I am currently creating a web page. In this web page, I am
going to include a link to a page with translations in various languages
for the following phrase: SO MANY LANGUAGES, SO LITTLE TIME. I
would appreciate it if you could tell me how to say this phrase in
your mother tongue or languages you are fluent enough in. Thank you for
your cooperation.
