I got a new toy yesterday—a new computer. The word processor states it can translate what you type into other languages so I thought I would give it a try.

What did I just type in French? And in Spanish?

Ayez un beau jour.Va-t-il comment mon Français ?Je me demande si ceci traduira de français-anglais ?

Tenga un día agradable.¿Cómo es mi español?¿Me pregunto si esto traduce de español al inglés?

Pardon my French (and Spanish!)

Bonjour.

The punctuation marks look great. Perhaps you could send a package of accent marks to poor José, who always looks sort of silly with his apostrophes.

Merci beaucoup, Namo, mais ne sélectionnons pas sur Jose'. Son accent est simplement bon.

You got it, Drama Queen. What I said was: Have a nice day. How is my French? I wonder if this will translate from French to English. And the same in Spanish.

The miracles of modern technology. If it were only as easy to get along.

Allez-vous en.

According to the translator, that meant “You go in.”, DP. I’m thinking you said, “You got it”. Am I right?

Bonjour Madame. Ca va? Je suis bonne. A tout a leur.

I took french since Kindergarten and I'm going into 10th grade and I still can't speak it fluent. I just took my regents this summer and I passed it so I'm very happy! :)
