    One example that comes to mind in German and there are other words but:
    Telekommunikationsdienstanbieter (32 letters) or Provider (the English word in the German for I.S.P.) you tell me which sounds cooler.
    Well, since you put it that way, I kind of like "Telekommunikationsdienstanbieter"!

    Translation will fail because of a lack of grammar, that is, if the non-English forums are at all like the English forums.

    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    Well if you can pronounce it, it does have a bit of a ring to it.
    But I mean it is a rather long word.
