Is this a good translation?

    I want to say:

    Teaching is the only career I'm interested in. When I thought about what I wanted to do after I finished learning, I didn't know. And then I realised that learning is the thing I care about. Learning is my passion. The pleasure of finding things out.

    The translation:

    Is é teagasc na gairme ach tá me ag suim isteach. Nuair a shíl mé faoi na rudaí a bhí mé a dhéanamh tar éis a chríochnaigh mé ag foghlaim, ní raibh a fhios agam. Agus ansin shíl mé go bhfuil an fhoghlaim an rud cúram mé faoi. Is é mo paisean Foghlama. An sásamh na rudaí a fháil amach.

    Please point out my mistakes, or tell me if I could have said anything simpler (translation from Google translate). Also, how do you pronounce "teagasc"?

  • Google Translate is a nightmare. Avoid it. I'll try to give you a better translation in a few hours when I've the laptop in front of me.

    Thanks, Insect Overlord!

    Ahem o_o And er, maybe you could also tell me later how to say "I want to apply for this course because I want children to enjoy learning as much as I do."

    Is í an mhúinteoireacht an t-aon ghairm amháin ina bhfuil suim agam. Ní raibh a fhios agam céard a bhí de dhíth orm nuair a shroic mé deireadh m'am mar iníon léinn. B'ansin a bhuail an smaoineamh mé ná gurb í an fhoghlaim an rud is tábhachtaí dom. Mo phaisean is ea í, ná an pléisiúr a bhaineann le tuiscint rudaí.

    Teaching is the one profession in which I am interested. I did not know what I wanted when I came to the end of my time as a student. It was then that the thought hit me that learning was the most important thing to me. It is my passion, the pleasure of understanding things.

    As always, wait for more advice and more accurate translations. I shouldn't be doing this at this time of the night at all!
