Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
I do not even use TribExt. I translate directly to English (!). Actually, I had never written in English, until I started doing that in ET (!). My work is tremendous. But you learn of the error.
Thank you for your explanations and your work. Sometimes I think I do that you work too hard. Afew helps me a lot. I hope that this worthwhile.
My baby (M.) does nothing to me: he takes revenge for me (I told him, when he was small: do it!) And, when I ask you something, he tells me: Look here! Thank you, Dodo. Pedro. :-D

I love your writing in English.  You and kcurie.  So much more intuitive and colorful than some cookie-cutter translation software!

For example:

My baby (M.) does nothing to me: he takes revenge for me (I told him, when he was small: do it!)

I don't even know what you are talking about, but it's a pure joy to read!

I am glad your joy! And I love to hear that my English likes someone! I learned English by myself just to read and I'm able to make me understand in writing! Thank you.

My baby is my son, who is 32 years old. He is known (and therefore I have written his name as M.) When I now ask him something, he gives me a web page or any source and he tells me: Do what is said here!
When he was little and asked me some thing, I said to him often: Do!
:-D

I had no idea!  Of course, it all makes perfect sense now...
