    Translation Needed!!

    Hi guys,

    If there are any native or somewhat fluent Serbo-Croat speakers in these parts, it would be awesome if someone were to translate the following from English to Serbo-Croat.

    I'm trying to reach mainly Bosnians and probably also Serbs. You can use Cyrillic or Latin script, whichever is relevant/reaches the widest audience.

    Here it is:

    Hullo!

    I'm native Serbian speaker and I'll give you Serbian translation both in Cyrillic and Latin Letters. I won't try to put it in Jekavian/Ikavian dialect (Croatian/Bosnian) because my Ekavian (Serbian) may sneak in . Anyway, all the Serbo-Croatian speakers will understand the text, no worries. If you can't find a person to translate it to Croatian, I'll try to imitate Croatian - just for you.

    I won't translate it literally, but to convey the sense of the original, and to sound "natural" in our language.
    I wrote you, not very formal You.

    Serbian - Српски/Srpski

    You're welcome. Here, I've composed something in Croatian, I hope I chose the right combination of words (the same as Serbian, they just combine some other words in their sentences). Just to mention that the Latin letter is in use in Croatia and Bosnia, only Bosnian Serbs use Cyrillic.

    Good luck!
