Hi all, I have a New Favorite Music Group, but they are From Hilversum/Amsterdam
area of Nederland/Netherlands/Holland.
I would love to understand what they are singing, but do not read/write/speak Dutch yet.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

They are a Childrens Group, Kinderen Voor Kinderen, if that matters.
There are a few others from there I like too.

Many Thanks,

What's the name of the song? There are many translation sites available online. If you can find the lyrics online, which I'm sure you can (search song name + lyrics), copy them and paste them in a free online translator like worldlingo.com and go from Dutch to English.

However, most online translation services are awful, but they may come close enough for you to get the idea.

But you can't do anything without the name of the song.

Shane has a point, but it's hard to find all of what you need. This is from a Youtube search for Kinderen voor Kinderen english subtitles:

I have No need to look on Screwtube.
My account there, that gargle will not let me into is "EdselDan"
All the ones with English Translations posted are MINE!!!
(So long as they are All there that is[Some did come up in a search])

I have All the Lyrics to the songs through last years TV Show/CD KVK-32 "Zo Bijzonder"
I can send the text file to anyone helping

i asked here for Human help. I have tryed those on line "Translators"
but they do a Poor job at best, and some words can give them fits enough to Crash
the site.

My favorite one is Gone though. AltaVista/Yahoo BabelFish

Believe it or not, I had some use those On-line transalators on songs I already had posted.
I only posted a song After getting a translation.

Due to g@@gle demanding a G account now instead of an Original Pre-existing Youtube account ID,
I have Lost contact with almost all of my translation helpers.

i know there are members of the Forum who are from Nederland/Netherlands/Holland.
I just wanted to post this here, instead of trying to PM all/any of them for this request.

thanks for the suggestions, but I need real translations, not those automated Close enough
thing from online sites. (Unless you know of an On-line one that is not automated, but a Live person
doing the work)

Besides, there are almost 275 songs left from the group I need translated

I just downloaded 318 Hi-Def clips from youtube to replace my Low res copies.
(That only covered the first 25 Annual Shows-And NO Specials--This year is 33)

Yes, I have at least 1 or 2 copies of the one links "Twee Vaders/Two Fathers"
Also, The Copy of KVK 10 TV show I have is Subtitled in English
