Would you be willing to help us learn about your native language? Your help would be most appreciated!

It takes about 30 minutes and it’s very easy: All we ask is that you translate a short story with 20 simple sentences.

We are especially interested in languages originating in places other than Europe.

Click here to translate the story from English into your native language.

Or do you prefer to translate the story starting from a different language? We have surveys with versions of the story in the following languages:

Note: We will never share your name or any other personal information with anyone without your explicit permission. The translations we collect will be made public only in an anonymized form for scientific and educational purposes.

This kind of information is usually not covered in grammatical descriptions so your help is very valuable!

Thanks very much for your contribution to science!

Please contact us if you have any questions.
