Introduction for Alderaan8

Hi, my name is Bryan and I am a thirty-something professional translator, linguist and social media moderator. My main working language is French so I do tend to make occasional spelling or grammatical mistakes here and there. I recently began writing articles on various online writing platforms as a sort personal challenge. I translate technical and scientific documents for my day job and this of course can be both tedious and monotonous, hence I often feel the need to express myself through writing. I enjoy hiking, mountain-climbing and other outdoor activities in my free time but my real passion is learning foreign languages. I currently speak seven languages fluently and am actually in the process of learning three more. My favourite food is South Indian-style vegetarian masala curry with rice and lentil soup served on a banana leaf. I also like Turkish kebabs and Thai green papaya salad, so you could say that my food preferences do indeed reveal my somewhat quirky and eclectic personality.

Welcome to the site Alderaan8 ! Translator and linguist, now that's quite a match! By any chance, is your user name a Star Wars reference? Looking forward to reading your work my friend.

Even native English speakers have problems sometimes. But there are online support systems to take care of that. Your interest in South Indian food raises my curiosity.

Wow your great! you know seven languages, and there's three more? How do you process that in your mind? Haha. I'm linguist too, but only three, one is our own dialect. Maybe you could post some basic translations of languages you know. :D Welcome to PP sir!

OMG! amazing. I envy you for all the languages. Well done. I only speak two. Busy learning couple of French words. I'm new here all the way from the Republic of South Africa.

Wow! I'm impressed with your being able to speak seven languages. Which ones are they?

Alderaan8 wrote on February 16, 2015, 1:42 AM

Well I speak English, French, Malay, Mandarin Chinese, Hindi, Tagalog and Japanese. I'm a bit of a language nut !

That's a diverse group. I'm surprised you don't have something Slavic in there.

I am new here too. Your introduction is very interesting. You certainly will have a great deal to write about here.

I was thinking of learning some Russian or Polish but I haven't got the time yet. I have a colleague who speaks at least 15 Europeans languages, basically all the Slavic, Germanic and Romance languages in Europe. Needless to say, he is a genius.
