That sounds great! I will transfer th translations we come up with to th dictionary, then. As you suggested, about five variants seems reasonable for most phrases. They needn't translate literally: for example, "You're welcome," can become, "My pleasure", "No problem", "Any time", "You betcha", etc.
If anyone thinks of good translations for older examples in th thread, feel free to mention them as well.
So I'll start by answering Urban Scout's example.
What time is it?
Do you have the time?
What time has it become?
The time, please?
Will you tell me the time, please?
I would like to know the time.
