    GreeceSelect-005: Ποιο είναι το σχέδιο (pronounced "pio eine to shedio," means "what is the plan." for anyone actually pronouncing these, "shedio" is not pronounced with a "sh" sound, Greek doesn't really have sh sounds. the s and the h are pronounced separately.)
    GreeceSelect-006: ναι; (the ";" signifies it is being asked, as a question. pronounced "neh," literally means "yes?" interestingly, "neh" is less formal than greek "oriste" which also means "yes?")
    GreeceSelect-007: Τι διατάζετε (pronounced "ti diatazete," literally means "what are you ordering," but you wouldn't hear it being used in a restaraunt. these kinds of orders are διαταγες, not restaraunt orders. so it roughly translates to "your orders?" like the other languages)

    GreeceOrder-005: Πείτε ότι έγινε (pronounced "piteh oti eyineh," means "assume that it's done". The literal way of thinking is: "I will do it right away, so, assume that it's already done)
    GreeceOrder-006: Πολύ καλά (pronounced "poli kala," means "very good")
    GreeceOrder-007: Φύγαμε (pronounced "figame," means literally "we left" or "we're gone", in other words, "let's go")

    I don't think that those are correct. IDK for sure, as I'm still learning spanish, but I think that the first should be "No hay problema" and the second "Que necesita usted?"

    Hay espanol hablantes aqui?

    I'm French and I almost never play as France but I can tell you there are some mistakes with some French lines.

    Considérez ce travail accompli!

    "Select002: Dit moi que j’eu faire! (Tell me what to do!)"

    It depends on the dialect, and what question is being answered.

    "Sea" might have been a more generic choice, or even just "", but there are so many choices. Gaeilge is rather funny in that there is no actual "Yes" and "No" (Well, words for them, anyway...)

    Since I am Greek, I would like to make some corrections to our language translations. (consider this as constructive criticism, I mean no offense)


    1) The word "πίτε" is actually spelled "πείτε" and we read ει (ei) as ι (ee) 99% of the time.

    2)The phrase "πείτε ότι έγινε" is used mostly as "assume that it's done". The literal way of thinking is: "I will do it right away, so, assume that it's already done".

    3)The word "φύγαμε" literally indeed means "we're gone"/ "we left" but in this situation we use it as : "let's go".

    4)GreeceOrder-009 is actually "Μπορείτε να βασιστείτε πάνω μας", pronounced "Borite na vasistite pano mas" meaning "You can rely on us".
    (assume that every "i" is pronounced as "ee" here).

    5)We always use accents on every word that is over 1 syllable (with little exception).
    Inform me if you can't correct every word yourself so I will do it for you.

    Thanks for the info Jamescivfan. I'm not a native Greek speaker and I got my lines from the other thread. You should tell the person about his/her mistakes. Also, accents on the words will be appreciated.:)

    No problem :goodjob:, but please give me the link of the other thread so I can post the corrections there too.

    The correct phrases are the following:

    GreeceSelect-000: Διατάξτε (pronounced "diatakste," means "order [us, or me]")
    GreeceSelect-001: Στις διαταγές σας (pronounced "stis diatayes sas," means "at your service" or literally "at your orders")
    GreeceSelect-002: Πείτε μου τι να κάνω (pronounced "pite mou ti na kano," means "tell me what to do")
    GreeceSelect-003: Περιμένω οδηγίες (pronounced "perimeno odiyee-es," means "i'm waiting for orders")
    GreeceSelect-004: Έτοιμοι για δράση (pronounced "etimi yia drasi," means "ready for action" like other languages
    GreeceSelect-005: Ποιο είναι το σχέδιο (pronounced "pio eine to shedio," means "what is the plan." for anyone actually pronouncing these, "shedio" is not pronounced with a "sh" sound, Greek doesn't really have sh sounds. the s and the h are pronounced separately.)
    GreeceSelect-006: ναι; (the ";" signifies it is being asked, as a question. pronounced "neh," literally means "yes?" interestingly, "neh" is less formal than greek "oriste" which also means "yes?")
    GreeceSelect-007: Τι διατάζετε (pronounced "ti diatazete," literally means "what are you ordering," but you wouldn't hear it being used in a restaraunt. these kinds of orders are διαταγες, not restaraunt orders. so it roughly translates to "your orders?" like the other languages)
    GreeceSelect-008: Τι χρειάζεστε (pronounced "ti hriazeste," literally means "what do you need")
    GreeceSelect-009: Όλοι παρόντες και έτοιμοι (pronounced "oli parontεs ke etimi," means "all present and ready")
    GreeceOrder-000: Όπως διατάξτε (pronounced "opos diatakste," means "however you order")
    GreeceOrder-001: Φύγε (pronounced "fiye," means "go" or literally "leave")
    GreeceOrder-002: Βεβαίως (pronounced "veveos," means "of course")
    GreeceOrder-003: Αφήστε το πάνω μας (pronounced "afiste to pano mas," literally means "leave it on top of us," means "leave it to us")
    GreeceOrder-004: Κανένα πρόβλημα (pronounced "kanena provlima," means "no problem")
    GreeceOrder-005: Πείτε ότι έγινε (pronounced "piteh oti eyineh," means "assume that it's done". The literal way of thinking is: "I will do it right away, so, assume that it's already done)
    GreeceOrder-006: Πολύ καλά (pronounced "poli kala," means "very good")
    GreeceOrder-007: Φύγαμε (pronounced "figame," means literally "we left" or "we're gone", in other words, "let's go")
    GreeceOrder-008: Ας ξεκινήσουμε (pronounced "ahs ksekinisoume," means "let's get going")
    GreeceOrder-009: "Μπορείτε να βασιστείτε πάνω μας", pronounced "Borite na vasistite pano mas" meaning "You can rely on us"


    PS. Some general side notes: I used capital letters on every first letter of each phrase because like many other languages, when we start a sentence the first letter is always capital. We always use accents to avoid mistaking two similar words with different meanings. For example, the word "δουλειά" (pronounced thouleeA, "th" pronounced as in the word "then") means "work/job". The word "δουλεία" (pronounced thoulEE-a, "th" pronounced as in the word "then") means "slavery". Hope that helped.

    EDIT Jun 19th 2012:
    I put most of these on civ's wikia but am using this post as a bit of a workspace hence recent edits to it. I've been learning a bit more Irish since I made this post, originally I only had my mostly forgotten school education working behind it. Hopefully there's improvement.

    I should probably mention that the 'Gaelic' qualifier is unnecessary/redundant in the case of Irish (and Manx) just as you don't say "Welsh British". Some Irish speakers will refer to it as 'Gaelic' in English because it is close to Gaeilge, the Irish name for itself.

    My Irish is pretty weak so I'll probably run this topic by somebody fluent/semi-fluent at a later stage if possible. Maybe you can put up with my shoddy translations and transcriptions for some of the Celt sayings.

    Order000 - De réir mar is mian leat - 'According to your wish'/'as you wish'
    Order001 - Druid amach - Move out
    Order002 - Cinnte déarfadh - Certainly would say (alt. I was given 'cinnte dearfach' which is some double affirmative which isn't atypical of Irish, however I don't hear 'ch' at the end and given how the lines are read I would have expected it. It's a bit of a toss-up to me here)

    Order003 - Táimid in a bun - 'We are in progress' [Táimid in a bun' actually translates to 'We are in the base/origin/bottom' but I assumed they meant 'Táimid in ar bun' which corresponds to that phrase. Also 'Táimid' might be 'Tá muid' which sounds almost exactly the same and means the same thing 'we are']
    Order004 - Fadhb ar bith! - No Problem [more lit. 'problem exists' though this is a short form of the phrase 'Níl fadhb ar bith' - No problem exists]
    Order005 - Is beag nach bhfuil sé déanta againn - There is little we haven't done. [Originally I confused 'beag nach' - 'little that's not' for 'beagnach' - 'almost', I'm only now realising 'bhfuil' requires a particle rendering the first interpretation ungrammatical]
    Order006 - Tá go maith - (It's good/well)/OK/fine/Grand
    Order007 - As go brách linn - Off we go [Dictionary gives this, but taking its components literally doesn't make much sense so it seems idiomatic. (as-out of/from/off, go brách - ever, linn-with us)]
    Order008 - Bogaimis - We were moving (alternatively he might be saying something like 'bogadh bis', which if it's even sensible Irish isn't directly translatable)
    Order009 - Is feidir leat brath orainn - You can depend on us
    Select000 - i láthair ar fad - all present [more lit. in location in extent]
    Select001 - Ag an lámh agat - at your hand [more lit. at the hand you have]
    Select002 - Inis dom céard atá le déanamh agam - Tell me what must be done by me.
    Select003 - Ag folacht le huachtanna uait - Waiting on wills/'testaments' from you, not sure if uachtanna is the word.
    Select004 - Tá uainn(?) is an *something* againn - [No idea - apparently the accent is just a bit too thick here. It seems like 'We need and have *something* but can't find a word that would ever make this like 'ready for action']
    Select005 - Cad é an plean? - What's the plan?
    Select006 - Sea? - Yes [Contracted 'is ea' literally 'it is' - used as 'yes' for a response to certain kinds of classification or identification questions. Outside of that it's considered an Englishism (Béarlachas)]
    Select007 - Tá cuid orduithe? - Some commands?
    Select008 - Céard atá ag teastáil uait? - What do you need?

    Ran this by a couple of people with better Irish than me. The exaggerated accents make some words hard to understand, and supposedly some of the phrasing is a bit wonky which probably has to do with people directly translating.
