Hello i,m Chris.
I live in Belgium, that is why there could be mistakes in this message.
I'm in search for names of country's. Because i would like some country names in different languages. I collect all the new coins from the "euro", that 's why i'm looking for the translation from:
Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Gréce, Luxemburg, Finland, the Netherlands and Austria
Thanks for helping out a desperate Belgium boy who lives in Gent
