Dutch Translations » answer
by charlyr (UN), 2012-02-17, 13:33  Spam?  
There are some key features of the Dutch language that make the Dutch translation quite simple and easy. The Dutch, like the English language is Germanic in origin, most European Languages are Latin based. Actually Dutch is closer to German, and English is said to be in the middle of these two Languages, keeping half of the features of both

The Dutch also used a variant of the Latin alphabet, like English and most major European languages. Grammatically speaking Dutch tends more to Germany than to English, although the Dutch do not have some of the most important grammatical features of Germany (such as using the same case). Holland uses the verbs essentially the same way to German. Despite leaning closer to Germany in recent years the Dutch language has been simplified and has begun to take more features and...

stookvloeistof » answer
by kellytree (UN), 2011-12-06, 21:02  Spam?  
I came across this word and would like to know what it actually means.

From what I understand it should be something like "lighter fluid" or maybe " flammable liquid"

Ook het oude opleidingscentrum
(BOC) is nog in gebruik, waar het volgende aan brandblussers en -stoffen is verbruikt:
1400 CO2-blussers, 300 sproeischuimblussers, 3.000 liter +stookvloeistof + en 1.500 kuub aan palletshout.

Thanks in advance

ik hoop (dat) ik vandaag nog gewoon overleef » answer
by katipotati (UN), 2011-11-14, 01:34  Spam?  
Could you please provide me with a translation of the quote, and the context it can be used in?
Does the "dat" need to be there or can it be left out and still make sense?
I have a fair idea of what it means, I just want to be sure

No you can't remove the 'dat', that would sound strange. It says: "I hope that I will just/still survive today" I don't know about what context it is used in.

This conversation happened in dutch under a facebook photo my friend was tagged in. We have our suspicions about what is said but my dutch is not good enough to know for sure! I have put surname instead of the persons last name.

Can anybody help translate this?

The conversation:

da's toch geen echte, die op je arm, he meneer surname?!
nope, stift (: maar ik had er bijna eentje haha :P
Oh oh oh. Gekke jongen.

Hahaha says something like:
- That's not a real one on your arm, is it?
- No, it's pencil/marker (: But I almost had one, haha :-p
- Oh oh, you crazy boy
- Those are big cheeses!!
- What good are candles and glasses, if the owl doesn't want to see

Not sure what is meant, now I'm really curious about what is in the picture. I guess somebody drew a tattoo on their arm?

Hi there. Please could somebody help find the translation for 'remember me' in Dutch. I seem to be getting conflicting results everywhere I look! Thanks in advance.

If you want to translate it exactly it would be 'herinner mij'. It depends on the context that you are using it in though.'Herinner mij' is mostly used when you want to say for example '(help me remember) remember me to buy milk' the translation of this is 'herinner mij om melk te kopen'

If you are trying to say the shorter version of 'Can you still remember me?'  which is 'remember me?'
you can say 'herinner je mij nog?' or the shorter version 'herinner je mij?'

If you are trying to say: goodbye, don't forget me, remember me
In this context, it would be most appropriate to use 'don't forget me --> vergeet mij niet'

Also, if you search this matter in Google it will give you 'Weet je nog me' which is incorrect

depends...
dien could be "your(s)", sometimes also "the" or "that"
menneke= (little) man, guy

so maybe
"to/on your man. To my darling"
