Need help with a letter for an ESL student » answer
by mdjsmith1 (UN), 2017-09-07, 22:13  like dislike  Spam?  

I am a French teacher in an English language school. I have a new student who just moved from Denmark who does not speak much English nor any French. I want to write him an encouraging letter about French class. The French program I use uses gestures (like sign language) to help teach the language, which is what I'm referring to. I tried using Google Translate but I have no idea how accurate it is. If anyone who speaks Danish could help with this, it would be great!

English letter:

Dear Milo,

Welcome to Montcrest! I'm looking forward to having you in my French class!

Please join in whenever you can! Listen to the words and watch the gestures. When you begin to recognize the gestures, speak along with the class.

Do your best and you will learn a lot! I am always here to help.

Ms. Smith

Help with translating Danish song titles to English » answer

I have a small batch of Danish 78-rpm records.  I collect children's records only and I cannot determine if the records I have are for children or even suitable for children.  They were sent to me by a German person who doesn't speak Danish.  If you can help, I can email you JPGs of the record labels. I have just 6 records.

Jeg har det som blommen i et æg » answer
by DaianaK (UN), Last modified: 2016-11-24, 09:29  like dislike  Spam?  
Hello, I have just found out about this expression "Jeg har det som blommen i et æg" and it happens that I'm going back to Denmark after living in another country for a few months. Denmark is the place where I feel like home, and I'd like to write this to one of my Danish friends when I'll get to the airport in Cph, do you think it's correct? I'm still in a learning process of this language but I'd like to impress her. I tried looking it up on Google in both dnaish or english forums but everywhere it's just explained, never really used in a sentence so I can understand it better.

Gæt hvem der kommer tilbage i hyggelig Danmark? Jeg har det som blommen i et æg og har aldrig nogensinde haft det så godt som nu!! Vi ses på "Australian Night" i eftermiddag!

Or is there a better way of asking " guess who is back home?"

What do you think guys? Tak!

Hello there. I know is has been some time, since you wrote this, but I would like to give you my answer anyway:

You can use "jeg har det som blommen i et æg" in this sentence, though you could specify that it is in Denmark, otherwise the meaning is that you are feeling great whereever you are at the time writing the letter. So a possibility is: Jeg har det som blommen i et æg, når jeg er i Danmark.
"Gæt, hvem der kommer tilbage til hyggelige Danmark" would be a possibility with the other sentence.
Du er du og du duer » answer

Hello! I would like to understand this sentence from the children's song "Du er du og du duer". Mainly the word "Duer". What does it mean?
by MyWay55 (DK), 2016-09-24, 10:01  like dislike  Spam?  
"du" as a verb is something that works or what anyone is good for. So here it could be translated to: You are you and you work/you are good. A cute little wordplay on "du" as pronoun and "du" as verb.
Man vil hinanden - translation please  » answer

I am trying to help a friend with a book translation into English from Danish via Another language, but I think that her translation of this phrase is not quite right. She has 'we intend each other' but this doesn't make sense. I believe it to be 'we want each other' (literally) but assume that it has a more complex meaning? Any help in understanding what Man vil hinanden means would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.
by MyWay55 (DK), 2016-09-11, 17:37  like dislike  Spam?  
From this I would say you are right, though it doesn't necessarily have to have sexual meaning. It is more "we want each other", in the sense you want to get in a relationship with someone and the feeling is returned, or to be in a relationship, where you both work for the relationship to last.

I hope my answer helps you to get a better understanding of the expression.
Information about a change in the guidelines regarding delete votes » answer
by Paul (AT), 2016-06-27, 17:50  like dislike  Spam?  
The basic rule in GL 3 is "Always confirm the first correct posting!". So far, when there was no completely correct posting, and someone voted for a deletion, this delete vote was the first correct posting, so it had to be confirmed. However, most of the contributors understood this differently or didn't want to comply with it, for reasons I understand. In the last months this rule was challenged several times, which caused a lot of discussions. In the end I came to the conclusion that the vast majority of the community wants less strict delete rules. After discussing some text suggestions (forum: #846903), the following rule was accepted and is now effective:

+Always confirm the first correct posting! [...]
A [del] vote is considered a correct posting if no previous posting (input, vote or comment) contained...

skubbe du » answer
by Wiffle, 2015-12-14, 03:22  like dislike  Spam?  31.51.255...
In a TV program I was watching a boy suggests to a girl that they had arranged to meet.
She disagrees..... in the subtitles she says 'were we?'  but she actually says what i'm guessing is 'skubbe du'
Would this be like 'push off' as used colloquially in English i.e. don't be ridiculous.
Or am I miles off ??

Would really appreciate any help.

I've been thinking about it, and I can't get it quite right with what has been said in Danish. Maybe something like "skrub af"? Or something with "skulle". What TV program was it? Maybe that would help.

Ok it was series 1 episode 9 of The Bridge ..... but it is a Copenhagen scene (so presumably it would have been in Danish).....   a teen boy thinks he has been talking online to an old school girlfriend (he has actually been talking to criminal posing as her), then by chance he bumps into her in person and says 'Hey, we were supposed to meet later.'  she has no idea what he is speaking  about and says the "Skubbe Du" thing..... the translator has her reply as 'Were we?'  but I can't find anything in a Danish dictionary that seems likely, phonetically i thought the skubbe looked right.....but skulle is could?..... so maybe she said something like "should you?"..... i will have to look at it again and see exactly what he says to see if that fits.  I will report back when I have checked, thanks for your help so far. ;)  I liked 'The Killing' better but am hooked on Scandinoir.

Any help translating the text below is much appreciated.

Mann-Whitney's rangsumtest, 5% signifikansniveau, Type 2 fejlsrisiko udregnet pa forskellen imellem hyppighederne af behandlingseffekt og 95% sikkerhedsgraensevurdering.

De 48 patienter i undersogelsen fordelte sig med 25 patienter i IFA-gruppen og 23 i RIVA-gruppen.  Alders- og kønsfordeling samt komplikationshyppighed svarer til, hvad man har fundet ved tidligere undersogelser. Fordelingen af frakturtyper i de to grupper udviste ingen signifikant forskel. Typefordelingen fremgar af Tabel 1.  Hos en patient var røntgenbillederne bortkommet.
Smertescoring var signifikant forskelling I de to grupper (p< 0.01), idet vi fandt en median scoring i RIVA-gruppen pa 0 (spaendvidde 0-8) og i IFA-gruppen pa 3 (spaendvidde 0-7) (fig 2)
