Does anyone know how to say NHL and NBA in french? Like KFC is PFK. Do the letters change or stay the same? Thanks.



I'd think it would be whatever the letters are in the french alphabet.


Was this a serious post?  They have the same exact alphabet as we do, they just speak differently.

I'd say keep it in English form. It's the name of something, and it's proper noun. So usually proper nouns don't translate into other languages, besides peoples' names.

Usually names stay the same no matter what language but NHL would be:

Ligue Nationale d'Hockey or LNd'H

And NBA would be:

Association Nationale de Basket-ball or ANB

Uh, this was done using a translator so they might be incorrect.

Aw, sorry boomstick13. I didn't see your post.

If you were smart enough to read this sentence forward, put it in your sig.
