You can often fool it by searching in a related language - which is the method I used for finding sites in Arpitan, Romansch and other minority langauges.
I'm an SF author in my spare time and I've been published in 18 langauges so far. I've also had very short stories translated into another 20 langauges and posted on my own website where I couldn't find an outlet for them. So, to go back to my original question, are there any Luxembourgish websites that publish short fiction? Or if not, would anyoe be interested in translating a 100 word story that I can post on my website?

This is common all over southern Germany as well. Since proper names don't decline, it's very practical, as it makes it easy to distinguish accusative objects from dative ones.

I would love to know the standard conjugation of verbs and all forms of 'to be' and 'to have'.
Wow, thanks, that's great, I don't know Wiktionary very good, but I'll use it now.
