Do you speak languages other than English and would like to offer your skills to fellow shrine-makers? Post here so others know who they can reach out to! If you're not available at the time of them contacting you or don't want to take on the request, that's absolutely fine!

Here's a list of things these services could be used for:
  • name meanings (multiple elements in Japanese names; international Pokémon name origins)
  • songtexts (official, fanmixes, etc.)
  • material only available/accessible in one language, fandoms that are more popular in one country than another
  • shrine name suggestions (so that they don't sound awkward to someone who knows the language)
  • translation comparison in ambiguous scenes
Both despair and ecstasy are part of the elements that compose a person.

*waves* I'd be happy to help! :D Here are the languages I speak:

Italian (mother tongue)
German (intermediate)
Norwegian (intermediate)
And a basic understanding of a few others such as French, Dutch and Spanish. (I'm currently learning Dutch and Polish is next on my list!)

I've also studied ancient Greek and Latin in school for 5 years, so I can probably help with those as well! :) (In case anyone wants to make a shrine to an "ancient" subject! XD)

oooh I'm happy this is taking off! :heart: I think those specifications are useful, and I like how you're also listing languages you may be rusty with or have a basic understanding of haha - I can imagine that going a long way when it comes to shrines. :star: I'll not make an overview in the first post of this topic then, since I think it's easier for anyone looking for assistance to just ctrl+f the topic in this case. :)

I'd be happy to help with these:
  • German (native)
  • French (6-8 school years)*
* Assistance is hit or miss. I can translate long passages with context, lyrics, official info, etc. but I may not see subtlety or see the roots of Pokémon names. ¬_¬

I can help, too!
  • Italian (native)
  • French (good for translating most things, but a bit rusty)
  • Spanish (good for translating most things, but a bit rusty)
Basic understanding of Portuguese, Swedish and Japanese.

Plus, like Chibi, those 5 years of Latin, hee.

Ahh I know I'm late Lethe but I'd like to just let you know I'm here for you if you ever need me! I only know two other languages other than English, and both are pretty well taken care of it seems! :D Which is absolutely beautiful, because I think language is probably one of the most amazing things in the world. ;___; <3

I am fluent in Japanese; the majority of my father's family are native. Minus me and my sisters haha!

I can help translate Tagalog as well, however it's probably my weakest spoken language. I can understand it and translate, I just have trouble finding full responses in Tagalog. T__T;;

Other than those two I did take three years of Korean in school! I can read and write in Hangul fluently as well, but I would say I am at an intermediate level when it comes to word comprehension. But I can definitely do my best to help translate things!

Sorry for the super long response ;;;;; I hope one day I can help anyone out!

Haha nobody's late in this topic, since it's a sticky that's meant to come in handy whenever people are looking for help! :D And to everyone: Don't hesitate to post in here if you know a language other people have already posted about before! It's great to know how many Amassment members there are who not only know different languages, but are willing to help out others. (Plus not everyone's available at the same time, or on a certain communication channel, etc.)

:star: :heart: :music: :star:

I can translate and interpret from Japanese to English. I majored in Japanese in college and also lived in Japan for a couple of years.

Aside from standard Japanese, I can read classical Japanese and understand Kansai-ben (along with a couple other super obscure dialects).
