I need some help translating a sentence to as many Germanic languages as possible. I already posted it in other discussion, but it was about a comparison between Romance languages that I also want to do (with the same sentence): https://www.duolingo.com/comment/23652055

I really need help with this one, because English is the only germanic language that I really can speak. If you can help me translating the sentence to a germanic language (or to a romance language in the other discussion), I would be very pleased :)

ENGLISH: I am the son of my father and my mother.

SCOTS: A am the son o ma faither an ma mither.

FRISIAN: Ik bin de soan fan myn heit en myn mem.

DUTCH: Ik ben de zoon van mijn vader en mijn moeder.

AFRIKAANS: ???

GERMAN: Ich bin der Sohn meines Vaters und meiner Mutter.

YIDDISH: : איך בין די זון פון מיין טאטע און מאמע (Ikh bin di zeen fin maan tatte in mamme)

LOW SAXON: Ik bün de Jung van mien Vader un mien Moder.

SWISS GERMAN: ???

BAVARIAN: I bin da Sohn vo meim Voda und meina Muada.

LUXEMBOURGISH: Ech sinn de Jong vu mengem Papp a menger Mamm.

DANISH: Jeg er sønnen af min far og min mor.

NORWEGIAN: Jeg er sønnen til faren min og moren min.

SWEDISH: Jag är sonen till min far och min mor.

ICELANDIC: Ég er sonur föður míns og móður minnar.
