Help me make this Christmas special! » answer
by sportasal, 2017-12-06, 15:55  Spam?  40.137.104...
I am trying to buy this Krakow snow globe for my friend for a Christmas gift. We once spent a very wonderful snowy day together in St. Mary's square. This is the only website I could find it on. The problem is, I can't figure out how to buy it or add it to my cart! I don't know Polish. Can anyone please help me? I would be so grateful!
Problems  #883439
by Catesse (AU), 2017-12-07, 01:02  Spam?  
The first step would be to click on the little trolley next to "Zaloguj". I tried this, but I could not get to the point of ordering. However, I think that it is Mission Impossible, for the following reasons.
If this was a firm that was accustomed to shipping outside of Poland, it would have a facility for ordering in English. It could well refuse to ship.
The cost of the item is roughly $7. The postage could cost much more than that.
And the cost of sending the money to Poland could be much, much more again. Really big bucks, if it will not accept credit cards or Paypal.
Cute little trinket, but I don't think that it would be feasible to get it. Maybe somebody else is more familiar with this procedure.
What does pokrzywniku mean? » answer
by Baynie, 2017-11-27, 15:50  Spam?  86.202.221...

In the first book of the Witcher, one character insults Geralt, saying:

" Słyszysz, co mówię, pokrzywniku?"

The english version of the book translates this in:

"Do you hear me, you bastard?"

But what does "pokrzywniku" really mean? When I use google translate, "pokrzywniku" and "bastard" don't match at all.
Pokrzywnik  #882940
by Catesse (AU), 2017-11-28, 04:42  Spam?  
The basic form, nominative case, is "pokrzywnik", which means "tortoiseshell". I don't know what it implies as a term of abuse. Maybe somebody who is a bit dense, thick, stupid?

I found that an old meaning of the word "pokrzywnik" is bastard in that german-polish word-book.

So the english translation is good. The word pokrzywnik is used in its old meaning beacause it is a middle-aged fantasy world.

Depends on the circumstances. It can mean sort of wild, crazy, and I think that it is the name for a cartoon dog. (Snoopy?) Enter "bzik" into Google and consider which of the variants might suit your situation.
Polish for hurry up » answer

Names  #869714
by Catesse (AU), 2017-05-01, 06:04  Spam?  
Generally, you leave people's names as close to the original as possible. That would mean simply a change to "Lodziana". (Or possibly "Lodzian".)
Why would you want to do more than that?
by Odziana, 2017-05-01, 19:15  Spam?  71.4.24...
Catesse - Most Poles with names like mine went with a respelling, such as "Wojiana" or "Wojana".  However, my ancestors lobbed off the Ł and re-pronounced the name "Odziana" as Ode-zee-ana.  That wouldn't have been my choice.  I am now a third generation American.  I speak only English and identify only as an American.  In addition to my identity, it doesn't help socially to have a difficult-to-pronounce, foreign language last name.  For these reasons, I'm trying to translate "Łodziana" so that I can keep my heritage intact within its meaning, while still adopting an English surname.
Łódź  #869756
by Catesse (AU), Last modified: 2017-05-02, 04:45  Spam?  
You are telling ME about the problems of having an unpronounceable name? Our response was: Get used to it. Live with it. And becoming resigned to spelling it out every time it had to be written down. With two exceptions. My husband reverted to his easier partisan pseudonym as a first name, and I chose an alias for my books. My publisher said: If potential buyers can't pronounce your name, or remember your name, they can't ask for your books. So I gave in on that.
But back to your problem. If you are choosing a name that you and your descendants will have to live with for generations, you have to give it careful thought. I take it that "Łodziana" means an inhabitant of Łódź.
See: Wikipedia(EN): %C5%81%C3%B3d%C5%BA
By the way: the Polish pronunciation of "Odziana" would be something like "Oh-JYA-na".
The nearest English name, as regards pronunciation, is probably Woods. Or Woodsman. If you want to keep closer to the spelling: Lodger. (But I am not sure whether that exists as a surname.)
I am not advising you on this - just airing some ideas. This decision is highly personal.
by Odziana, 2017-05-02, 05:03  Spam?  174.195.141...
Catesse - Thank you for your responses.  I'm concerned with preserving the meaning rather than the pronunciation.  Based on the meaning of "Łódź", I believe the nearest English surname could be "Boatman".  However, is there a difference between "Łodz" and "Łódź"?
Boatman  #869758
by Catesse (AU), 2017-05-02, 05:48  Spam?  
You probably need somebody with a deeper knowledge of Polish than I have, but a few thoughts.
I have had a good look through Polish dictionaries as well as bilingual dictionaries, and although "łódż" can mean a boat, there is nothing that I can find to indicate that Łodzian(a) means anything other than an inhabitant of Łódź. No dictionary that I can find translates "boatsman" as anything like "łodzian".
"Łodz" and "Łódź": I don't think that  "Łodz" exists in "proper" Polish. "Łódź" is monosyllabic, with "ó" as the only vowel, a "closed" vowel. When you add another syllable, it changes to "Ło-dzian". The "o" is now an "open" vowel. The fact that the "dz" is a "soft" consonant pair is now shown by the following "i" instead of the accent above the "ź". (Elementary Polish orthography.)
If you want to be sure whether Łodzian can possibly mean "boatman", you need a real expert on Polish, not somebody who just claims to be (which I do not). (Professions derived in this way often/mostly end in "-iarz", not "-ian".)
I would be interested in knowing if you find out anything more definite about this.
by Odziana, 2017-05-02, 05:54  Spam?  174.195.141...
Catesse - I think you settled it for me in that "Łodz" and "Łódź" are identical and that Łódźian means an inhabitant of Łódź.  I've learned that inhabitants of Łódź call themselves "the boat people".  With that, Boatperson doesn't make any sense as a surname - Boatman is damn near perfect :)  As thanks, I'll tell my descendants that you named us!

Sorry  #863542
by Catesse (AU), 2017-01-25, 01:52  Spam?  
It is seldom now that anybody helps on either of the Polish sites. I have been waiting since September for help with just two words on DE-PL.
Your text is way beyond my abilities, and in any case it is too long to be a reasonable request. I can just make a few remarks. I found the original book. The scanning is not too bad, except for some of the diacritics; I have seen much worse. The problems are the abbreviations and the fact that the book was published well before the spelling reform of 1936 (?), so quite a few words will have a different spelling in current dictionaries. Even worse: it has quotes from much older books with even worse spelling differences.  
Example of a difficult abbreviation: the impossible-looking "Rzpltej" is, I think, simply an abbreviation for "Rzeczpospolitej", genitive form of "Republic", meaning the Republic of Poland.
You will need to find somebody with a fair knowledge of old Polish, and unless that is somebody with an extraordinarily generous spirit, it will cost. A lot.

Thank you for showing your interest! In fact I am to translate this text into Ukrainian or Russian or at least English language. For me as a native Ukrainian some words sound familiar and have similar meaning with my language. But this old Polish makes my brain explode. At least if it was in modern spoken Polish or without these abbreviations. Do you know maybe any sources where someone could help? I could do some translations in return. I agree, that nowadays all has its price. Soon even air will cost.
Abbreviations  #863549
by Catesse (AU), 2017-01-25, 12:33  Spam?  
You might find this site helpful with abbreviations:
"The labourer is worthy of his hire." I have just spent two days working through some Polish genealogical material for somebody on another site. (Not nearly as difficult as this material.) I feel quite worn out by it, but I learned some things from it, so it was worth the effort. (I spent over an hour on the word "cisi" before I realised that it was a derivative of "cichy". Next time I come across this sort of problem, I should be able to work it out more quickly.) However, you cannot expect anyone to do a translation of that length and difficulty without some reward or satisfaction. You may be lucky enough to find somebody, but you cannot expect it.

Thank you!
Where?  #863016
by Catesse (AU), 2017-01-15, 05:44  Spam?  
It does not make much sense to me. The grammar is incomprehensible. It was rejected by five different translation sites. Not written by a person with much knowledge of Polish. It is possible to get the general idea; the emotion behind it seems to be anti-racist, not racist.
Taking it bit by bit:
Narodowcu: "narodowcy" refers to a rather unsavoury bunch of violent fascists, but I cannot find a justification for "narodowcu".
Google: narodowcy
Szmalcowniku: referred during the war in particular to people who betrayed hidden Jews to the Nazis.
Wikipedia(EN): Szmalcownik
I don't see any way to link these two forms together; maybe someone can be more inventive.
Twoje miejsce: your place. Grammatically justifiable, but it does not entirely fit the context.
Smietniku: śmietnik  = rubbish bin, trash can. Grammatical form unjustifiable.
You get the general idea.
Racism  #863062

Propaganda slogans on Polish stationery envelopes between 1945 and 1952 Part 1 » answer

During the communist years 1945-1952 in Poland, 8 propaganda slogans were printed on stationery envelopes. This is the first one. It is a quotation from communist president Bolesław Bierut:

Przed wsią polską, przed milionowymi masami chłopców pracujących stanęło dziś olbrzymie zadanie:
przebudować i ulepszyć życie wsi polskiej, podnieść dobrobyt i kulturę mas ludowych.

The new query will also have to wait. I actually rather enjoy these translations. They are extending my knowledge and ability linguistically and giving me a little extra historical insight. But I do tend to become engrossed in the searches, and I don't want to end up getting to bed at three o'clock tomorrow morning.

Sorry for the delay, but I had some unexpected domestic problems, and the first sentence gave me a bit of trouble.
Today a huge task lies ahead of the Polish village, ahead of the massed millions of young working men: rebuild and improve life in the Polish countryside, increase the prosperity and culture of the masses.
I don't think that this is much of an improvement on your version. It is not easy to reproduce the feeling of the claptrap of the communist political machine.
