Serbian language:

Language names start with small letter, not capital letter.

"Говорим Српски" is obviously wrong. Also, Afrikaans is not "афрички", language of Africa and Africans in general, but "африканерски", language of Afrikaners, a particular ethnicity. Term "африканс" can be used, but it's an anglicism and a recent addition to our language, so it's maybe less obvious it's a language and to which ethnic group it belongs.

Adding "језик", "the language" after the name of the language is wordy and formal, so unless it isn't obvious you're referring to a language, it's omitted, unless you're using formal language.

"Регрутација" is too term strictly for military conscription, and can't be used even if company in question is bodyguard company or offer similar security related services. It's better to use word "врбовање", which is appropriate for recruitment into military, getting employees and enlisting in some political party or other cause. Other term, "запошљавање" can be used, it means "employment", "getting a job" or "giving jobs".

So "врбовање" and "запошљавање" are both appropriate.

Corporate - English recruitment(врбовање на енглеском)
Corporate - German recruitment(врбовање на немачком)
Corporate - Russian recruitment(врбовање на руском)
Corporate - Japanese recruitment(врбовање на јапанском)
Help - Japanese Help(помоћ на јапанском)
Help - English Help(помоћ на енглеском)
Help - German Help(помоћ на немачком)
Help - Russian Help(помоћ на руском)

"Recruitment" alone is "врбовање" (or "запошљавање" if you decide to use it instead), and help "помоћ".

Languages - Arabic (арапски)

I will add, capitalizing the name of the language ("Арапски" instead of "арапски") is possible, but it looks odd, because we capitalize it only in the beginning of the sentence. Also, I've noticed Serbian wikipedia uses "африкански" instead of "африканерски" as title for Afrikaans language article which is wrong because it's just another, rarely used form of "афрички", an adjective with meaning "belonging to Africa" or "belonging to Africans", in the same manner as "мексикански" is rare form of "мексички" and "американски" rare form of usual "амерички".

RUSSIAN LANGUAGE:

Note that "ий" is similar extension to the English "ish / ese / ian", implying "language of..."
So "Японский" (Japanese) is a language of "Япония" (Japan)
There are a few exceptions to this rule, which are often ignored in slang for the grammatically incorrect versions.

Also note that "Язык" means "Language" and could be used as "Японский язык", although the inherent property of "ий" makes this redundant.

I'd like to correct above poster on that line :

Languages - Czech/Slovak (Чехословацкий)

Чехословацкий(Czechoslovakian) would be actually language of Czechoslovakia, but such language does not exist, nor such state anymore. Czech and Slovak are two different (althrough very similar, so it acutally valid to put them into same chat room) languages
correct form in russian shoild be
Languages - Czech/Slovak (Чешский/Словацкий)

also this line makes no sense to me how Slovenian can refer to Slovakia :
Quote:
Languages – Slovenian (Словацкий) – refers to country “Slovakia”

it does acutally refer to country "Slovenia" and the correct form is :
Languages - Slovenian(Словенский)

which also means this is wrong too:
Quote:
Languages – Slovenian (Словянский) – refers to “Slovenian” language from the Indo-European family

this probably shouldn't be there at all. it has grammar error in it anyway
to refer Indo-European language family, which are "Slavic" and their language is Slavic or Slavonic but not Slovenian, Славянский should be used

also
Quote:
Languages – Finnish (Финляндский) – directly translated as “Finlandian”

Финляндский язык(Finlandian language) does not exist. Финский is the only correct form

One of the things to be aware is that not everyone is doing a perfect translation but instead use a slang/street version of it(wich can be different within several regions of the same country)

A little example sthe Afrikaans language use the right word and very few will know wich means in spanish as much they'll think on african or african related

Oesday anyoneway eakspay Igpay Atinlay?

Pronounced as:
Oes-day anyone-way eak-spay Ig-pay Atin-lay?

English Translation:
Does anyone speak Pig Latin?


Pig Latin is a language game of alterations played in English. The object is to conceal the meaning of the words from other people not familiar with the rules. There are many dialects and forms of Pig Latin which vary from region to region, country to country, and language to language, as well as other similar, and dissimilar, Pig Latin-like 'languages'. The dialect shown here tends to hail from California/West Coast of the United States.

To form the Pig Latin form of an English word the first consonant (or consonant cluster) is moved to the end of the word and an ay is affixed (for example, pig yields ig-pay and computer yields omputer-cay). The reference to Latin is a deliberate misnomer, as it is simply a form of jargon, used only for its English connotations as a "strange and foreign-sounding language."

Basically, the Pig Latin system used here works as follows:

Words that start with a vowel (A, E, I, O, U) simply have "WAY" appended to the end of the word.
Words that start with a consonant have all consonant letters up to the first vowel moved to the end of the word (as opposed to just the first consonant letter), and "AY" is appended. ('Y' is counted as a vowel in this context)




Rules and variations

The usual rules for changing standard English into Pig Latin are as follows:

In words that begin with consonant sounds, the initial consonant or consonant cluster is moved to the end of the word, and "ay" is added, as in the following examples:
happy → appy-hay
question → estion-quay
In words that begin with vowel sounds or silent consonants, the syllable "way" is simply added to the end of the word. In some variants, the syllable "ay" is added, without the "w" in front. Sometimes the vowel will be moved and followed by the syllable "hay."
another→ another-way, another-ay, nother-ahay
about→ about-way, about-ay, bout-ahay
In compound words or words with two distinct syllables, each component word or syllable is sometimes transcribed separately. For example: birdhouse would be ird-bay-ouse-hay.

Transcription varies. A hyphen or apostrophe is sometimes used to facilitate translation back into English. Ayspray, for instance, is ambiguous, but ay-spray means "spray" whereas ays-pray means "prays."




At'sthay ymay otway ISKWAY addedway.
(At's-thay y-may o-tway ISK-WAY added-way.)


Translation = That's my two ISK added.

Yes, and no. It's possible to use a translator program, but slang and cultural idiom in most current translation programs come out as 'word salad' and make very little sense.

Finnish (language) translates better as suomi (without capital letter if it doesn't need it for some other reason like dot) instead of suomen kieli.

Form suomen kieli is used if you want to make distinction between nation and language if it doesn't show in other way. Mentioning word kieli is especially useless if you want to save space :P

I think, you guys don't understand, what you've been asked for.
Or the OP don't understand his own task.
The "YYYY" part must remain in the language the "XXXX" part refers to. Thus, no "Help - English (Помощь на английском)" is allowed. It's strictly the opposite - "Помощь на английском (Help)".

And for that, "Помощь на русском" better don't have "(YYYY)" part at all, to not looks stupid.
