View Full Version : Quick! I need a Greek!

I need to translate this:

"I'm not arrogant"
"I'm just better than you".

into modern greek.

I was given this by a friend:

"then eimai megalofronas"
"alla eimai pio kalyteros apo sena"

Which I then ran through a transliterator and came out with this:

θεν ειμαι μεγαλοφρονασ
αλλα ειμαι πιο καλυτεροσ απο σενα

Upon manually checking it against a table of greek characters it looks right to me, but then I'm not greek, so I wouldn't know.

Little help?

Oh, GREEK!

Sorry, I thought you were looking for a GEEK...

Nevermind....

Cheers, Tim

Brendo,

You're in Melbourne...the second largest Greek city in the world...

You can't just roll up to a kebab shop? Take a cab ride? Start a riot at a local soccer match?

:lol:


Cheers,
Tim

crisis averted - i got someone to check it over for me - it was surprisingly almost right, only 3 characters had to be changed.

I was gonna say that :lol:

That's like someone from Sydney asking to have something translated into lebanese :lol:

Or like someone from Perth asking to have something translated into Chinese (both versions), Malay, Indonesian, Japanese, or Korean.

Or a regional English accent. There is a major shopping centre in our far-southern suburbs that is completely devoid of Australian accents. Every voice is a regional English accent. Every one.

:lol:

Haha! That was my first thought too... If you can't find a Greek in Melbourne, then you're not trying very hard :Razz:

The point was I needed a Greek who doesn't make spelling mistakes, and I needed one in two hours...

See, it was part of our singer's 21st, I ended up checking it by his dad.
