    translation

    Hi, I am trying to translate a text for my boss. I don't know how to translate it, can you help me, please?
    The text in my own language is: water hot, apple and nutty = water shall mean alcohol, hot - I guess not temperature hot but hot like alcohol - strong maybe, apple and nut shall be flavours
    I believe this shall be about alcohol type Nocino
    Thank you heaps

    Re: translation

    I don't understand what you're trying to do. Is the piece you are trying to translate a description of an alcoholic drink called "Nocino".

    Remember that you must end every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: translation

    I believe this should be written on a card that will accompany the drink/drinks - the drinks will be Christmas presents. The translation I gave you: water hot, apple and nutty is word-for-word translation. The drink shall be something like Nocino.
    Thank you

    Re: translation

    What type of alcohol is used in the drink? Nocino is frequently made with vodka and walnuts. If that is the case, you could say "Walnut and apple-flavored vodka."

    Re: translation

    Whatever the other flavourings are, it's definitely important to say what the main alcohol is (and, indeed, to make sure people know it's alcoholic).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
