Eine Art Drohnung?? Nein, nein! Ich war allzu zwanglos, aber gar nicht drohend!
A threat! No, no! I was overly casual, but never threatening!
Ben “tehdit” demek istemedim, ama en uygun kelimeyi bilmedim.
I didn't mean "threat" but I didn't know the most suitable word.

"Don't you dare try not to invite us! [:P]". Mehr wie eine spielerische "Drohung" halt, nichts Ernstes.
More like a playful "threat", nothing serious.

Ouah ! Quand j'ai envoyé ma petite invitation de mariage, je ne m'attendais pas à ce qu'elle déclenche une telle polémique.
Wow! When I sent my little wedding invitation, I didn't expect it to spark such controversy.

¿De qué hablaron en estas programas de ciencia?
What did they talk about on these science shows?

Y por favor, no diga usted "de ciencia". [:P]
And please, don't say "about science".
De la science.
About science.

Mais à vrai dire, j'ai du mal à me rappeler toutes les émissions que j'ai vues.
But to be honest, I'm having trouble remembering all the shows I saw.

Ah, dans une émission, des scientifiques ont mis des caméras sur des animaux pour étudier leur comportement.
Oh, one show was about scientists outfitting animals with video cameras to study their behavior.

Je me suis surtout intéressé à une partie sur des chiens gardiens de troupeau en France.
I was particularly interested in a segment on livestock guardian dogs in France.

Un défenseur de l'environnement voulait utiliser les images pour démontrer l'utilité de ces chiens pour les bergers français.
A conservationist wanted to use the footage to convince French shepherds of guardian dogs' usefulness.

Le but ultime : promouvoir une méthode de protéger les moutons des loups sans tuer les loups.
The ultimate goal being to promote a way of protecting sheep from wolves without killing the wolves.

Ich weiß nicht warum, aber ich fange an, -g als [x~ç] in Wörtern wie Weg und Prag auszusprechen. Ich bin ja kein Deutscher, geschweige denn ein Nordländer.
I don't know why but I'm starting to pronounce -g as [x~ç] in words like Weg and Prag. I'm not even German, much less a Northerner.

Karena itu jauh lebih gampang [:D]
Because this is so much easier [:D]

Dan, maaf sa koreksi, kata yang benar itu 'Norddeutscher', bukan 'Nordländer'.

And it is 'Norddeutscher', not 'Nordländer'

Kalau di logat jerman utara itu /nɔːɾɔɪ̯t͡ʃɐ/. Kayaknya.
If you want to pronounce that like a northerner, it's something like /nɔːɾɔɪ̯t͡ʃɐ/.

I want to tell you a joke in Modenese (dialect of the Emilian language).

There were three very hungry vampires, the kind of vampires that will only drink a virgin's blood.

Un al dîṡ: "dai dai, counta gninta stêr chè a dscàrer, mè a vâg e quàl ch'a cât a cât".
One says: "come on, it's useless to stay here and talk, I'll just go and see what I can find".

He leaves running *WHEEEEEE* at the speed of sound and comes back after five minutes, with blood dripping from his mouth.

"Bein? Ě-t catê gninta?" "Sè" al dîṡ - "vdîv cla muntâgna là? Lè sàta a gh'è un vilâg', l'è pin ed żuvnôti!"
"So? Found anything?" "Yes" he says - "can you see that mountain over there? There's a village nearby, it's full of maidens!"

"Valà ca adêsa a vâg a zerchêr anca mè" al dîṡ al secànd, e anca ló al partés *GNAAAAAOUN* e al tǒrna indrě dàp děṡ minût, coun la bàca tóta insanguinêda.
"Well then it's my turn to go look for blood" says the second, and he too leaves running *WHEEEEE* and comes back after ten minutes, his mouth covered in blood.

"Sócia ragâz mo'c bvûda! Vdîv cla muntâgna là?" "Oi" "Bein, lè sàta, da cl'êtra pêrt, a gh'è un êter vilâg', tót pin ed ragazêli mâi tuchêdi!"
"Wow, what a drink! Can you see that mountain?" "Yep" "Well, on the other side of it there is another village, full of untouched girls!"

"Vâca bein adêsa a vâg a bàver anca mè" al dîṡ al těrz. Al partés in svělt *GNAAAAAAAOUN* e dàp gnanc dû minût l'è bêle turnê indrě, coun tóta la ghégna pîna 'd sanghev dapartót.
"Well I really need to go drink myself" says the third one. He leaves as fast as the other ones *WHEEEEEEEE* but after less than two minutes he's already back, his face completely covered in blood everywhere.

"Bein mo indù ě-t e-stê da catêr acsè bein?" i gh'e-dmanden chi êter.
"Where the heck did you go to find that much blood?" the others ask.

"Vdîv cla muntâgna là?" al dmanda. "Oi." "Ecco, mè an l'ò mìa vésta."
"Can you see that mountain?" he asks. "Yeah." "Well, I didn't see it."

Cuando quiero escribir en japonés en mi computadora, necesito que seleccionar un icono que se parece la bandera estadounidense cerca de la parte superior de mi pantalla.
When I want to type in Japanese, I have to select an icon that looks like the American flag near the top of my screen.

Cuando lo hago, un menú aparece, y puedo seleccionar un icono con el carácter de hiragana para "a".
When I do that, a menu appears, and I can select an icon with the hiragana character for "a".

Entonces, puedo usar mi teclado inglés para escribir en japonés. Mi computadora convierte letras latinas a hiragana, katakana, o kanji. Puedo seleccionar una de opciones varias generalmente.
Then, I can use my English keyboard to write in Japanese. My computer converts Latin letters into hiragana, katakana, or kanji. I can usually select one of several options.

Por ejemplo, cuando escribir "hito", puedo seleccionar "ひと", "ヒト", o "人".
For example, when I write "hito", I can select "ひと", "ヒト", or "人".

Supongo que esta función es probablemente un "IME", o algo similar.
