To play you don't have to know languages - no matter if you know just English or 10 languages, you can using Google. The rule is easy: one person writes a parrot name in a foreign language (it may be even your native one, if you aren't native English speaker) and the second writes the name in English and what English it was. For example:
Person 1: Rudosterka zielonolica
Person 2: green cheeked conure (Polish)
Ara arakanga
Person 3 (or 1 again): scarlet macaw (Czech)
Nymphensittich

Etc.

Tips:
  • if you look for the name on the Internet, my recommend is Wikipedia - in English there are available all parrot species and on the left side you have a list of available sides in other languages. If you really want to find the name in language, but the species isn't available there - it is possible too, but you have to find another way (remember - never translate names through Google translator - it won't work in most cases).
  • if you want to find out what the name means - copy the name and paste into Google. Usually you should get the answer
Notes:
  • some names are the same in few languages - eg. Ara ararauna means blue and gold macaw in many languages. In this case you can choose one or write few languages - eg. Polish, Czech, Slovakian, Latin
  • some species may have few names in one language - you can choose one (if you don't know which is the most common, you can choose the title name from Wikipedia - it should make next player getting the right answer after googling)


I'll start:

Okay, I just checked, and you're right. Cacatoès à crête de soufre brings up Cacatua sulphurea, which is a Yellow Crested cockatoo. Sulphur Crested cockatoo is Cacatua galerita.
