    Hello, I am learning basque and need a guide for prononciation. Your above dictionary finds the words, but the prononciation does not work as you tell that we have to click on the word. So can you check what is wrong?

  • Translation and how does it sound

    Dears, I am preparing a speech for the wedding of my son next saturday June 29. In one sentence I would like to welcome the family of his promised coming from Bilbao in the basque language. Here is the sentence in french: "Vous êtes venus très nombreux du Pays Basaue. Nous sommes touchés par votre solidarité familiale". Could you please kindly provide me the translation in basque? Then I'll try to find the good pronunciation on your site. Alternative might be that I phone somebody who could read the translation for me over the phone. Jacques Mathieu 0473927567
