Help Needed to Translate Letter

Recommended Posts

Queen Cronut

Hello! I'm adopted and would like to get in touch with my foster parents in China. I'm from Nanning located in the southern area of the Guangzi Zhaung Autonomous Region but was adopted when I was one years old and emigrated to America. Although the common language of the region is Cantonese, I'm not 100% sure what dialect they speak. I would really love some help in translating their address so that I can learn that language and hopefully reconnect with them.

The address is in standard written Chinese. Even if from a minority group and perhaps speaking a minority language at home, as city dwellers they undoubtedly speak, read and write standard Chinese. So if you want to reconnect with them, that's the language to use.

Nice one @889, was just ploughing through same. Agree with you about the deletion.

I would delete the photo of the address unless you have no problems with it being seen by the general public,  perhaps obscure some of the detail and repost.

Agree, though not as critical since the personal information on the photo doesn't get indexed by the search engines.

I don't know what the state of the art is currently, but I do know Google will index a scanned PDF, and even if it's not indexing text embedded in photos today, it may well start doing so soon enough. It's just an OCR problem.
