Foreign Language

12 Mar

Chances are – if someone’s online dating profile is in English,  they live in America, and they only list English in the “languages” category –  sending them a message in Portuguese isn’t going to get you very far.

J got this message today:

” GOSTEI DE VC,DO DEU PERFIL PODERIAMOS NOS CONHECER MELHOR”

To which google translates into:

“LIKED THE VC’S PROFILE DEU Could weKNOW BETTER”

I know Google Translator is out there –  and it’s a wonderful thing..  but if you can’t spell in your language, Google Translator isn’t going to do too much good.   And what happens when you meet in person?  — It’d be like that F.R.I.E.N.D.S episode.. but hopefully I get to be Phoebe and hook up with the interpreter.  Haha!   …Or was that Monica?

And, for those interested:   J wrote back, in Portuguese, “I don’t know Portuguese, have a nice day.”
