I saw yet again a toot calling for solidarity for migrants, and I thought what a socially anxious translator like me could do in practice.

And I can always help with language.

So what if anyone willing to do the same showed their willingness, among with details what they're ready to do and in what languages, with the hashtag .

Feel free to boost as much as you like, and of course share your own language skills.

If you need help with or in , I can answer questions about language and provide short translations related to your life as a migrant for free.

You can ask in any A/B/C level language mentioned in my profile, although I may answer in English.

Note: I'm not licensed to do official translations.

Contact via DM or on public timeline.


The last night in the old apartment is over, i can't say to be well rested. So today is the second haulage day, and we should get the whole apartment empty.

And tonight I'll sleep in Horsepiss!

anyways, do you know of data or research into how ethnoracial minorities are represented in commuter cycling in nederlands?

I am interested in whether minorities prefer cycling as much as majorities, and if not maybe I can save it as a research project for later (tho if you do research in this area, take this idea and ride 😉 with it. if you publish sth tho, ping me abt it, I'm curious)



Gaelic was one of 4 languages in which medical knowledge was formally and systematically studied and taught in Europe during the Middle Ages.

Other three were Greek, Latin and Arabic.

I need to find out more about this.

Old Irish question, :boost_requested: 

Does anyone know how to say "Celtic witch" in Old Irish?

In a gender-neutral way, if possible. Would be grateful.

lately, there has been a heated debate in the US about the safest way to cross a river

@Stoori serious answer:
patri/matriarch are from a greko-latin, so the best answer is probably geniarch or gignentiarch. Parentiarch is also possible, but parens -entis is in Latin only, so that's a bit inconsistent with the Greek.

Polyglot City is the right instance for you, if you're interested in linguistics, languages, language learning and translating, or if you are multilingual or polyglot. All languages are allowed to flourish on our timelines. And of course you're free to talk about anything else besides languages, too. Make this your personal home!
