Hey guys, Quick query regarding the following rem statement.'ZET BEESTEN OP HET SCHERM'
Google translates it as 'PUTS ANIMALS ON THE SCREEN'
This makes sense but is it accurate in translation or is it constructed slightly better in normal use ?

Thanks Guys.

If these animals are important for the game, they may be enemies or NPC's. How about 'Spawn enemies', or 'Spawn NPC's' ?

if these beasts are just decorative, then who cares anyway. Smile

Beesten translates to beasts. Animals is dieren in Dutch. Like in English, the former is a more crude way to refer to animals.

I guess the most suitable translation, as per the original author's most probable intentions, would be: "PUT CREATURES ON THE SCREEN". IIRC, this text is from Jake in the Caves.

Thanks Guys, If you all don't mind can you also translate this for me. "Help Jake met het pakken van kuikens, maar pas op ! Er schuilen vele gevaren." "als u een van de volgende voorwerpen aantaakt dan verliestu 1 van uw 4 levens : driehoek, vogel, beest en het vallende ei."

Help Jack to get all the chicks, but beware! There are many dangers. When you touch one of the following objects, you will lose one of your 4 lives: triangle, bird, beast and the falling egg.

Google Translate says:
"Help Jake catch the chicks, but watch out! There are many dangers lurking." "If you touch any of the following objects you will lose 1 of your 4 lives: triangle, bird, beast and the falling egg."

Well, Google may be even better than what I can do... wow. Better use that one, I guess. Although with the 'beasts', see previous posts.
