Can someone with a bit of spare time have a look at the below attachment and interpret it for me. It is instructions for setting the combination on a lock that came with a new laptop bag.
Santa forgot my other half only speaks english :D

Thanks Hotskates

I don't know what language it is, but does not matter any more as a bit of fiddling with the lock and it became quite obvious.

Happy New Year

Its kinda funny how with most things, we really don't need the 100 page instruction book that seems to come in 8 different languages.:D Common sense works best:):)

xgerryx, I spotted "hasta" so thought "it's probably Spanish". I ran "hasta que usted escuche el sonido" through babelfish & got "until you listen to* the sound". Which pretty much nails it, IMO.

(* i.e. "hear" -- yeah, I know it's solved, but puzzles are fun. :eek:)

LOL! Maybe babelfish could be used for that game where a book/film/song title is translated into another language, then the result is translated back to the original, then someone has to guess what it really is. :D
