I've almost reached my goal of translating this into all my current projects.  Lashel is taking forever so I don't have that one yet, but here are the others, done right this time.  To make up for my failure to do much of anything for quite some time, I've added pronunciation and glosses, with a couple dialect bonuses.  Enjoy!

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(all bear-PASS with freedom and equality for dignity and (filler) give-PASS.STAT philosophy and thoughtfulness and toward and ADV same OBLIG behave-PRES)

Note: "give" is the passive voice of an honorific form, of a superior giving to an inferior.  Another way to express the same thing would be BEN-receive-PASS, or /aguttirti/.  /zib/ is a filler pronoun, though it can also reflect previously identified pronouns or nouns, in this case "humans" in the first sentence.
Hopefully I'll be able to give a sample of lashel sometime soon but I dunno. I have a lot to work out yet so we'll see. Also, I didn't have anything in my dictionary for naaqur so most of the last three hours was me going through my notebook picking out words and derivatives and pluralization rules, haha. Anyway.

Very nice! I tried slogging my way through the IPA, but I had a hard time at it. Eh, whatever. Looks great!

Haha, thank you. There's a lot there.

I'm especially impressed that you have these multiple languages to this point of completion. I'm not far enough along with mine that I can do much of anything. But I'm working on fixing that.

Thank you again. :blush: It's good to take your time developing language, I think, but then there's the benefit of being able to make changes whenever you want. Good luck with yours, and I can't wait to see a translation challenge. ^_^
