Language practice thread 2

[<3] 祝你們情人節快乐! [<3]
[<3] Frohe Valentinsdag, alle! [<3]
[<3] Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! [<3]

情人節怎麼樣,你們?有沒有能和你們的伴侶或者好朋友會合? [:D]
Wie geht/ging Valentinsdag für euch? Habt ihr getroffen ihrer eure Partner oder enge Freunde?
How is/was Valentine's Day for you guys? Did you get to meet up with your partners or close friends?

那天在城裡我和我的好朋友享受了走走,談談哪。訪問大我們吃蛋糕了裡的園林了,也訪問日本的圖書館了。然后晚上在她住裡一起看辦動畫電影了。
Ich hatte einen schöner Tag mit einer guter Freundin von mir, herumlaufend und redend in der Stadt. Wir haben eine große chinesische Gartenkunst besucht, wo wir Kuchen gegessen haben, und einen japanischen Buchladen. Wir haben darauf einen Teil von einem anime Film im Abend zusammen angesehen, wo sie wohne.
I had a lovely day with a good friend of mine wandering around the city and talking. We visited a grand Chinese Garden, where we had cake, and a Japanese bookshop. We then in the evening watched part of an anime film together, where she lives.

Abends haben wir in ihrer Wohnung eine Folge von einem anime Film zusammen angesehen.
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

因为没有情人,所以情为我没太特殊。工作然后看了电视,欧洲冠军联赛。
Yīnwèi méiyǒu qíngrén, suǒyǐ qíng wèi wǒ méi tài tèshū. Gōngzuò ránhòu kànle diànshì, ōuzhōu guànjūn liánsài.

As I have no loved one, Valentine's day was not special for me. After work I watched TV, UEFA Champion's League.

有那麼少有配偶或者戀人的人嗎? 我發誓了,認識多人比那個。 [:'(]
yŏu nàme shăo yŏu peì'ŏu huòzhĕ liànrén de rén ma | wŏ fāshì le | rènshi duō rén bĭ nèige
Gibt's so wenig Leute, die ein/e Gatte/in oder ein/e Freund/in haben?? Ich hätte schwören können, dass ich mehr Leute als die kennen hätte.
Est-ce que y'a si peu de gens qu'ait un/e époux/se o un amour?? J'aurais juré que j'aie connu plus de gens que ça.
Tem tão pouca gente que tenha um/a cônjuge ou um amor?? Eu jurava que eu conhecia mais gente do que isso.
Oes cyn lleied o bobl sy priod neu gariad gynni hi?? Tynges i mod i'n nabod mwy o bobl na hyn.
An bheil cho beag de dhaoine an bheil céile no gaol aca?? Mhionnaich mi gun robh mi eòlach air bharrachd de dhaoine.
Are there so few people who have a spouse or love?? I could've sworn I knew of more people than that. [:'(]

Ich füge noch einmal etwas hinzu: Ich würde "Now this is ..." nicht wortwörtlich übersetzen, sondern eher mit etwas in Richtung "Wenn das nicht ... ist".
I'll add something else as well: I wouldn't translate "Now this is ..." word by word, but rather with something along the lines of "Wenn das nicht ... ist".

Außerdem kommt mir das "ne?" hier falsch vor. "Ne?" würde ich nur benutzen, um sicherzugehen, ob eine Tatsache, ein Zustand o.Ä. wirklich so ist, wie es scheint. "Ok?" oder "in Ordnung?" wären natürlicher klingende Alternativen, aber wenn es mehr wie eine Art Drohung klingen sollte, würde ich "verstanden?" vorschlagen oder sogar "Lad uns bloß zur Hochzeit ein!".
Aside from that, "ne?" doesn't feel right to me. I'd only use "ne?" to make sure if a fact, a state or the like really is as it seems. "Ok?" or "in Ordnung?" would be more natural sounding alternatives, but if this was supposed to sound more like a threat, I would have used "verstanden?" or even "Lad uns bloß zur Hochzeit ein!".
