First: sorry for my english, I am from Germany and I have no idea where I coul ask, so I am asking you XD
There are many FF in which Ziva speaks some parts in Hebrew. Where can I find a webside to translate some words in here native language and the result is NOT a mystic hebrew symbol, just a word I can read, "understand" and rewirte? Some of you must know because you are doing it ^^ If its in english it's ok, I just need a few little words, I think I can handle that even in english ;)
I would be so glad if there is someone out there who could help me.
Rats, I just lost the whole post, argh! That'll teach me.
OK; I'm very much a beginner with Hebrew, but I might be able to help. I'm not certain I understand what you're after, but if you mean being able to insert Hebrew into your fics without using Hebrew letters, then I may be able to give you a hand. If that isn't what you meant, let me know, and ill see if I can help anyway! Though, no guarantees...
to start you off, here are some basics that would add a bit of flavour and will hopefully be generally useful. In all cases I'll assume Ziva is speaking, so I will use feminine verb forms Where necessary. If you want to have a man speaking, let me know.
Shalom - hello, goodbye, peace.
lehitra'ot - see you later
Ma shlomcha - how are you, to a man
Ma shlomech - how are you, to a woman
lo - no
ken - yes
Todah - thank you
bevakasha - please and you're welcome
Ma kore? What's up?
Slicha - sorry, I'm sorry, forgive me, excuse me
Boker tov - good mmorning
erev tov - good evening
laylah tov - good nnight
mazel tov - congratulations (literally means good luck, or good constellation I think, lol, but they use it after the luck has BEEN good!)
as you may have gathered from the above, tov means good :-)
B'hatzlacha - good luck (with success, literally) - this for example she could use prior to a mission to wish a colleague success.
anyway, like I said, sadly far from an expert, but I hope this will give you a start. If this isn't what you meant at all, then slicha (forgive me!) and if you let me know what you need, I will help if I can!2/10/2013 #2
