Thank you so much!!! This is so useful. If you like please keep adding stuff as you think of it. Anything people use back and forth is so cool I am trying to be better about using German in my writing my friends- they write everything to me in English so I want to add more phrases in German.

Some things I would like to know are like this:
I hope you're feeling better!
What the heck does that mean?
No way!
You're not serious are you?
Break a leg
I hope this is a huge success!
That was so cute
That was so bizarre
Have a great weekend
Long day!
What's up, hope you are fine and happy and all that good stuff.

If this is a boring thing to do that's okay i just thought I'd ask! I have German friends I would love to use the language more at least in writing them They'd be surprised to have me using their language!
Hello
I find it really what plan them. Clear I become this supporting.
I have found a really side with which one can translate whole sentences or even sales.
Sometimes it does not translate just quite correctly, but one gets on almost always.

Greeting Helmi

Helmi,

Your farm is fantastic. I am not sure about a truley German thread only because we would need someone who would be willing to stick with it and be willing to read and translate the information people would be wanting on that thread.

Out of curiosity, is the game in english where you play it or does the game itself at least translate to German for you?

Between this and the thread I started about where people are from this does give me an idea for a new thread. I will be posting it today in the Social Section.

Grüß dich, Helmi! (is das kurz für Helmut?) Ich glaube wir sind schon Freunde.
Hey Helmi, I think we're friends already.

I am sorry. I do know the difference but was thinking faster than I was typing. (lol which is a feat given I type at about 90 wpm when I am on a roll)

Thanks for setting it straight not only for me but for others as well.
