Hi,

I was wondering what is the French or German for "Marked Deck".

Many thanks,

Danny

Using two translators I got Le pont a marqué for "marked deck" in French and Cartes marquées for "marked cards." Markiert Kartenspiel is German for marked deck of cards. I don't think deck translates. In German you could also say Gezinkten Karten which is just marked cards.

Hope this helps.

Actually gezinkte Karten, no 'n' at the end of 'gezinkte'.

Thank you! So "not marked cards" would be "Nicht gezinkte Karten"....is that correct?

Best wishes,

Danny

You could say the cards are not marked like this: "Die Karten sind nicht markiert."

G'day Danny

I have been working on a presentation of the "6 card repeat" routine with inspiration from both Bill Abbot and Mel Mellers instructional DVDs.

Part of the concept is do the card counting using different languages.

In the process of determining which languages to use I came across an excellent internet tool called "Google translate" - you just Google - "Google translate" and you are all set to go - it opens a page with 2 boxes - you simply write the word you want translated in the left box and choose the language to translate it into in right hand box and away you go. It even has an option to listen to the word or phrase being spoken so you can get it correct.

I decided to include an intergalactic language in my routine but "Google translate" did not have an option for the "Star Trek" language for "Klingon" but I found some other sites and "you tube" options.

All the best with your research and resulting performances.

I'm half german and my relatives says Gezinkte Karten for 'Signed Cards' or 'Gezinktes Kartenspiel' for 'marked deck.
But also 'Markierte Karten' is ok, everyone in Germany will understand it!
