Hallo Wilfried,

Welke talen zoek je eigenlijk: ik kan voor Macedonisch, Aromanian (Vlach),
Afrikaans, Iers, Grieks en Turks zorgen (een paar vrienden en -innen in die
"brache").

Laat maar weten,
Groeten vanuit PireĆ¼s - Griekenland,
Stefaan.

What

> The two words are:

> - MIRRORING (= "the reflection of a mirror")
> Important is that the translations are words, not word groups which
> describe the content.
> The deadline for receiving the translations is May 13th. Please send the
> translations in the original orthograpy (ideal would be a Word-document,
or

> All the persons who send us their suggestions will be informed about the
> "art project" later on, so that they know what happened with their words!
> Thank you very much for your help!
