Sorry. No idea.
But I did translate it into Kélen:
il ñanta jahé il ñi jahé anrówne sú-ñiéT-nó
il...il "when" ... "then"
ñanta the relational ñi + 1p.plural.inclusive agent
ñi the relational la in the present perfect
sú-ñiéT-nó "around us(1p.pl.incl)"
wa jamú anániTa; (not.be thing.SG one/alone.ADJ)
The Kélen language can be found at:
