voeding  #583360
by jozin-korsakov (BE), 2011-03-13, 20:19  Spam?  
"voor de uitbouw van Europa's kennisbasis en de voeding van de kennisketen" would make this sentence in English: "for developing Europe's knowledge base and the feeding of the knowledge chain". Je zou het ook kunnen vertalen als: "for developing Europe's knowledge base and for feeding the knowledge chain", wat ik persoonlijk een betere vertaling vind.
Ik heb heel wat online zoekwerk verricht om een juiste vertaling te vinden van het woord kennisketen omdat dit niet terug te vinden was in het gratis online Van Dale woordenboek, en ook niet via dat alle Nederlandstalige online woordenboeksites doorzoekt. Als je echter een zoekactie voor dit specifieke woord doet met (scroogle gebruikt google maar je blijft zelf anoniem) dan vond ik een voortreffelijke Engelse vertaling op de website van de universiteit van Utrecht: waar zij het dus naar "Knowledge Chain" vertalen.

When I read this online source for the word flink: , it came back with nearly 30 different translations D:

Could I ask for a native Dutch speakers' help in whittling down the right ones from the wrong ones (if there are any)?

flink  #523987

According to Van Dale, flink can be used in 4 different ways:
as adj/adv it has 3 different meanings:
1) stevig (solid, sturdy,...)
2) ruim, vrij groot (large, big,...)
3)sterk van karakter, ferm (morally strong, plucky,...)

Dear all,
I am looking for a translation for this sentence. I especially focus on the placement of the verb in the relative clause. Does it appear at the very end of the sentence like in German but unlike English?

Hey, so there were some dutch exchange students at my school a while back and they kept saying what sounded like noot ka (in english). Any idea what this means?
Yes, I have a idea.  #524570

gegeven de afbouw door » answer

Bij A NV is – gegeven de afbouw  door  beleggingsfonds R BV – de mogelijkheid ontstaan om een substantieel aandelenbelang te verwerven.

My attempt:

Given the reduction in size by the investment fund R BV, the possibility has arisen of acquiring a substantial stake in A NV.

Does this mean that R BV is reducing itself in size? Does it mean it's making sales of its holdings? Both seem to be true, but I'd like to know which they're specifying (if either), if you can tell from the Dutch.

English translation of Johan Huizinga's Homo Ludens » answer
by Starmat (UN), 2010-03-11, 13:40  Spam?  
The English translation of Huizinga's Homo Ludens seems to be missing some sentences. Can anyone tell me what the last sentence in this paragraph says? I have a rough idea but it'd be nice to see it in a smooth sounding sentence. I'll also copy the whole Dutch paragraph below.

Nevertheless, these same sophists were responsible for the milieu which gave rise to the Hellenic idea of education and culture. Greek knowledge and Greek science were not products of the school as we understand it. That is to say, they were not the by-products of an educational system designed to train the citizen for useful and profitable occupations. For the Greek, the treasures of the mind were the fruit of his leisure, and for the free man any time that was not claimed by State service, war or ritual counted as free time, so that...

Old Dutch  #583366
by jozin-korsakov (BE), 2011-03-13, 20:42  Spam?  
It might be difficult for online translation sites to translate this correctly because the text from the book was written in old Dutch. However, when removing the now obsolete N in the words "den", and "vrijen" makes it easier for Google to translate it: "In that environment now the leisure of the free man, the sophist as the first representative of a life of reflection and study, was traditionally at home." So it means that the sophist was at home in that environment: he felt at home in that environment (or milieu).
