The Translation Club (#7)

Hello everyone,

This is a Translation Club.


How does this work?

You write what you want to be translated in the comments, and a native speaker will translate it for you.

Please specify what language your text should be translated to/from. :)

I am a native speaker of XXX, and I want to help translate

For the sake of those who want to get translations, it would be best if you write an application in the comments telling us what language you are willing to help translate. Once I receive your application, you will be added to the list of Translators below.

Do I have to join to help translating?

No. You can help translating without joining as well.

Do I need any qualifications as a translator?

Yes! :) You should be fluent.

I am a translator. Can I still submit text to be translated?

Of course!

I am a translator, but I want to resign

Sure, you can resign anytime! Thank you for your help. :)

I want to be a translator for a language, but there is already a translator. Can I also be one?

Of course! Any language can have any amount of translators. Everyone is appreciated!

Thank you for the information. I leave in Barcelona (Spain) and use English as daily language for my job activities. I speak Catalan and Spanish. As a matter of fact, I'm a translator into Catalan ans Spanish for MuseScore.

I would like to join the Spanish > Catalan translation forces. What else is needed?

Thank you in advance


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Welcome Alberto! And thank you for joining! :D
Nothing else is needed. I'm very glad to have you here! Regards


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Espels

I can translate from English into Russian. Russian is my first language. Where are the texts that need to be translated?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hello Espels! Thank you for joining, and welcome!

Other users will comment text the to be translated. :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

It seems you need an Italian translater. I can be one if you want. Also can someone translate детство by Rauf & Faik? It is a song in Russian.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Algarve11

Well, this is the best I could make (avoiding some repetitions at the end):


Childhood
Rauf & faik

Never lie away
Never lie away
Never, never lie away
Never lie away

Now I beg you, please be silent
Look in the eyes and don't say anything
I decided everything, we are not talking about love
And I let it go, you please live
Just run away-ah-ah-ah
And don't remember-ah-ah-ah
Just run away-ah-ah-ah
And don't remember-ah-ah-ah

Every time I remember my childhood
I remember our place
By 16, we got tired of kissing
You took my t-shirt
This is no use
I, the fool, was wrong
Why did I fall in love so much?

Childhood
I remember our place
By 16, we got tired of kissing
You took my t-shirt
This is no use
I, the fool, was wrong
Why did I fall in love so much?

How i lie away?
Never lie away
Never, never lie away
Never lie away

Every time I remember my childhood, etc...

Childhood
I remember our place, etc...

Never lie away, etc...


Also I found this. It's a better translation than mine, I think.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

Ok, thanks for that.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Algarve11

My pleasure. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

At least someone’s putting stuff on to be translated! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

Thanks, also can you translate вечера? Rauf and Faik.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hello Daniel!
Thank you for joining, and welcome!!

So, you're joining as an English to Italian translator? :)

So many people will be glad about that! ;D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

Well yes, if I’m accepted. :) does that mean I’ll translate English texts to Italian or the other way round?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Yep! English to text into Italian. :D Thanks!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

Ok. I’m actually probably better at the other way, but I can do both.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Alright, well, you could be both. What do you think? :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

Haha, sure then. Only if you need one.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vetyr_Cylni

I’m fluent(more or less) in Russian and English, so I could help out with Russian and English.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hi Vetyr!

Thank you for applying!
So, just for clarification, you're joining as an English to Russian and Russian to English translator?

:D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SmashCookie

I can't follow up this closely -I rarely follow up any post lol- but I'm interested to see how this goes. Can I be a non regular translator who drops a comment from time to time?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hi SmashCookie! Of course! That would be wonderful.
Thank you in advance for your help. :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SmashCookie

Cool. I'm a Spanish native speaker and I can translate French, English and Portuguese to Spanish. I'm not as good in German but I could translate too. c:


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Wow! That's a bunch. It will be very useful to have you around. :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SmashCookie

Thank you.

But very few people summit texts to translate do they?

Should I summit a text in the comments?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ChevyBarnes05

Wowww! So many willing translators!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

IKR? It's wonderful, I'm so thankful for everyone's willingness to help out! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

There aren’t many people who actually want something to be translated though...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Yes, that is so. Hopefully interest will pick up over time.
It's sort of disappointing, but at least there is a resource for those who need it. :)

  • I've also noticed posts that consist only of a request to translate something, which I don't have an issue with at all, but it's a small thing that's repetitive, and I'm hoping it will be minimized if these posts start being used for that. -

Anyhow. :D

By the way, feel free to tell me if you want to post these posts too. They are posted once a month, but I don't always post them on time, or regularly, each month. I want it to be a community effort. :)

All the best! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

Nah, too much stress, running it and all that. Thanks for you posting it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Linda7Italian

Well done DessertRose! I always enjoyed your Afrikaans course! And mille grazie to our Madrelingua & Others for looking after the Italian course so loyally! You are invaluable.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Thank you, Linda! Yeah, I haven't been posting Afrikaans course posts lately. Sorry about that to all who are waiting for them. Been focusing on other things :)

All the best to you there! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dari.DM.16

I am a native English and Spanish speaker. I can help translate from English to Spanish and Spanish to English. I can also help correct English.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hi Dariana! Thank you for joining, and welcome! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Songve

Where does this Club meet? In the individual language Discussion areas?

Edit: I thought clubs were banned on here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vetyr_Cylni

Good point. If it’s on here, then I can do it. But if it’s on another site, probably not.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hello @Songve and @Vetyr_Cylni, This is more of a group than a club. We don't meet anywhere, this is only on Duolingo. :)

I didn't know about the Club ban at all. Please tell me more. :)

Thanks and all the best!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/eglupo75

Hi, I'm Enrico and I've a terrific skills in Italian and I use English in my everyday job so I can translate from English to Italian.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Welcome Enrico!
Thanks for joining. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Crrct_my_Eng_thx

Could you tell me where can I see the translating materials/results?
I'm wondering how does the club work. It's a whole new concept to me.

My 1st language is S. Korean, 2nd one is Japanese and 3rd one is English.
I would like to practice and learn my English skills. So if some English natives could correct my English, I would be very glad. Also, I can translate English or Japanese into Korean to help other people. Although my English is not that accurate, if someone could explain me the exact meaning of the sentences, I can make them into very high quality Korean sentences, since my Korean skill is upper 1% (in my Korean SAT).

For now, I'm interested in translating some Korean literature into English, like ancient Korean novels, poems written in pure Korean or Sino-Korean, sijo (traditional three-verse Korean poem)... To do this, I need to learn some English poems first :) And I personally really don't want to translate certain K-pop related material.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hanspersson

Since your username is what it is I'll mention that the sentence

I would like to practice and learn my English skills

is strange. It's grammatically correct but the meaning feels a bit off. The issue is that you can't really learn skills that you already have (you use "my", so you are talking about skills you have). In that scenario, it would be better with "... and improve/hone my skills". Assuming that you want to get better at using the English that you already know.

Another possibility is to write "... and learn new/more skills" which means that you want to learn new stuff rather than new details about stuff you know the basics of.

In effect, the first version is about deepening your existing skills and the second about learning new skills.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AishahSaza

From my understanding on the top of page (written by Dessert-Rose), materials will be your own and you get to choose to which language you would like your material to be translated into. So, in your post, you shared that you would like to learn English poems. Thus, you should post an English poem of your choice here (in the comment) and a qualified (?) volunteer will help to provide the translation to your language of choice (either Korean or Japanese)

Sadly there are no volunteers for Korean nor Japanese at the moment. English to Korean/Japanese translation is what I'm working on, but my level is just around intermediate so I can be of no help here :(

I wish you all the best in improving your English!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

And for in Japanese and Korean! It would be great to have a translator for some Asian languages too!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FrancaisRowlet

Hi I am fluent in both English and Chinese. I'm more conversational in English so I can translate sentences from Chinese to English.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hi!
Thank you for applying, I'll add you to the list. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DJrossonwye

This is a great resource, Dessert-Rose. Keep it up ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Thank you! I will, as far as I can :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Espels

Can you translate this one into Russian or Esperanto. Thanks.

"Amidst the mists and coldest frosts,

With stoutest wrists and loudest boasts,

He thrusts his fist against the posts

And still insists he sees the ghosts"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Algarve11

Как-то так:


Среди туманов и холоднейших морозов,
С сильнейшими запястьями и громчайшим хвастовством
Он ударяет кулаками по столбам
И все еще настаивает, что видит призраков.


Откуда это?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Espels

Это из Стивена Кинга, "Оно". А вообще это скороговорка.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alexnb33

I can translate Spanish, English and Polish if someone wants help in these languages ^^


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hi Alex! That's wonderful!

Are you joining? :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Sorry, but am I right if I assume that you mean you can translate Spanish, English and Polish into English?

Would you like to do Spanish into Polish, vice verse, English into Spsnish, etc.? :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bailey39

I'm a native English speaker and just learning a bunch of other languages. :) I can help correct English. For what it's worth, I have a qualification in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hi Bailey,
Wow! That's awesome!
Thanks in advance for your help :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ravendave1

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Welcome back, Dave!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alberto-Villar

Hello Dessert-Rose,

I have a question, How do DL users know about this translation club? Are there any links in the toolbar? Perhaps we could have a "Translate" link under "More".

Regards, Alberto


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielVanD18

It’s quite unofficial, so I don’t think Duo would do something more about it. Otherwise they’d have to do the same for the WIS, DailyDuo, and some others.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/valeriachevez

Hey I just joined the discussion. I can help translate English and French texts to Spanish and translate the French to English as well! My native language is Spanish, but I have been learning French since I was 3 yrs old and we always speak English at my school ever since Nursery!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hi Valeria! Welcome! :D
That's a very useful set of skills to have, language-wise. Glad to have you here!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SASAgent1

I am a fluent Hindi and English speaker. so I can translate Hindi->English and vice versa.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessert-Rose

Hindi !!

That's awesome! Welcome SASAgent1! Good to have you here, and thanks for joining. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SecretlyAHippo

@Dessert-Rose, my name in the username has been changed from "Gwaugle", so my name in the list, link to account, and username has been changed. Would you mind changing it from Gwaugle to my current username, SecretlyAHippo?

Thanks for doing this, as always!

To add to the point, I'll try to start using this more, though I'm not on the forums as much, this is a useful resource I should use more.

Thanks again.
