    Thank you.. Claire This is one of the most help posts I have read in weeks.
    (not saying some of the others haven't been helpful of course)

    The language page is great and I am sure I wil be using it quite a lot.

    I can throw the babel fish away now that I have stuck in my ear and try remembering more words for myself.

    Hey finchie,

    How can you use the babel fish site to translate Turkish? As far as I know it's not available in Turkish. :confused:

    finchie Fan

    sorry for being misleading..

    I didn't mean the site, I thought I was being funny and giving a backhanded reference to the film "Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy",, Ford Prefect used the babel fish to understand Vogon. (I must sound like a real nurd now?) It obviously didn't work because you didn't get the joke.. Sorry!

    Oh well.. don't I feel silly now?? hahahaha
