    I have received the following , which I can translate most of but the following is giving me problems.

    omlouvam se ze jsem nevolala
    I apologise but I am (nevolala)? This word I cannot find in any of my dictionaries

    Mockrat dekuju

    Maybe this modification helps you:

    omlouvam se ze jsem (ti) ne(za)volala

    zavolat = to shout but also to make telephone call
    zavolat ti = to phone you

    omlouvam se ze jsem ti nezavolala = Sorry(I apologize) I did not call (phone) you.

    also this translation is possible (w/o ti and -za-):

    omlouvam se ze jsem nevolala = Sorry that I was not shouting out. or Sorry that I was not calling.
