In French: notre monde, votre vision

In traditional Chinese: 我們的世界 你的觀點


And I like the idea of all the languages.

In Norwegian (2 names for world):
1) Vaar verden - din visjon
2) Vaar jord - din visjon

I like it better in the English version because whats right in one language ain't necessarily right in another language.

Here's a jpg file with norwegian letters:

World you can put to different meanings like; the whole world, or the room/comunity you're in is your world etc, as the word "Jord" is our planet earth or the soil you're walking on.

benjamin: when you say "traditional" chinese, is that mandarin? or something else?...your translations motivated me to look up a little info on language in Taiwan...i had no idea Taiwan was such a mash-up of different cultures and different languages. i'm speculating from your name, that you're not a native of taiwan...so what brought you there, what's your story?

To be able to write our special character -- on a non-norwegian keyboard type the following. Press the ALT + 0229.
At least this is the way on a PC-system, not sure about Mac.

I didn't get that you wanted to print al on the same T-shirt... That is a cool idea, you got my 100% support on this one!

This would be the translation to Swedish:

Vr vrld - Din vision

If you want it as a pic, what type and size? in some way you should be able to type "ring" and "two dots" over A. In Illustrator (or any Adobe program) you can get the type window with all different letters.

Number of inhabitants in Norway is 4.5 million, a medium city in US I think ;-)

Geir Inge, Trond and Vidar what do you think?

PS! I was thinking of you Vidar when we had our meeting yesterday. Next time you will be there right?
Yes, I agree too.
I don't mind having only English text on the t-shirts.

thanks, chris, now all we need is someone from a spanish-speaking country and a portueguese person to sign up (and finish). i guess we also need to find a dead roman! who makes videos....

thanks for the translation, markus!

linguists say that about half the world's languages will vanish in the next hundred years due to globalization...and if you vikings have your way, norwegian will be the next to go!
