Ich Bin Ein Typ 1 Diabetiker....OR Mein name ist Kelly und ich bin ein Typ 1diabetiker

So, I found a sight that would be interesting for those of us who might be traveling in the next few months. A free online translator site called WorldLingo
cally, you just type or cut & paste what ever phrase, words, or documents you like translated into over 15 different languages.

I think it's a wonderful tool for many reasons, espe
cially for those of us who have to carry medical documents regarding our diabetes arsenal.

I think Jeff is aware of this site. Si
nce he told me "I rocked" in Portuguese on my last post, a big shout out goes out to godat! .

Here are aome "travel friendly phrases" that might help us out on global trips that Diabetesali
ciousness readers plan to take!

I'm only printing those languages that we could attempt to speak due to recognizable alpha characters.

Key Phrase number 1: "I'm a type 1 diabeti

French: Je suis un diabétique de type 1

German: Ich bin ein Typ 1 diabetiker - Er aah, kind a makes me want to say in a thi
ck B-aston accent, "Ich bin ein Berliner "

Italian: Sono un diabetico di tipo 1

Portuguese: Eu sou um tipo 1 diabetic
Spanish: Soy un diabético del tipo 1
ch: Ik ben een type 1diabeticus - Ok, I'm dying to say "I'm Diabeticus!"

Swedish: Förmiddag I en diabetiker för typ 1 - OK - Ever watch the movie "Splash"? I'm thinking about the scene when John Candy's
chactor, speaks Swedish to the gaurds. He impresses them with certain phrases regading "body measurements" he learned by watching Swedish "Art" films. That's all I'm saying!

Key Phrase Number 2: "I'm a diabeti
c, I need to get to a pharmacy or Dr. immediately!"

Key phrase number 3 : "Ex
cuse me, do you know where the bathroom is?"
ch: M'excusez-vous, savez-vous où la salle de bains est ?

German: Mich, entschuldigen Sie wissen, wo das Badezimmer ist?

Hi Kelly.

Yet another great service to the D.O.C. you have provided!

I just hope I never have to do "carb math" in another language.

Jeff -
Glad u like - thanks for thanks for the inspiration. Looking back,
I probably should have gone w/ "Diabeticus" as the post title. But I wasn't sure how many people would actually get the "Spartacus" reference. Plus, the German phrase really reminded me of JFK's famous"Ich Bin Ein Berliner "speech/Simpson's reference and shout out to Mayor Quimbly play on words!
