Agreed. "Bonjour" and "Salut" may not be interchangeable in French but "Hello" and "Hi" absolutely are in English.
Or literally 'good day' it just is used for good morning a lot because it's the first greeting of the day.
What is the word for parakeet in French ( also known as budgies, budgerigars)
This fascinates me. If I assume that the parrot only imitates a sound, berift of meaning, then I think that I would leave "bonjour" as it is in the english translation. And place it in double quotes. Contrairly, if a computer were speaking the sentence, I would translate "bonjour" to "hello". This because the computer is functioning at the level of meaning, whereas the parrot is, I believe, functioning at the level of sounds.
