    Bienvenue! Je suis nouveau aussi. Je viens de rejoindre hier. J'ai utilisé Google pour traduire cela en français pour vous. J'espère que cela a fonctionné et a du sens pour vous.

    (Welcome! I'm new too. I just joined yesterday. I have used Google to translate this into French for you. I hope it has worked and makes sense for you.)

    Bienvenue.

    Faites de votre mieux et nous essaierons de converser autant que possible.

    Le seul français que je connaisse est «omelette au fromage».

    It is mostly. I used Google to translate it into French.

    I have several Dutch friends and I use it from time time when replying to them. I have found Google Translate is mostly correct, but it does use some substandard phrasing and the like. Thankfully, I don't have to use it often as they all have a grand command of the English language. To be honest with you, I had greater ease understanding most of the Nederlanders in South Holland than I did most of the bona fide English in London.

    Funnily enough, I did use an online translator (probably Google) once to translate something into Dutch for my friends in Holland...and apparently it didn't do it quite correctly! I recall they told me that there was something that didn't quite make sense...but maybe it was my fault with how I worded the original text.

    Sometimes the words are very hard to differentiate sometimes. .We had an Australian exchange student and he said that the hardest Finnish word was "tavata" which means to meet. If you somehow say "minä tapan sinut illalla" that is "I will kill you tonight"but when saying "Minä tapaan sinut illalla" is "I will meet you tonight". Just one a missing makes a big difference.
