If I post a reply in the non English section, does translator translate my text back to sweedish? I'd like to ask questions about some backgrounds I'm considering that hopefully more than the international members can read.

Hello Robyn,

No not that I know of. Ive only been reading them so far.

Thanks Banderad, Poddan & Dan

That's good to know. Trouble is, I'm not really finding the google translator so great to use. I can sort of work out what is being said, but it obviously is not 100% accurate. Main problem is there seems to be some incompatibility & things just don't behave properly when I'm using it.

Oh well.

Well something will never be 100 % correct but think the text will give you a very good ide of what is written in swedish.

Hello Robyn,

Yes the Google translator is basic, but I think about 75% of the time its good enough to work out whats what. The problem is sentences seem to be structured in a slightly different manor than you get with English so you have to read it twice sometimes and the odd word cant be translated, it just takes time to get used to thats all and takes longer to read.
The biggest problem though I have is for some reason there are certain pages that I cant get it to translate, but Im guessing that it is only about 1 in 4 pages that dont translate.

Hello Poddan, Thanks for that. Good to know. Although at this stage Im happy (Dont know about TWR) just to read, theres so much info to get through. The Swedish have a much bigger appreciation of Wild fish than English Discus keepers.
