Yeah the guys above me got the translation down about as far as I can too. Is this in cyrrilic because it's east Germany? Pre Berlin wall and all that?

Kinda depressing I can't help more after I spent a year out in Russia!

Nice shot dude, love the sunlight through the windows, and that sign adds some great focus.

Yeah this barracks have been under the control of the russians after the split between east and west germany, so I think it is there for that reason (plus, krampnitz is near berlin so this might have been a strategic place to be for them)

No problem, feel free to ask anything, I think it's great to have non-french people with such interest for this language =)

I love French. It is such a beautiful language. I took Spanish for 6 years, French for 5, and German for 1. French was the easiest. I finished my last three years of high school taking French.

Do you know what year this is built? Because i think one of the letters is an old unused letter.
First three words of the sign
Don't Stand under ?
(i think groove, but i am not sure. Maybe weight?)

I think it dates back from the 50's - 60's (it was situated in former eastern germany, under the control of the USSR) but I can't really be sure...

"don't stand under the crane" or something like this, then? because I believe this place was used to load up heavy weighting objects into trucks or something

Yeah, that would make sense. If this was that era, and controlled by the USSR, then I am probably miss-reading that one letter. I think you are right about the loading. Makes sense.
Anyways, nice picture. Very nice.

And your french quote is very nice.(I am taking French.)
Isn't it nice to be multilingual?

Thanks, I am quite happy with this phrase (I wrote it, as a matter of fact). It is indeed nice to be multilingual, I whish I knew more languages (the only other I can speak is spanish, but I'm quite bad)

Anyway, that's nice to have helped me understand this sign, last time I had something in russian on one of my pictures, it was completely "random" (see here : [link] )

Stick with Spanish. You will appreciate in the long run. :)

You welcome. The other spray painted sign says "Swimming is forbidden/no swimming."
Talk about random.........
