Mucho big thanks to everyone assisting with the Poison Hair Project! Things are coming along wonderfully! I need to compile a new list of translations, as many more have some in since I last did, but I do not have time right now--and possibly not during the very full upcoming weekend. But, Monday, if I've not done it yet, I shall!

I can do Chinese if you don't have it already.

And I have a crazy friend who might be able to translate it into Latin (and Classical Greek) if I ask nicely.

Chinese: That would be *most* awesome! I have Japanese, but not Chinese.

Classical Latin and/or Greek: I have it in Latin, but not Greek. If it is not too much bother, it would be great to get it in Greek. I'd totally appreciate the extra effort, but don't go out of your way too far on my account either. ;)

Okay, then!

In Chinese (Mandarin Chinese- the official dialect):

Bie4 chu4mo1 wo3. wo3de tou2fa you3du2de.

Which is pronounced something like:

Bee-eh choo more war. War der toe far yo doo der.

The numbers after each syllable are tone marks. I found a web page with audio on how the tones sound.

I can write out and scan the characters if you want to know how its written.

BTW, Greek as in Plato’s Greek. And me and my friend used to translate stupid things into Greek all the time and write them up on the blackboard (including such classics as ‘So long and thanks for all the fish’, and ‘Do what I tell you to or I’ll sacrifice you all to Hades’). Its fun.

The webpage with the audio is here. It was on my original post, but then LJ ate it.

Tara said the Greek is 'Ou poiei aptomai ego, mou trixos farmakon,' but I've disagreed with some of her grammar. So we're now having a debate over sms.

Consensus is that its 'Ou poiei aptomai me, mou trixos farmakon'. After I wondered about such things as whether or not hair should be singular or plural.

And I know how to say pirate in Greek :)
