Hello Angus -
You may be right, if a person really wants to do a perfect
translation....but many times I write email in Danish, and I know I make
mistakes...but it doesn't matter, just as long as we understand each other.

So, English is our SW List's "first language", but people are welcome to
write in another second language if they want to - at the end.

Best wishes - Valerie


>>>>Danish Translation:

Davs Angus!
Det er meget muligt at du har ret, hvis man virkelig vil skrive et perfect
oversaettelse...men mange gange skriver jeg email paa dansk, og jeg ved
godt jeg laver fejl...men det betyder ikke noget, hvis man kan forstaar
hinanden.

Saa, engelsk er vores SW Lists "foerste sprog", men folk er velkommen til
at skrive paa et andet sprog hvis de vil...til sidst.

Venlig hilsen - Valerie :-))))

Val ;-)
