ATTN: Literate people who speak Dutch---Could contain Mature content

I apologize if this is some obscene word, but I was checking my order status
for a recent order and the status simply stated: Verzonden

When I put this word into the translator that I use, it appeared to blush and didn't
give me an answer.

I am hoping that this word loosely means "shipped" or "sent" but if it translates
to "F*** off you stupid American" that's OK too. I just like to know when I am being
insulted.


Any idea what this mysterious, wonderous, perhaps even magical word may mean?

Verzonden Verzonden Verzonden

It certainly looks like sent.

An online dictionary gave me "consign" which would be in line with that, I think.

Also, see: http://ut.gotranslate.com/translatef...to=11&x=52&y=7

Thanks Benedict. That's a good site that you directed me to. Just another tool to put in the toolbox. Thanks again.

... = ...

(to) send sent sent

The Dutch word zonde = 'sin' ... perhaps that's what confused Babelfish?!
