Cabin Pressure Resource: International Yellow Car
Yellow Car in Lots of Languages
(a compiled reference for the Cabin Pressure fandom)


Just in case someone else hasn't already done this, here's a list of what "Yellow Car!" is in every nearly language Google Translate offers (not included are the few my own computer doesn't have a charset for.) I was looking up a bunch for a story, so I figured why not look them all up and post them.

The placement or existence of exclamation points may be wrong in a few languages, and I have no clue how to pronounce many of these. If anyone who speaks or knows these languages has a correction or addition, post it in the comments. I did try to look it up in Klingon, Vulcan, Romulan, and Tolkien Elvish, but no luck.

Anything that shows up as boxes is a character set your computer doesn't have enabled.

Neat!

Incidentally, the Persian transliterates to "mashan zerd" (according to http://mylanguages.org/dari_romanization.php).

Whew! for a second I thought I'd deleted you! LJ marked your comment as spam. O.o

Thanks for the transliteration, I've added it, with credit.
