I just plugged the phrase "I bet you don't know what language I'm speaking" into Google Translate. I'm sure some of the translations are off. If you know a better translation, please let me know. Also please let me know how you feel about the time, and if you think I need the five false answers. Thanks for playing!!!!!!!!!!

I got bad results.. :P But still...Croatian! Yay! Just write: "Kladim se da ne zna kojim jezikom govorim." The "ja" word is not necessary. We don't say it in this kind of statements. :D
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 11:00 GMT
What only 92.5% of people got English? Maybe they don't understand the instructions... or this whole website.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 13:42 GMT
(ego) beo te non scire quem linguam loquar. Yeah...Google Latin is still early in the works lol
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 14:02 GMT
Some improvements: German: Ich wette, dass du nicht weißt, welche Sprache ich spreche (it is already correct but "Sie" is the polite form of address, unnecessary here) Spanish: Apuesto que no sabes qué idioma estoy hablando ("sé" is first person, so "sabes" instead and I don't think you want the "a" after apuesto - but my Spanish isn't perfect either) Latin: Facio sponsionem ut non scis quam linguam dico (the existing version is an utter mess in particular because the translator doesn't know what to do with the betting but also otherwise it seems to know nothing about Latin grammar) Also: Why two Hebrews? And I think you can do without the three answers that aren't languages at all and maybe replace them with actual languages. Thanks anyway :)
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 14:19 GMT
Thanks to all so far for the better translations, as I know nothing about none of the languages except English and a little Spanish. @Orangemonster, there was no reason for the two Hebrews, it is fixed now, thanks.

Thank you Sporcle, for my first Editors Pick!!!!!
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 16:27 GMT
I'm sure they'll be more. Keep up the good work :)
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 16:50 GMT
I don't think you need to have decoys with this game.
Aug 3rd, 2012 at 17:50 GMT
I agree with milgita, althogh I am not exactly a Latin grammar expert.... anyway, I thought this was a grand idea for a quiz. Very fun and plenty difficult, too.
Aug 4th, 2012 at 02:49 GMT
The Italian phrase shown now means "I bet that I don't know what language I'm speaking". It should be "Scommetto che non sai che lingua sto parlando" ("sai" instead of "so" to mean "you know" and not "I know").
Aug 4th, 2012 at 20:03 GMT
A slightly better translation for the Danish would be "Jeg vil vædde med, at du ikke ved, hvilket sprog jeg taler". :-)
Aug 5th, 2012 at 14:41 GMT
I like it. This is a cool idea.
Aug 6th, 2012 at 21:22 GMT
I don't want to sound like a smart-ass (I guess I'm allowed to on Sporcle) but milgita's Latin has a few mistakes in it. "Bere" is not a verb as far as I can research, it apparently has to be "Facio sponsionem" or some other long construction. It's "quam" instead of "quem" and "loquor" instead of "loquar". Using an accusativus cum infinitivo is better than my construction though, so this is probably best: facio sponsionem te non scire quam linguam loquor
Aug 6th, 2012 at 21:30 GMT
Thanks to all so far who have helped with better translations. Also, looking at the stats, seing that more people have gotten less than half of the answers, I am going to just delete the decoy answers. Please, keep the feedback coming.
Aug 7th, 2012 at 01:12 GMT
@orangemonster you are right about bere....I was feeling lazy and made up a verb...I tend to improvise when it doesn't matter very much. I am happy you took the time to look up the right way to say it. :) Thank you! Next time I'll know. You are also right about quem, since the word is an adjective in this case. But I do think it should be loquar. The indirect question calls for subjunctive.
Aug 15th, 2012 at 12:23 GMT
"Beo" is a Latin verb but it is from "beare", to bless. "Facio sponsionem" is more like agreeing to pay a fine or putting up collateral in a contract, it's a fancy legal phrase. Maybe "do pignus"? Or just a simple equivalent verb like "contendeo"?
Aug 21st, 2012 at 00:31 GMT
"Do pignus" would probably be best...Lewis and Short gives this definition: "'da pignus, ni ea sit filia,' lay a wager, bet, Plaut. Ep. 5, 2, 34;" http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.04.0059%3Aalphabetic+letter%3DP%3Aentry+group%3D61%3Aentry%3Dpignus
Aug 21st, 2012 at 00:33 GMT
But another way to say it using "contendere" -- "contendo pignore"...same link as above, lower down in the entry.
Oct 28th, 2012 at 17:37 GMT
I suppose you're right with loquar. It's been too long since my Latin days.
