/Fejsbuk", "Скајп/Skajp" , because there's a principle: "Write as you speak and read as it is written"

e.g. Your name is Jack, so it's written in Serbian Џек/Džek, while in Croatian and many languages are written the same as in English, because there isn't our principle for them.

U pravu si, slažem se s tobom, ne mogu više da pohvatam sve te nove izraze. :) Ja prvi put čujem za taj izraz emodžis, zato sam i napisala na engleskom, jer ne znam zaista kako bih tu reč prevela na srpski. Kao i mnoge druge reči koje su se odomaćile u našem jeziku, reči koje prirodno nisu deo srpskog jezika, ali se često koriste u neformalnoj konverzaciji (npr. reči poput lajk, dislajk, smajli, dejt, aploud itd). Ali šta da se radi, meni se samo ne dopada to što se naš jezik mnogo amerikanizuje, da se tako izrazim. Pozdrav! :)

Hehe, razumem dobro kako ti je i slažem se takođe sa tobom. :) I ja prvi put čujem za taj izraz, ali sam se potrudio da napišem na srpskom da bi bilo prirodnije i pravilnije, mada nije bitno. Taj izraz je zapravo japanski, njegovo značenje je slično smajlima. Ni meni se iskreno ne dopada to, ali je takvo vreme došlo i mladi sve češće koriste, pa se polako navikavamo na takve reči :D Pozdrav! :)

Old Norse: Hversu legg ek neðan emojis á handtalara mínum?

Runic Norse (same sentence as above): ᛬ ᚼᚢᛂᚱᛋᚢ ᛬ ᛚᛂᚴ ᛬ ᛂᚴ ᛬ ᚾᛂᚦᛅᚾ ᛬ ᛂᛘᚢᛁᛋ ᛬ ᛅ ᛬ ᚼᛅᚾᛏᛅᛚᛅᚱᛅ ᛬ ᛘᛁᚾᚢᛘ ᛬

This is a tricky one for Old Norse taking into account technology. I didn't invent a neologism for emoji, but people in the Old Norse group I'm part of generated a word for mobile phone (handtalari, "hand speaker"). For download I used "lay down on my mobile phone"
