Albania // United States
Student and artist/football and politics fanatic
Anything to do with my lovely country, Albania and anything involving my beautiful part of Europe, the Balkans. Also, politics, futbol (soccer), Eurovision, Eurobeat, and anything else included in "About Me."
Parabéns Portugal pela Eurovisão!
Hello, I'm Nora! I am an Albanian American girl who loves things such as anime, manga, history, politics, culture, language, the arts, (such as music, photography, etc.) books, football/soccer, the Olympics, Eurovision, and traveling. (I'm a very big fan of Hetalia, Yugotalia, and Yuri on Ice!) And I am not a fan of political correctness and I hate war.
-I am currently a student, but have worked as an artist in my free time. My art business is currently closed for the moment, but it's going to be open sooner or later. I just need some time, since my education gets much enjoyment from pestering me. It's not that I despise school, it's just not fun, but I study and take it into a very important account for registering my role as a member of society in the future.
-Other than being an artist, I have worked for Google Translate. My main priority at the moment is my education though. It's my "job" right now, if you could call it that.
-My native language is Albanian and I am fluent in English. My native dialect in Albanian is the Gheg/northern dialect and Albanian was my first language. English was my second language. (Maybe English could be considered native, too?)
-I have studied Spanish and Italian and currently am studying German. My German is progressing well. This year, I've studied about basic day-to-day things. I have learned some basic verbs, as well as modal/helping verbs and future tense. I can actually communicate in German now. I feel proud of this achievement and will work hard to become fluent in German. Sometimes I study Russian, Hungarian, Serbo-Croatian/Bosnian/Montenegrin, Polish, French, Portuguese, Luxembourgish, Latin, Dutch, etc. For the most part, I understand some of these languages, except others I have a small, yet basic vocabulary of. I can speak quite basic German and Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian, but I tend to understand them both if I have more context or if I know a word or few; I can just make out what it's saying that way. I really would love to learn Russian and Serbian/Croatian fluently since I want to visit St. Petersburg, Moscow, Dubrovnik, Zagreb, and especially Belgrade in the future. I very much love languages.
-I will only translate things from Albanian to English and Albanian to English, as I am not quite sure about my studied languages, though I have studied Spanish and Italian for quite a long time. I have been studying German for a few months now and plan on continuing my studies in Germany's language for many years till I am fluent and able to communicate with the natives. For now, I shall not attempt translating any of my studied languages into English or Albanian and vice versa, though I will do transliteration since I am confident that I know Cyrillic well. I can read and write in the Russian variation of Cyrillic really well, but I think I'm good in the other versions, as well. (I learned all the variations of Cyrillic like Bulgarian, Belarusian, Ukrainian, etc.)
-I try to learn languages through films with subtitles, music, literary texts, soccer/football matches, news, etc., although those are not the only way I try to learn; I make notes, as well.
-I will try to eventually try transcribing things, but when I add a new song, the credits will be in my "submitter's comments", to give recognition/credit to the lyrics.
-I very much appreciate the hard work people put into translating. Please press "Thanks!" to show your gratitude. Motivation takes people and yourself a long way.
-Please notify me if I have made an error in a translation. I will fix it automatically to make it more accurate and precise.
-Also, please read my copyright notice/translations signature. I want to be credited for my work and if you do credit me, it will be much appreciated.
-I appreciate criticism very much and if I have made an in a certain translation or transliteration, please ring up on the comments on the page of my translation/transliteration and offer advice on how I can make the translation accurate.
-I rarely ever log out since I tend to be on here often (if I'm not busy with school/studying), so if it says I'm online, I'm online or I just didn't log out. Also, I am busy Monday through Friday (not so much Friday, but it's a school day anyways) and will be able to work on things either when I have time on the weekdays or weekend. You'll most likely have a request that you've given to me completed in the weekend since I want to stay with top grades and the only way I'll be able to do that is through studying during the weekdays.
Thank you for reading and happy translating!
