Languages - Ukrainian (українська мова)
Here українська мова means Ukrainian language. If you'd rater have it without the language word, it would just be Українська
Whether to capitalize the first letter or not is up to you :) We don't capitalize these words (language names) if they go in the middle of a sentence

Excellent translation by Jowen, except for:

Afrikaans is a specific African language inspired by Dutch as far as I know. It has no Danish equivalent and would just be written 'Afrikaans'.

The word 'Afrikansk' simply means 'African' in Danish, which has a different meaning.

http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afrikaans




An added note since it may not be obvious from this context, languages are usually spelled lower case in Danish, but in a list like this it makes sense to capitalize.

Tom taler afrikaans. (Danish)
Tom speaks Afrikaans. (English)

Yes, this is correct. But "Langue" would be a better translation of "Language" if you need it in french.

Although the previous post in German is correct, the word "Rekrutierung" is a military term. Corporations in Germany do not recruit, they hire. A more generic term would be "Anstellung" (employment). Although probably no one will mind it, but military terms always have a certain bad tone due to specific historical reasons.

So the translations would be:
Corporate - German Recruitment (Rekrutierung) (military)
Corporate - German Recruitment (Anstellung) (generic)
Help - German Help (Hilfe)

The employee is indeed called "Angestellter" and not "Rekrut". However, in practice you are far more likely to find HR departments who call it "Rekrutierung", or "Personalakquise" at best, than "Anstellungen".

PS.: Even if it was only used in a military context it would be very fitting for eve, as there's pvp everywhere ;)

Explanation:
-> "French tongue" would translate as "langue Française"
-> but putting it the way you did, "Language - French" then translates to "Langage - Français" .

All this because nouns have a gender in french.....Roll

Regarding the Swedish translations given by Chribba:

Chribba wrote:
Swedish:
Languages - Afrikaans(Afrikanska)
Languages - Brazilian(Brasilianska)


After finding my old "swedish academic word list" I can now confirm that Afrikaans is spelled the same in Swedish as in English. Seriously Chribba this one was too obvious. ;)
If someone still don't believe me look at this screenshot:
http://i.imgur.com/z5qHJ.png

Brazilian is actually not a language, but if you really want to separate it from the Portugese you have to call it "Brazilian Portugese".

So the correct translations should be:

Languages - Afrikaans(Afrikaans)
Languages - Brazilian(Brasiliansk Portugisiska)

end note: languages actually dont have capital letters in a scentence in Swedish, however when used like you suggested I would still capitalize it.

As a semi-practiced speaker of Klingon, I'll give a brief guide to proper pronounciation:

First, speak Klingon boldly -- some of the words are hard to enunciate properly without putting a bit of force behind them (which makes it incredibly easy to call the captain of your vessel a 'house' by mistake).*

When saying a word like 'tlhIngan', the 'tlh' is created by lightly pressing your tongue against the front of your soft palate (directly behind the little half-circle ridge in the roof of your mouth) and speaking the letter 't'. The 'g' sound is soft, so you're aiming for a sound like 't-ling-on'.

If, for some wacky reason, you intend to go on with learning the language, you're probably going to want to carry a napkin -- the nature of speaking Klingon means that for the first while, you're inadvertantly going to be spitting as you talk. If you're really interested, there are Klingon dictionaries, a Klingon language tape, and Klingon translations of Macbeth, King Lear and the Bible.

*Not that there's anything wrong with having House as your captain, mind you.

I can't get rid of my darn signature!  Oh, wait....
