    Why not try having a go of it yourself?

    This is a very easy problem. First you'd need to construct both arrays and assign values to the indices. Then you'd need to prompt the user for the word in English. Then, store the input in a String. Loop through the array and see if the string matches any value stored in the English array. When it gets a match, print that same index value in wambo using the toString method.

    I don't know a lot about java, but I am pretty sure what I just explained would work. Now, have a go at actually trying to write that program.

    Your instructions were to start a thread and ask a question.
    "Write a program" (aka do my homework for me) is not a question

    This problem is not hard at all. Just think logically what you need to do. First you need to assign the two or more arrays their values. Secondly you would need to prompt the user for a word in English then compare that word to your English array then use that spot in the English array to get the word in the other language. It should take maybe 20-30 lines max

    this is what:
    1 int index = java.util.Arrays.asList(english).indexOf("food", "hello", "phone", "house", "car");
    2
    3 if(index<0)System.out.println("No wambo equivalent");
    4
    5 else
    6
    7 System.out.println(wambo ["oikulya", "ongeipi", "ongodi", "eumbo", "otuwa"]);
    what did i do wrong or leave out?

    Johnngolombe, you need to understand a few things first.

    Do you understand the concept of the index of arrays? For example, if your two arrays were named English ad Wambo as you showed us:

    English={"food","hello","phone","house","car"}
    Wambo={"oikulya","ongeipi","ongodi","eumbo","otuwa "}

    Could you tell me what is the index of the word "phone" in the English array?
    Could you tell me what Wambo[3] is?
    If I wrote this code:

    int index = 2;
     
    System.out.println(English[index]);
    System.out.println(Wambo[index]);

    Could you tell me the output of that code? Don't copy it into a compiler and run it yourself.

    Secondly, do you know how to compare strings? There are functions in the String class that compare strings. Given this code:

    String myName = "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt";
    String hisName = "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt";
     
    if(   )
        System.out.println("His name is my name too!");

    Do you know what code to put in the if statement to make that line print out?

    You know, I put a lot of effort into my previous response (dated September 17th at 4:06 PM), and neither Johngolombe nor that guy Rucy who is obviously in the same class have bothered to look or respond. Am I being petty being annoyed by that?

    You should get used to it. It is amazing the number people who ignore the very good advice they get. Mostly due to their lack of knowledge. If they do not understand something they simply ignore it rather than asking for clarification. Or they continue to whine in the hope someone will just give them a fully coded solution.

    Well I've only been a contributing member (guy who answers questions instead of just asking my own) for a few weeks. I imagine I'll be a burnt out ball of cynicism and bitterness by November.

    Does it usually get worse this time of year? The new school year is starting (at least here in the U.S.; I dunno how it works everywhere else) so I guess there's a lot of newbies out there.

    yeah, it seems folks just want people to do their work for them. I can see why the trend is not to spoonfeed or bend over backwards for people.

    Au contraire!

    I am more than willing to bend over backwards for people providing they put in the effort (post code, error messages, ask specific questions etc).
