I love this thread! Well done Roger.
I can translate French.
English is main tongue. I speak forms of UK and Australian English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Swedish and both forms of Norwegian (I am trying to learn Swedish and both forms of Norwegian due to being a full Norwegian citizen by Marriage).
I can translate form spanish to english or english to spanish.
Im from Colombia; in most the schools now, they teach English.

I'm an anglophone. Grew up taking the second languages of French and Spanish. Lost them both, however, so I am no good to you all whatsoever.
I'm into conlanging (studying and developing constructed languages, e.g. Esperanto), though. w00t!
I'm a native speaker of German.
I have no problem translating German to English and vice-versa.
I guess my English is quite fluent though I have to get used to all the medical terms of course.
For about 10 years I've been on english-speaking messageboards and I watch movies and tv-shows in English so my English is a bit more than school-English.
I also speak Spanish.
By the definition of the european foreign language certification my level is about B1.
Maybe a bit below...
I can read and understand it quite well and write and speak Spanish though my grammar is not perfect... but people usually get what I mean
And if I listen real hard I can also understand stuff on TV in spanish or songs.
My husband is a native speaker of German and Spanish so he could help me.
I'm also surprised no american wrote that they speak Spanish.
But being of 'hispanic' origin probably a complicated situation in the US. (Again: mainly clisheés from hollywood and american media here.)
I speak Finnish as a native language so I can translate English to Finnish and other way around I also know some Swedish.
Hi, I speak n read Spanish
I am a native German speaker. I read, speak and write French and some Italian. I can read Spanish.
I only speak English. But, I do know ASL(American Sign Language). But, that won't be of any help on here.....
