    "Anden Verdenskrig" Thanks, and just to be sure, is this with all the accents?

    Hi

    Yes, that´s with all. There is only on.

    The word "World War II" in Faroese is:

    "Annar Heimsbardaga"

    *bump*

    I just wanted to give this thread a kick and ask you guys for a teeny bit more help.

    I appreciate all of your help so far, and now I need to know how to say "World War 2" in as many other languages as possible. I had previously asked for "World War Two", but now I need to be able to write it with the 2 expressed in it's digit form.

    All updates are added to the first post in this thread.

    Golly, I have long, long lists of WWII era acronyms and abbreviations . . . runs to, literally, well over ten thousand entries and that's sticking to Allied only, though, admittedly, some are fairly obscure, from 1MC (ship board announcing/address system) to ZT (Zone Time).

    (And I haven't looked at my German or Japanese acronyms lists in years)

    I suspect that it might be easier just to wait for someone to ask for definition and let everyone else pile on with an answer.

    "İkinci Dünya Savaşı" in Turkish. But you might get difficulties with some letters.

    And the google translator might be helpful but I am not sure if it will give exact results but when you type "Second World War" it gives these results;

    第二次世界大戦 (Japanese)

    第二次世界大戰 (Chinese) It gives a clue about its reliability, same result for Japanese and Chinese.

    الحرب العالمية الثانية (Arabic)

    제2차 세계 대전 (Korean)

    Hi Kerem ! Welcome back. I was afraid you did not survive boot camp :eek:

    Tell us about your military career and what all happened to you the last few months. You can write about it in the Free Fire Zone as Kerem's struggle to the top. :p
