This is sort of for a project, but it's mainly for my own interest ^^ lol
Could someone translate 'Love is a language the deaf can hear and the blind can see.' into french?

Francis - I am so interested in being able to learn french, I want to live there one day. Would you be able to give me some basics?

"Hello"

"My name is..."

"The weather is..."

I think that's just about enough for now. Of course, if you are interested in chinese, I do not mind mutual helping.

"Hello" is usually translated "salut" but only between friends.

Dont translate literaly "my name is..". Say "Je m'appelle..."

Ways of speaking about weather are not the same in French than in English.

Finish your sentence I'll translate it...

just found out what it means Francis

this is verbatim from my on line translator

"Love is a language which the deaf can hear and that the blind persons can see"

Which makes sense!

Hi, Steve!

Instead of looking on your on-line translator, you could read as well the first question of this thread...

But still, it makes sense.

The sentence (for the weather now) is "The weather is very cold."

Thank you for your help in this - its very kind of you. I just wish I could actually hear someone say it outloud so I know I am pronouncing it correctly. I said "Je m'appelle" as "Jam apple" Rolling Eyes That's just gotta be wrong, coming from me.

"The weather is cold" = il fait froid (pronounce: "eel feh frwa")
Je m'appelle" = "ju mapel" ("u"as in "summer")

I have a poodle, and I'd like to put this on his collar in French: "Sweetest dog in Georgia." Could somebody please translate that for me?
