And I can help with Danish/English translations. I'm not expecting a flood of requests on this one  ;)

Hi

Thanks for that razor but wonder if other languages should be added from the Indian subcontinent. As I've seen other names in some brands.

Regards

Hi Guy's

Yeah, I think Punjabi would be useful, I.E, Jeera(Hindi) Zeera(Punjabi) = Cumin.

The two that I've listed as something "or" something are infact Hindi and Punjabi respectively.

Glad it's of some use though :)

This Bengali online translator seems pretty good. http://www.bengali-dictionary.com/english-bengali-words-phrases-contents.html

I had thought that my local was Bengali but they call cumin Zeera, is that definitely Punjabi?

I believe it to be Axe, that's not to say that it isn't Bengali either though!  Just think of Italian & Spanish, quite similar in some respects
