Word of the day – Luck

I’m going to pare this way down to:
English Irish German Dutch Chinese and Japanese Spanish Latin and Vietnamese on the translations unless I get requests for others.
English Irish German Dutch : Because that’s my heritage
Chinese: Because it’s part of my sons heritage and it’s a root language for
Japanese: which I'm learning so I can read their magazines and because it’s so different from here.
Spanish: Because 3 kids in the family are trying to learn it.
Vietnamese: For a friend who knows some of it.
Latin: Because some languages use it as their root language my main focus is learning japanese right now so it will lead the way.
