    Better still, translate imported tubeless tyre to Afrikaans and I think it becomes ingevoorde binneloose buiteband or an imported innerless outer band

    Ingevoerde binnebandlose buiteband.

    Or translate directly into afrikaans. I eat cake and biscuits myself!
    But back to the OP. The spring has sprung, leave the leaf spring, where it sprang!

    Ah Peter, the direct translation would be, "Ek eet koek en beskuit myself".

    But the correct Afrikaans translation would be, "Ek eet self koek en beskuit".

    For Estee, the official translation for a starter motor is a knormoer. I went through the schooling system in a dual medium class, all the way to matric. One week English, next week Afrikaans.

    As the translation is mentioned so many times I used Google translate leaf spring to Finnish and back.

    It works fine BUT the Finnish result is actually leaf like in the tree plus spring like a season before summer

    Basically tree leaf during the spring.

    We had a German sales man who made sales offers using dictionary English. One sentence per paragraph. Many Leave Springs

    My first trip to Germany: Lets go to casino to eat. Please put this paper to map 10.

    I saw locally really bad translations during the political campaign for the vote before the change over. Afrikaans to English. You needed a dictionary.

    Interesting subject.

    Isn't a leave spring a leaf spring that has broken and departed from under the vehicle?

    From this hallowed hall....

    dual leave springs...

    However, even some of the large caravans also have spring kits which can be fitted by replacing the stock springs with LEAF sizes. There are two possibilities... If the vehicle you are getting into has been left unfinished, an unfinished vehicle leaves springs and caster bearings loose and ineffective. Any drift on a left-hand side can mean a roll into the wind and lose two gears in no time. By keeping the axle relative to the centre of gravity, when the wheels are turned in a turn, the force exerted on the caster bearings does not vary. This means that as the wheels...

    I also just felt I was being left out... and with know actual knowledge or insight into the subject that matters... I had to get some help with my post here... https://talktotransformer.com/
