Maliyana, I understand you just fine. I don't think your english is bad at all I love talking with people from all over the world.

A2K is a wonderful place to find information and to make friends at the same time. Our community just keeps on growing and it's so very nice to see more and more people from different parts of the world come in and join us.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

How is the weather in your part of the world today? We had lots of rain lately, but the sun finally came out today. It's a little bit chilly outside, but the sun is shining and I'm very happy about that.

Yeah, we had lots of rain as well, but the sun came out for a bit today and it's suppose to be pretty nice and sunny the next three days. I'm looking forward to that for sure.

It's been a long day and night, so I'm off to get some sleep and I hope to see you soon :-D

Sure, I am glad to do it ,but how? What can I do for you ?

Books ? but there is not any book about it . even have, I can speak for certain because it is not so complex but just a another speakaccent about chinese , and it is not far away from putonghua .

The most different between Putonghua and Henahua(the language accent that Henanese speak, ' hua ' in chinese mean ' language') , Putonghua is not an ancient language , so certainly, it does not contern much culture , conversely Henanhua has a long history , and it has excellent civilization .

Please believe, it's very easy to speak Henanese(Henanhua) if you have learnt Chinese Putonghua , for Henanhua is just an accent among lots of other province's accents.

But the speeking and pronounce is much different between some dialects , some difference are huge (exampled on prior text ). Some person even said the difference is larger than that between French and Italian , but I think it's just a joke .

Fortunately , I grow up in the central of china , haha , in the dormitory when I was in college, my friend telephone home or their classmate in senior high school times, they speak with their dialect , mostly person can't listen even a word ; but others can listen nearly clearly, including me .

The Chinese writing_language , is same , only accent is not, the accent is far away differfnt ,but the writing-language is same.

My foolish friend , to tell you , dont you know , where is the biggest different between chinese (language) and other languages inthe world ( including English) ?

picture----->pictograph------>oracle bone (early chinese language )------------>original chinese language (now used in taiwan )

but others is not picture language , the are letters languages , I think they belong to digital language . If the language that in accent is far away differrent between regions , so we can say , they are different language . But never in Chinese .

So , I cant do anything . For the writing is just the same. I cant fly because I dont have wings . Its none of my business .

Digital language! Thanks. That is a new thought. Not sure you are right, but I'll think about it.

What is Taiwanese? The official language is Mandarin, of which there are two main forms in character writing. The simplified and the traditional Chinese character system. Is this what you are looking for (because unless I am mistaken even if one is to write the characters, your computer needs to be equipped which the ability to read them). Perhaps as Taiwan uses the traditional characters and China the simplified, this was your reason for asking a Taiwanese to translate.

Or are you looking for Romanized translations, there are several systems of this too. Wales-Giles/Hanyu Pinyin and half a dozen others.

Or were you looking for a translation into Taiwanese, which might be one of the popular Fujian dialects spoken here like Min Nan and Hakka?

Or perhaps you were looking for the Aboriginal language translations of Taiwan, which have 9 major tribes and languages.

Anyway, I read through the thread and couldn't find the actual translations you are asking for. If you are interested, Ill help out. Post them again being a bit more clear on what you need in translation.

I would have posted sooner, but until I heard you need this for some cartoons thought you were playing on obvious Chinese/Taiwanese differences to get a rise.
