EmmaT2008 5 | 34 25 Jan 2009 / #1Does "Bo" mean "because" in Polish as well as Ponieważ. I ask this because I am reading a polish short story from the internet. Whilst looking at the English translated version. I noticed it said bo wcześniej means because before..I thought "because" was Ponieważ in polish..I hope someone can clear this up. I understand sometimes translations aren't exact but i Just wondered.
