    German speakers: I need you :)

    Hello

    I got this new gig, in germany. I live in sweden. The mail I send I write in swedish, the ones I get back are in german.

    Only problemn is ... I dont speak german. Well, the languages are pretty simular and there is really just some words I need explained (translated to english, or swedish ) and they are very specific (usually something I'm supposed to draw)



    So here goes:

    What the **** is this:



    Koffer hat

    eine Flasche Mückenöl (I get the bottle part

    ein Handy



    Thanx in advance

    Koffer = suitcase

    Mückenöl = insect repellent

    Handy = Cellphone

    Hope this could help

    The first one is out of context...

    "..suitcase has.."

    "a bottle of mosquito oil"

    "a cellphone"

    I'd recommend finding someon who can translate these letters to you... Fucking up a gig because you simply didn't understand what the customer wanted from you would be pretty stupid.
