Hi! My name is Mark Harold Ecal. I am a Filipino, residing in Batangas, Philippines. I’m a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and currently working in a BPO company. I love playing chess and surfing the internet. English is not my primary language that’s why most of the time I use books or websites to give me the translation of a word or phrase that I newly encountered. I sometimes also look for the translation of other languages other than English and Tagalog, such as Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin and French. l find those translation websites really useful especially if you want to understand and speak new language. And that's the reason why I got the idea to create something similar to that.
I know there are lots of Filipinos all over the world. Filipinos being married to foreigners is now a common scenario. Many foreigners are also being enticed to visit or even live in the Philippines due to low cost of living. Added to that are the beautiful places like beaches and nature tripping experience that they can get. Of course, the food and the people are also a main reason to stay. Filipinos are known for their hospitality and being warm-hearted. Foreigners are welcome to the Philippines. Many foreigners also love the beauty of Filipinos. That’s why more and more foreigners want to learn Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines.
I created this website to list the common Tagalog phrases use in daily conversations. As much as possible, I give not the literal translation, but the useful ones where a typical Filipino uses. Because most of the translation that you will get from other websites, especially those ones that are using a translation tool are not giving the proper translation. I am a native speaker that’s why the lists of phrases I use are the ones that you can exactly hear from a typical Filipino conversation.
I appreciate your visit and please feel free to contact me if you have questions, suggestions or if you have words or phrases that you want to be translated to Tagalog.
We now also have our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Please check them out. Thank you!
