Translate Me


¿Habla usted español?
Parlez-vous le français?
Möchten Sie mich verstehen?
私は非常におかしいです。

I just couldn't call myself a Linguist with an English-only blog. As a lover of language and culture, I felt sad that I couldn't share with everyone. But today the rain clouds of sadness parted, revealing a beautiful sunny day in the form of a lovely little java script.

I am very happy to announce that "they mostly come out at night... mostly" is now available in nine languages. With a simple click of a national flag button (located above the link-up) you will be LIVE in Your Language. Now that I can call myself a Linguist again, I would like to mention that I would never choose to represent languages with national flags. Not very accurate. I guess majority speaks with this one. Sorry to all the minority languages of these countries not represented here.


I would like welcome my friends of the world and apologize now for any inappropriate translation.

Y Mauritchio, lo siento que mi español es tan malo y por favor mandes más mangoes. Gracias.

Nicely done. You need your own website as well Lisa, for resume, headshot, photos of hat collection, et al.

lisabettany.com is available.

I do have a rather large hat collection, et al, AKA in need of more closet space.

The truth is that at this very moment I am secretly co-creating a web site with greater designs than shameless promotion of my hats. It will be revealed in due time.
