Re: Ticino Laws translated into EN

I think if you explained why you are doing this you might get more help from the members. (But if what you really need is translation services, you may want to contract someone to do the work.) I don't think that it's a simple matter of correcting the English, because you have some mistranslations from the Italian here. They are subtle, but substantive.

This information I don’t need in English, only I am learning English and I hope in this way to find friends. I thought people would be interested to speak about the fundamental laws of the country where they will go and I had written very primitive and elemental information; it is not difficult for people who began to learn the Italian Language.
I wanted only to find some team that you will be interested. If you're not interested about it I could write legends, historical unknown facts and fates of Ticino.

I'll bite. What are the "fates" of Ticino. (I'm a little less interested in the cantonal law of Ticino.) Please say ghosts or minor pagan dieties.

But, you could also just jump in one of the discussions on the other threads. You'll get plenty of experience chatting in English without making the other party feel like they are completing an exercise.

Re: Ticino Laws translated into EN


Why did you not like the theme that I had opened? This theme is relevance a lot of people. Social Event will always be for the second time.
A topicality argument always comes from the periphery or comes out of emptiness. The theme"Ticino Laws translated into EN" is as a concept seems to me a kind of axis on which a sense pushed forward through all the layers of meaning and time, connecting the past, present, momentary with something eternal, unchanging.

Usually, we ask them to look at:

You can join in to any Social Event and meet up to brush up your spoken EN.

Far more productive and entertaining than learning things, only lawyers and teachers really understand profoundly AND very good to update, as also English is not permanent but changes. Expressions which were in fashion, let's say in Greater London in the 70ies and 80ies are now completely démodé, while new expressions and new ways came in.

Just look at Email correspondence with England. "Hi" simply was USA but not "old England" while it apparently has become fairly common. And particularily Brits write at the start of a message "Hi there" . But language is not what you have learnt 4 decades ago, but what people use in reality.

Re: Ticino Laws translated into EN

I opened this Topic for people who have started to learn the Italian language in Ticino. It is topic is not for whom study law. I opened the topic in the Language corner, but a moderator the thread moved. The Moderator changed the name of my theme too.
It is changed and transformed completely the meaning of my topic.
