    How do you say these two phrases, which are quite useful in a message board, in your language?

    Desde já agradeço. ;)

    In Russian:
    Thanks in advance = Заранее спасибо (Zaranee spasibo)
    Thank you = Спасибо or, less frequently, Спасибо вам/Вам/тебе.
  6. In French you could say "D'avance, merci" or "Merci d'avance", or just plain "Merci".

    In Turkish I know you can say "Simdiden tesekkürler", literally "from now, thanks". You can also use "sagol". Sorry, I don't have the accents on my keyboard.

    Z góry dzięki.

    Marga's version is more polite (more like thank you in advance).

    Merci par avance.

    This looks (sounds?) very similar to our tak which means yes. :)

    Well, if that word is pronounced with a short 'a', then I guess they're pronounced the same :)
    The two k's signify a short preceding vowel; if there only was one, it'd be pronounced with a long 'a' - which would mean 'roof' or 'ceiling' ;)

    I am from south korea. You can say '미리 감사드립니다'(mi-ri gam-sam-d-rip-ni-da) for 'Thank you in advance'. And '감사합니다'(gam-sa-hap-ni-da) for 'Thank you'. But those two sentences are pretty formal, so it's ok to say '고맙습니다'(go-map-sm-ni-da), which means 'Thanks' in every situation.

    sorry for lousy phonectic signs :(

    The phrases above are indeed correct.
    But there are a few other possibilities:

    Thanks in advance:
    - Dank bij voorbaat.
    - Alvast bedankt.

    Thank you:
    - Dank u (more formal than 'dank je')
    - Dank u wel (more formal)

    Outsider, could you please give the Portugal translations here as well? :)

    I assume Desde já agradeço stands for Thanks/thank you in advance but how about Thank you?

    Z góry dziękuję,
  23. Outsider Senior Member

    Portuguese (Portugal)
    "Thank you" is Obrigado if the speaker is a male, and Obrigada if the speaker is a female.

    Desde já agradeço is just one possible translation of "Thanks in advance". There are others, like (unoriginally) Agradeço desde já. :)
  24. Also: Заранее благодарю.

    I think one will usually find 'Thanks in advance' written as 'På forhånd takk'. It is pretty common in written form, but spoken it would sound rather formal. At least to my ears :)

    Thank you: Grazie
    Thank you in advance: Ti/La/Vi ringrazio in anticipo (sounds a little formal anyway. I think we usually say simply grazie in both cases)

    Personally, in Québec I think people use more "Merci en avance" Anglicism? Perhaps. But "Merci d'avance" sounds fine too.

    For a Québécois's ears "merci par avance" sounds awkward. Could be a Québec-France difference though.

    And, what about "thank you very much" in your language?

    I'm opening a new thread for that, here. I'd truly appreciate your help, guys...

    I'd rather say "Dank bij voorbaat". Adding "voorbaat" in front of the sentence sounds a bit odd to my Flemish ears. :)

    I often say plain "Merci" in informal situations or "Bedankt". I never say "Dank je wel" but I do use it in more formal conversations, eg. "Dank u wel!"
