How do you say:

My skills in programming languages are Javascript, Zend framework, Yii framework, etc

I have tried this:


And I don't know how to list the items "Javascript, Zend framework, Yii framework, etc", especially how to place the particles.

  • How about 言語XでのレベルはZ急です? It's a difficult question to answer as everybody will have a different answer for you...

  • Do you mean A, B, C, and D are different programming languages, or they are concepts of programming (OOP, AI, Web applications, etc.)?

    I meant that's just for example purpose. In fact I want to write it as "Zend framework,Yii framemwork, JQuery framework, Javascript, etc". because I only need the pattern to learn the grammar.

  • Is "Listing multiple nouns" what you need? And "skill in programming language" is "プログラミング言語のスキル".

  • X, Y, Z言語が使えます。
  • X, Y, Z言語で開発が出来ます。
  • X, Y, Z言語でソフト構築が出来ます。
  • 言語X, Y, Zのプロです!
  • プログラミング言語はいくつか使えます。

There are a lot of possible translations, so just pick one. But I'm sure somebody else will offer a better translation soon.

  • Thanks for the answer. I will wait another possible answers before I accept your answer :)

  • 構築 indicates physical construction or building, so I don't think it would be used in relation to software development. Unless this is some set phrase or 専門用語 that I've never heard before.

  • @istrasci unless I completely misunderstood what was being said to me at work, you can use it in software development.

  • @yu_ominae: I think I found some examples of that after I posted the comment. I stand corrected.

  • @Itrasci, I actually started doubting what I'd said this morning and also whether I'd used it correctly, so thanks for confirming.

My $0.02.

  • プログラミング言語のうち、X、Y、Zが(専門・得意)です。
  • ソフト開発にかけて、得意とする言語はX、Y、Zです。
  • What's exactly translation of this "My skills in programing languages are A, B, C and D." ? Is this correct "私のプログラミング言語でのスキルはA,B,C,とDです。" ?

    Yes, that is a literal translation. But it sounds really weird. To be honest your sentence in English sounds weird to start with...

    +1 for the very natural first sentence alone. In the second, 「手際のよい」 would have to be changed to something like 「得意とする」.
