Argh, what language is this in then??

I'm trying to look at http://www.sudsandsoda.com/notebook/...s/2003_05.html and I tried translating it from German to English using http://world.altavista.com/ but it's not working. So is this German or not?? Dutch? If so, could someone please forward me to an online Dutch-English translating machine thingamajig?

Danke!

I've always had a problem looking for dutch translation websites. They seem to always have every other language but dutch.

In the flesh hall in middelburg, a secular Gothic space where former flesh hung and nowadays, is this month a video installation hangs art of the Austrian see Martin Arnold. The artist acquired, according to reports, worldwide faam with its film assemblies composed from pictures of old hollywoodfilms. For the flesh hall Arnold made the installation ' Jeanne ' especially, in which he actress Rene Falconetti from the film The Passion or Joan or Arc (Carl thomas Dreyer, 1929) again to life bring:

She keeps closed its eyes and its mouth angles its downstairs. Minute-long them in gentle resignation, and then beats she remains the eyes slowly and wet at sky, its mouth angles curl carefully as if there hope shines. But it falls in, and its eyes close. Afterwards the tafereel repeats itself. Slow, time on time, without end.(the Volkskrant, 14 May 2002)

Nice try yertle!
Unfortunately, those translator thingie's often cannot translate the grammatical part. So I tried to make a rudimentary translation myself. It's still not 100% correct, but I think it does read a little better.:

For 'De Vleeshal' Arnold made the installation 'Jeanne', in which he brings actress Rene Falconetti, from the movie The Passion of Joan of Arc (Carl Thomas Dreyer, 1929), back to life again.

"She keeps her mouth closed and the corners of her mouth are pointing down. For minutes she stays in gentle resignation, and then her wet eyes slowly look up to the sky, the corners of her mouth carefully curl along, as if there is some hope. But then it falls back in, and her eyes close again. This sight repeats itself again. Slowly, time and again, without ending." (De Volkskrant 14 mei)
C ya!

Marty

Edit: BTW, do you also need a translation for 18 May? It'll take a bit longer, but I think I can manage it.
