Hi Yung-jin,

So do I.

» » Waunst wüst, kaunst mit mia a auf weanarisch plauschen.
» misspelled 'wienerisch'?

Nope, intentional. That’s how it is used in Vienna (following the style of [image] H.C. Artmann). The entire sentence in [image] Standard German:
Wann du willst, kannst du mit mir auch auf Wienerisch plaudern.
[image] de → en, [image] de → zh-cn.
Not perfect cause “auch” (= as well) is not given in the translations.

» cannot find its translation using Google.

[image] Wienerisch is a dialect of [image] Austrian German (which differs* from Standard German). That’s the one I grew up with and still use in daily life. I learned Standard German in primary school. Was tough. No surprise that the artificial unintelligence Google gives up.

BTW, few people master it to speak English with no accent. Native speakers told me that the German accent is reminiscent of the Third Reich, whereas the – more soft – Austrian accent is “charming”. ;-) For me both sound terrible.

» » Αν θέλετε μπορείτε να συνομιλήσετε μαζί μου στα άθλια ελληνικά.
» Google: 如果你願意的話,可以和我聊天。

I think an important word is missing. In English:
If you want, you can chat with me in poor Greek. My Greek is lousy.
