Mh, after carefully checking your credentials¹, I think I might actually upload the translation update.

It's an interesting language, to me it appears to be a mixture between Portuguese and Castillian with some distinct particularities. I can understand most of it, although there are some words which seem to be neither Portuguese nor Spanish. (e.g. baleiro, which is vazio/vacío)

Oh, besides writing my short monologue, I updated of course the translation and say thank you - Graças!

¹ Your Internet connection seems to be Galician, hence I conclude that you live in Galicia and speak Galician.

You are crazy  :D :D :D ;)  By that logic the Catalan is a mixture of Spanish and French.

The Galician and Portuguese were long ago one language very famous medieval poetry (I think it was called galaico-portuguese). It is no mixture of Spanish with Portuguese, only that the Spanish have much influence in the Galician unfortunately  :-\ .

The Galician like the Catalan are co-official languages of Spain in their respective communities.

Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. I'm well aware of the history of the Galician language, because Kry forced me once to read about it and I will never ever say dialect, because it *is* a distinct language.
But I can only compare to what I know and even though I don't understand everything, it's pretty easy to read Galician because many words are the similar in Portuguese and Castillian. The pronounciation is a different thing, because I don't even understand Portuguese spoken by a native speaker and I doubt I will understand any Galician...

But I actually say the same about Catalan and I mean, two friends of mine (French and Algerian-Belgian) and I have never studied any Catalan except for reading sings posted in Catalan and Castillian or the channel in the metro and we could watch the news in Barcelona TV and understand most of it - you can't deny that there are big similarities.

Euskera on the other hand is not similar to any other language (except for some words which have been introduced to the language in the past years), but the people I got to know from there are a bit ... strange.

Oh...too much off-topic again, sorry.

I'm really sorry, I didn't mean to say it in Portuguese. :(

I thought it was a Galizian and not a Portuguese word, because one says "Obrigado/a" and not "Graças". But now I know and won't make the same mistake twice. And I know it is a distinct language, although people who speak Galician understand Portuguese very well.

Just to check: "Moltes grácies" is Catalá, "Grazas" Galego, "Grazie mille" Italian, "Muchas gracias" Castillian, "Muito obrigado/graças" Portuguese and "Eskerrik asko" Euskara, although I've no clue how to pronounce it properly and people asked me whether this was Spanish (Castillian) when I said it.
Oh, and [musha grasia] (In pseudo-english phonetics, because I don't know how to type phonetic symbols without LaTex.) is Andaluz or just a badly spoken Spanish (like mine...).

You never say "graças" in portuguese, at least not in brazilian portuguese. You say "obrigado" if you are a male, and "obrigada" if you are a female.

Cheers!
