First some Engliz:

These weird combination of letters are actually words translated in some different languages, and concatenated.

Each line has one word translated in different languages. These nine words form three groups of three words each, with groups separated on the basis of a common relation.

What you have to do:

  • Find the words
  • Find the languages
  • Find the groups

Since this question is the first part of a series of questions I'll be posting, so this one has a couple of easy workarounds.

    $\begingroup$ Just answer sniped me. Well done. $\endgroup$ – ZanyG Mar 6 at 6:16
  • $\begingroup$ @ZanyG, I still don't have the final relation though, so feel free to answer. :) $\endgroup$ – Takeshi Mar 6 at 6:17

    $\begingroup$ The way I read the question, there is no final group. The 'common relation' is between the groups of three words, which you've already answered. $\endgroup$ – ZanyG Mar 6 at 6:19

    $\begingroup$ @ZanyG, then maybe it's done then. Thanks so much. Well done to you too kind Sir :) $\endgroup$ – Takeshi Mar 6 at 6:22
  • $\begingroup$ Yay! Also, @ZanyG is right. There is no final relation. But maybe I'll give one in next questions in this series. $\endgroup$ – Eagle Mar 6 at 11:39
