    I am a learner but I will try to translate, I translated for Croatian language ..
    I got 'we are in USA now'

    The native speakers can and will correct me. I figure at least trying is better as it helps me to understand better also.

    i apreciate that you tried but i think that "sad" means now (although i know that SAD means USA), and that "mi" comes from "meni", i just don't know what ža means (???????)... Maybe the short for žalostno?

    i think "we are in USA now" is "sad mi smo u SAD-u" (native correct me if im wrong)

    Smile me again ..

    lets see how badly I did this time. .

    ne - no/not
    desno - right
    evo - look!/There!
    telefon - telephone
    prilika - chance/opportunity
    ja - I
    sjena - shadow
    jesam - I am
    boja - colour
    more - sea
    plavo more - blue sea
    može - can

    is there a croatian or serbian word for ok? or is it same as english?
    Hvala ti puno to the person who corrects my mistakes!!

    The closest thing I can think of is
    "sad mi je žaO"
    Which means Now i regret it.

    Yep. That's all correct
    Though you can write "Sjena" or "Sjenka" (Sen or Senka in Serbian)
    and for Look! you can use Vidi!

    For OK we can say "u redu" , "dobro" or just "okej"
    hehe

    oh though the verb for "can" is "Moći"
    Ja mogu - I can
    Ti možeš - You can
    On/ona/ono može - He/she/it can

    mi možemo - We can
    vi možete - You can (pl)
    oni mogu - They can

    MarkoV, please ask such random questions in Miscellaneous translations thread

    It is "evo ti ga na" and I don't think there's appropriate expression in English lol
    It means something like "here ya go, take it" .. "

    you might know why i ask...
    Sad mi je žao - Now I'm sorry

    Žao mi je - I'm sorry

    Sad, sada - now

    SAD is USA, good thinking Nur Demir, but in this sentence it's now

    i think "we are in USA now" is "sad mi smo u SAD-u" (native correct me if im wrong)
    Yes but Mi smo u SAD-u sad or Mi smo sad u SAD-u.

    If you put sad on the beginning it will be Sad smo u SAD-u
    You don't need to put I, You, We... always, You can just say (Ja) sam, (Ti) si...
    Sad sam u Srbiji - Now I'm in Serbia
    Sad si u Hrvatskoj - Now you're in Croatia.
    Trenutno ste u SAD-u - You are in USA at the moment (Trenutno - at the moment, now)

    Evo - here is... (Here I am - Evo me. Here he is - Evo ga)
    Maybe in some sentenses it will be something like look or There but look is VIDI and There-TAMO

    Look at the window - Pogledaj na prozor

    U REDU and DOBRO mostly, and we use VAŽI. And OK too but in speech sometimes, it's not literalily.

    :P i understand 40% of the things when i hear croatian but i can't speak. My family only speaks croatian to me when they dont want the rest of the people in the place to understand. (im 17)

    Argentina will be extremely cheap to you when you enter de EU (1 peso is 20 cents of an euro). In the meantime you have a lot of countries to visit near you i suppose :P

    well thats enough chat, spring will remind us the objective of the thread :P

    ill send mi msn to you by pm
