    Hello. There's one comment on my profile, that you posted last night. Do you mean that one, or a reply to my one?

    If you posted again, it's not showing up on my profile.

    EDIT: now it is!

    I meant your comment in my profile and my comment before was an answer. Nice to see you here. Do you really think that your plan works in an multilingual forum? are you sure there are enough members who speak French and want to help to translate a text? then I will begin with!

    Are you the helper from the German Learners' Society?
    I think you and Grizzlybär used to answer some of my very basic questions last year?

    Jetzt kann ich viel besser Deutsch sprechen! Aber mein Grammatik habe ich noch nicht verbessert! haha :cool:

    As you may suppose! here is the text which I have found. I would love to understand it. I hope that your French grammar is good enough for translation.

    C'est mon ami, Bibi
    Quel beau bibifoc
    Il est super gentil
    Comme un bébé phoque
    Quand j'ai besoin de lui
    J'appelle Bibifoc
    Si son bibeep fait bop
    Il fonce droit dans la vie

    {Refrain:}
    Bibi bibi bibi bibifoc
    Dans l'Antarctique
    T'es l'roi des phoques
    Bibi bibi bibi bibifoc
    Ton amitié
    Dure comme le roc

    Il est super branché
    Pour lui rien d'impossible
    C'est un vrai passionné
    Qui veut l'inaccessible
    Dans l'univers glacé
    Pays des Esquimaux
    Grâce à notre amitié
    Son coeur est bien au chaud

    {au Refrain}

    Quand on appelle Bibi
    Il est toujours là
    En descendant la vie
    Il fonce vers toi
    Dans le bleu des glaciers
    Il nous fait tous rêver
    A la chasse aux méchants
    Il est toujours gagnant

    It is an opening lyrics to one of my favorite cartoons in my childhood. I would be very thankful, if you are able to translate the lyrics.

    I'm sure that I gave some answers to your questions in terms of German grammar last year. But I don't help members very often, as I'm not so good to explain German, although or precisely because it is my native language.

    I'm not really feeling worthy of worship after chickening out of my Danish oral a week or so ago.

    It feels so weird to finally have a job and stuff. I found my Danish health insurance card waiting for me in the letterbox when we got back from the airport today too. It just seems too good to be true. I'm bound to get very restless very soon...

    it's my friend, Bibi
    What a beautiful bibifoc
    like a baby seal
    when I have need of him
    I call Bibifoc
    if his [bibeep?] does the bop
    he charges right into my life

    Bibi, bibi, bibi, bibifoc
    in the Antarctic
    You are the king of the seals
    Bibi, bibi, bibi bibifoc
    your friendship
    firm1 as a rock

    1or lasts like a rock

    That's all so far. I don't know any French phrases or idioms, so it might be a trifle literal!

    Is bibifoc his name, or is it just short for bébé phoque? (J'adore le mot 'phoque' <3)

    This song sounds amazing. Or rather, reads amazingly. I haven't youtubed it (yet).

    My guess is that the foc in bibifoc is actually phoque?

    Eh, I'm bent down now, I may as well continue now I can't get up.

    Random question, but does it get warm and sunny during the summer? That probably sounds really really stupid, but does it have a nice climate in Denmark or is it decidedly British?

    I think it's probably both! But I haven't finished reading the wiki.fr article on the Bibifoc series!

    If I translate the text into German, then google translator is useless (too bad grammar), but if I translate it into English, then it works quite good. Thanks!

    Damn is German too difficult to translate, even for translation software?
