Now this translation above is fine, but the one that appears "to begin now or tomorrow" is straight out of the mouth of William Shakespeare! Surely my translation "Do I begin now or tomorrow" is also a good translation?
Not really. I'd say the only two translations that should be accepted here are:
- Shall I start now or tomorrow?
- Should I start now or tomorrow?
I think that the Romanian use of subjunctive is close to the German sollen in this case (what I'm supposed to do or what should I do).
I mean this sentence translated into German (I'm not a German speaker so please correct me if I'm wrong) could be: Soll ich jetzt oder morgen anfangen?
