translations needed
August 5, 2008 6:46 AM   Subscribe

Please help me with a fun multilingual translation? Quick and easy, all languages needed.

How to say "I hate Americans and American culture," but substitute the nationality of the language it is spoken in? So, like, "I hate Swedes and Swedish culture" in Swedish, etc etc. Every language is needed and valued here, no matter how small or insignificant it is in the greater scheme of things.

This is for a little web gimmick I am working on. Don't worry, your research will only be used for the forces of good.

American:
"I hate Americans and American culture."
English:
"I hate the English and English culture."
Australian:
"I hate Aussies and Australian culture."
Canadian:
"I hate Canucks and Canadian culture."
or
"Je deteste les Quebecois et la culture Quebecoise."
New Zealand:
"I hate Kiwis and New Zealand culture."
Italian:
"Odio gli Italiani e la coltura italiana."
French:
"Je deteste les Francais et la culture francaise."
And for Spanish I think it is:
"Odio los espanolos y la cultura espanola."

Hope that helps! And I don't have any accents and such in there, but maybe someone better than me will correct them.

Luxembourgish:

Should the need arise I could ask friends for Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Latvian, Dutch, Cantonese, Hungarian, Czech, Polish, Hebrew, Yiddish & Greek but I'm sure there will be others who can provide this more quickly than me.

A small correction on the above Spanish list: shoudl be venezolanos, venezolana (as opposed to venezuelanos). Also, for Ecuador it's ecuatorianos, ecuatoriana.

My contribution, also in Spanish: Odio a los puertorriqueños y la cultura puertorriqueña.

Funny, it really bugged me to type that (being Puerto Rican and all)!

Correction: "Odio a los..." , in Spanish.

You could also use "y a la cultura ...", but that's not mandatory. The first 'a' is, however.
