German & English speakers

I'm afraid all I know how to say in German is, "I am a doughnut."<br>

If you know that, you also know how to say "I am a hamburger" and "I am a sausage".<br>
Flavius, it would be great if you could help out. Please send me an email at [email protected] to coordinate. <p>Greets<br>

I can do "Ich heise Crispvs"; "Ich bin hungrig" and "Wo ist dem Barnhoff", but that's about it for my German. English is another matter though. My degree is a B.A. (double major) in History and Classical Studies with a Post Grad Diploma in Teaching and I have been proof reading foreign students' Ph.D. theses and correcting and advising them on spelling and grammar for some years now. I can't help much with the translation but I should be able to help out on the proof reading side of things.<br>

Proofreading my translation would be extremely helpful !<br>
My last exams in English were in 2002 and since then I have become a little rusty.<br>
<br>
I hope to do the translation concerning the III Italica on Saturday (if I fail to complete it in time, a friend of mine has a key, so I can also work on Sundays).<br>
<br>
Should I send the text both to you and to Jasper, or only to you, so that the raw translation and the proofread text don't get mixed up ?<br>
<br>
Jasper, what do you think ?<br>
<br>

BTW, it's 'Wo ist der Bahnhof ?' <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://pub45.ezboard.com/[email protected]mytalk>FLAVIUS PROMOTUS</A> at: 12/10/03 8:15 am<br></i>

Please send the raw stuff to me, so I can keep track of who's doing what. I'll pass it on to volunteers for proofreading.<br>
Thanks by the way dudes! <p>Greets<br>

If you need another proof-reader of English I'm happy to help. For what it's worth, I've a degree in Classics from Oxford and far too much experience of proof-reading school magazines.<br>

Hi Jasper,<br>
<br>
I come from Asciburgium in Germania Inferior and German is my mother language! If You still need help, I am ready to volunteer in translating a part. But I left Grammar school several years ago and I don't know how good my English is and whether I can fulfill Your requirements; I have no practical experience in translating from German to English.<br>
<br>
So proofreading would surely be necessary. If You have a not too large text for me, let me know. <br>

Hi Uwe,<br>
That's ok, there are short pieces too. Do you have access to Ritterling yourself or do you need photocopies?<br>

Sorry Jasper,<br>
I won't be able to complete the article on II Italica within the next days. Buying stupid presents for christmas and re-cooking chicken filled (Apicius!) both took up too much time.<br>
<br>
I'll try to complete it at soon as possible.<br>
<br>
Greetings to all of you and<br>
have a nice time !<br>
