Dang. It's snowing but the worst part of the storm is coming late in the afternoon. Can't wait! I'm so stoked to go snowboarding in a few weeks!

Guys, I need your help.

I have a traffic survey tomorrow and friday evening at the Dutch-German border rest area. It concentrates on the trucks.

However, I got a feeling some truckers may not be very happy when I'm there in the dark writing down their license plates. So I came up with this list of foreign languages.

Are there any mistakes? I used Google translate. Let me know:

I need to write down the license plates, so we can determine what kind of problems there are on this rest area (long term parking, customs, overnight parking, short term parking etc.)

I assume you will measure traffic intensity?

In this way it will be better, more natural to write: Badanie natężenia ruchu , but it's up to you, I can see other versions don't include that.

I'm not sure about the Ukrainian version. To me it sounds like observing the traffic, looking at it, not measuring. But I can be wrong, try on Ukrainian forum.

No, I'm gonna write down the license plates of the truck. I do that every two hours so we can see how long a truck has stopped, and what the usage vs capacity is.

I want to keep the sentences as general as possible, like "traffic survey".

Українськi not Українськa, cause Українськa refers to a feminine noun. funny, huh?

But again, try asking on UA forum, cause there is also sth like Українськa мова(ukrainian language), but I don't know if they have a single Українськa, probably not.

also:
Slovenský for SK
Slovanski for SLO (Verso, correct?)

What you've written is a very formal name for a language.

About Google Streetview: When Google started taking pictures in Vienna, there were articles in the media regarding privacy issues.
What's funny is that this website has been around for a while now and nobody seems to care, not even privacy activists:

Are you only targeting foreign trucks, Chris? How come you didn't write it in Dutch?

There are no Dutch trucks there. I was there yesterday, there were only eastern/central European trucks. Mostly RUS, UA, BY, LT, PL.

'Slovanski' means Slavic. Both ('slovenčina' for Slovak and 'slovenščina' for Slovenian) are correct, you can see them in Wikipedia. You can say 'slovenščina', 'slovensko' or 'slovenski jezik' for Slovenian. The translation itself isn't correct though, it should be the other way around (raziskava prometa). It's also wrong in Serbian; I'd say 'istraga saobraćaja' (истрага саобраћаја) or sth like that.

'Slovenščina' is a noun, 'slovensko' is an adverb, while 'slovenski jezik' means 'Slovenian language'. Yes, 'slovenščina' sounds more official.

A repost on this page. Any more corrections?

you have missed a letter in Serbian, correct would be "саобраћајна анкета".
i'd say the same for Slovenian - "prometna raziskava"

Chris, I think Forgalom felmérés would be better instead of forgalmi felmérés.
