View Full Version : Help writing papiamentu

I think you can help me get the full subtitles (in papiamentu language) of this video (2 minutes) :
It's a speech from a girl commemorating bonaire's day.

I don't know how to write correctly, but some of the sentences are like:
den bariga di mi mama ja mi a sinti... foi prome k mi kumensa gatiha ...
papiamentu komo lengua di instrukshon ta un fuente pa ...
bo proprio idioma ... ta kualifika papiamento menos importante ...
nos papiamento merece un mihor trato ... skribi , kanta , rap ,
proklama na papiamentu , aktua y eduka na papiamentu ...
mi nka pretende dita un papiamentista, mutu menos 1 linguista ...
ngosta sigur kada dia y tudu momentu no konsigi promove nos tuxi papiamentu...

Can someone correct and complete the subtitles please?

Please post in English..much easier to do than make corrections. Happy to help.

The problem is that I don't know how to speak neither write papiamentu.

What I wrote is just a sketch based in the sounds I hear from the video, what I would like to find is
someone that knows how to write papiamentu to transcribe correctly what the girl is saying.

Then I would happily translate to english using: http://www.donamaro.nl/papiamentu/

Thanks for answering.
