    Do anyone know where I can find a good site to find the translation? I tried google but it's to many sites with not enough info. Wanted to include them in my OOT bags...Thanks a bunch.

      I can't really help you, but I tried to use on of those translation sites and it was really wrong. I know some spanish and when I translated my words it didn't make sense at all. I would find someone who speaks the language and have them look over it. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

          Will people get offended if they are Jamaican?

            You could try this page from jamaicans.com : Speak Jamaican (Jamaica)

              Not sure if they have what you are looking for, but I plan to use this site to get some phrases in Spanish for my guests...

                I know this might not be the answer that you're looking for, but I wouldn't waste the effort. Everyone speaks english and they use the patois basically when they don't want you to know what they're saying. It sounds like a fairly complicated language, and I think guests would not get much use out of it, in my honest opinion.
