Bilingual Translations


#1

I enjoy translating songs (JP>Eng) a ton, and I’m wondering if members interested in translating could come together and trade ways of making the process more natural. Maybe we could even help each other out with quick questions about the trandslations. All language-learners welcome!

My threads die very often. I have a strand of hope for this one

Hi! Right now I’m translating some of my stories in Spanish to English. I’ve found it hard specially because I find Spanish way richer and English more concise.
What I’ve been doing lately is, instead of literally translating, rewriting paragraph by paragraph as if I was writing in English for the first time and it feels a lot better!


#16

Well I’m a translator in French, English, Italian, Persian and Russian (but this one is harder lol)


#17

French? My buddy, a writer friend has a book in french that they want translated. Are you free/available/priced?


#18

They want it translated in English ?
Yes I can but as I have a big exam at the end of June I’ll not be able to translate a lot until July.
For the rest it depends of the length of the book and the length of the chapters :smiley:
