Once we were welcomed by I Am A Turtle, a "completely pointless" website. At first we thought it could have some hidden and exciting meaning, but we were wrong. At the same period of time we googled for some dubbed versions of the most classic Star Wars scene, when Luke finds out that Darth Vader is actually his father. Talking to some friends (and sometimes annoying people on Internet forums and mailing lists) we've collected the phrase "No, I Am Your Father" initially translated into 20 different languages, including some fictional ones :-)

Based on it we decided to create this website, a much more interesting project than I Am A Turtle, but still pointless in a certain way. Anyway, we have lasers: our phrase is so super much better. It is a negative statement followed by an affirmative one and it is more useful to know how to claim paternity in another language than to claim you are a turtle.

You can send us new or revised translations (in UTF-8 format please, we love fancy characters!) by clicking here!

What about checking our marketing directory? We know you'll just love the NIAYF fortune messages... and now you can also follow us on Twitter!
