I don't think this is an effective way of making this the translations thread, already I see that drchris missed it. How about renaming it to :

Traducciones | Translations

and making it a "Sticky" so it's always at the top.

I think he meant to say "where" since the rest of the sentence is in the past. Therefore we get:

¿Estabas en la junta/el encuentro/la reunión de español anoche?

Of course I can't speak for drdchis, but I do notice that a lot of native english speakers, particuarly here in the UK, seem to get confused between we're and were. The same goes for there, they're and their.

Could you please be so kind to give me the most important facts? I think I already understand the important parts of the text but I just want to be sure. :)

Cristóbal Colón: Diario de a bordo

Dice que se quiere partir porque ya no aprovecha nada detenerse, por haber pasado apuellos desconciertos (debe decir del escándalo de los indios). Dice también que hoy ha salido que toda la fuerza del oro estaba en la comarca de la Villa de la Navidad de Sus Altezas, y que en la isla de Carib había mucho alambre y en Martinio, puesto que será dificultoso en Carib, porque aquella gente diz como carne humana, y que allí se parecía la isla de ellos, y que tenía determinado de ir a ella, pues está en el camino, y a la Martinino, que diz que era poblada toda de mujeres sin hombres, y ver la una y la otra, y tomar diz que algunos de ellos. Envió el Almirante la barca a tierra, y el rey de aquella tierra no había venido porque diz que la población estaba lejos, mas envió su corona de oro como había prometido, y vieron otros muchos hombres con algodón y con pan y ajes, todos con sud arcos y flechas. Después que todo lo hubieron resgatadom vinieron diz que cuatro mancebos a la carabela, y pareciéronle al Almirante dar tan buena cuanta de todas aquellas islas que estaban hacia el Leste, en el mismo camino que el Almirante había de llevar, que determinó de traer a Castilla consigo. Allí diz que no tenían hierros ni otro metal que se hobiere visto, aunque en pocos días no se puede saber de una tierra mucho, así por la dificultad de la lengua, que no entendía el Almirante, sino por discreción, como porque ellos no saben lo que él pretendía en pocos días. Los arcos de aquella gente diz que eran tan grandes como los de Francia e Inglaterra; las flechas son propias como las azagayas de las otras gentes que hasta allí había visto, que son de los pimpollos de las cañas cuando son simiente, que quedan muy derechas y de longura de una vara y media [...].

I'm a fan of flamenco and was listening to the late Rocio Jurado sing this song, but unfortunately I don't speak Spanish. Would someone be so kind as to translate these lyrics into English? Thank you!

Que No Daria Yo

Que no daria yo, por empezar de nuevo,
a pasear por la arena de esa playa blanca.

Que no daria yo, por escuchar de nuevo
esa nina que llega tarde a casa.

Y escuchar ese grito de mi madre
pregonando mi nombre en la ventana
mientras yo deshojaba primaveras
por la calle mayor y por la plaza.

Que no daria yo, por empezar de nuevo,
para contar estrellas desde mi ventana.

Vestirme de faralaes y pasear la feria
para sentir el beso de la madrugada
y volar a los brazos de mi pare
y sentir ese brillo en la mirada
para luego alejarme lentamente
a un tablao a bailar por servillanas.

Que no daria yo, por escaparme
a un cine de verano
en donde alguien me diera
el primer beso de amor,
que no daria yo, por sentarme
junto a el en ese parque
viendo como se ponia el sol.

Que no daria yo ay,
por sentarme junto a el en ese parque
y oyendo el ruido del mar,
y oyendo el ruido del mar.

slovenac wrote:Hi, Spanish-speaking guys (and guyettes -- one has to keep PC these days!) ;)

Could anyone please translate the pieces below into Spanish? Being a poor university student I live in a residence hall (US: dorm room facility), which also houses exchange students with questionable grasp of the English language, and so, to avoid misunderstandings (and silly excuses on their behalf), we're seeking to have our information material in the language of every nationality represented in our hallway. Thanks a million in advance! :)
-----

A)
Below is the kitchen roster. Your duties and chores are listed on the list that is passed round from tenant to tenant.

It's important that you do all your chores and thus keep the kitchen clean and enjoyable for us all.
Should you be absent in the week for which you've been rosted, or otherwise prevented from doing your chores, please try to swap weeks with one of the others. Failure to do so will result in a fine.

You will also be fined if you neglect one or several of your duties (30 DKK for neglecting one duty; 150 DKK for neglecting all). Should you fail to pay, a formal complaint will be filed against you to the Tenants' Council.

B)
This week you're responsible for cleaning the kitchen. This includes, but is not limited to;

* Taking out old newspapers and empty glass jars to the proper containers

* Vacuuming and washing the floor

* Sweeping the worktops [US: kitchen counters], the stoves, the kitchen table, the sofa table and the TV set.

* Washing the used tea towels, kitchen towels and dishcloths (90 degrees C -- no prewash!)

* Buying the items listed on the shopping list on the whiteboard. Keep the receipts and give them to Lise (room 237), and you will be reimbursed for your expenses.

* Generally keeping a sanitary standard in the kitchen. (That said, EVERYONE using the kitchen is responsible for cleaning up their own mess!)

Loqu's answer.
La respuesta de Loqu.


loqu wrote:A)
Aquí debajo está el cuadrante de cocina. Vuestras tareas están escritas en la lista que irá pasando de inquilino en inquilino.

Es importante que hagáis todas vuestras tareas, de modo que se mantenga la cocina limpia y agradable para todos. Si vas a estar ausente en la semana que te toca según el cuadrante, o algo te va a impedir realizar tus tareas, por favor intenta intercambiar la semana con alguien. Si no lo haces serás multado.

También serás multado si no cumples con una o varias de tus tareas (30 DKK por desatender una tarea; 150 DKK por desatenderlas todas). Si no pagas, se interpondrá una queja formal contra ti en el Consejo de los Inquilinos.


B)
Esta semana serás el responsable de limpiar la cocina. Esto incluye (aunque no exclusivamente):

* Tirar periódicos viejos y tarros vacíos en los contenedores adecuados.

* Aspirar y fregar el suelo.

* Limpiar la encimera, los fogones, la mesa de la cocina, la mesa del sofá y el televisor.

* Lavar los paños de cocina.
(See NOTE)

* Comprar los elementos escritos en la lista de compras del tablero. Guarda los recibos y dáselos a Lise (habitación 237), de modo que se te pueda reembolsar el dinero.

* Mantener, por lo general, unas condiciones higiénicas en la cocina (es decir, ¡TODO el que use la cocina es responsable de limpiar lo que ensucie!)


NOTE 1: I cannot find the difference between tea towels, kitchen towels and dishclothes :hmm: I think the three of them are translated by 'paños de cocina', but I'm not so sure. Do you include the napkins?

NOTE 2: My translation is predominantly European, using the European words and the 'vosotros' form. If you prefer a more American one please specify.

First of all; sorry if I posted my request to the wrong forum. To me, it looked like I was posting to the Translations forum. (I'm not your average Internet dumbass who clicks the first button he/she sees -- believe you me! ;))

Thank you very much for the translation, though. European/Iberian Spanish is fine, as our Spanish-speaking people are Europeans.

About the towel business; well, my disctionary isn't the best on the planet, and Danish is a master in inventing ridiculous words that don't have equivalents in other languages. That said, I suspect I was/am fishing after AmE kitchen towels = BrE kitchen towels, and so, to my modest ears 'los paños de cocina' gets the point across perfectly. :)

Again, muchas gracias! :)

You did, but translations from/to just one language don't belong in the Translations forum, but the respective Language-specific forum. The reason is that it is related to that language (and you're more likely to get an answer there).
Please correct my mistakes!

Then again maybe you won't. Thanks Car, I had wondered why my post requesting a translation was deleted in the forum labeled "translations". That explains it, thanks. Oh well, try somewhere else.

Aqui va la letra definitiva, ya completa.


{Diddy:}
Hey yo just turn me up
Yo yo it's been a long time
(ya turn me up just a lil bit more)
I wanna make sure they can feel me
Turn me up just a lil bit more
ya, like that

Can you feel me
Do that - do that - do it
Do that - do that - do it
Do that - do that- do it
Do that - do that- do it
Ooh yeah
On the dance floor
Yeah yeah yeah
Lets play a game
On the dance floor
(Oh yeah)
Yeah yeah yeah

Lets play a game
lets pretend for a second
you don't know who I am
and what I do, lets just put it do the side
I can feel your heart beating
I can hear you breathing
Look into your eyes, try to see into your mind
See into your soul
See no limits, to the levels me and you can go
When it's me that is in control
But it's something 'bout you that make me wanna change
I like the way you dance and the way you play the game
I like the way you take away the pain
The way you tell me that you want it, not saying a thing
The way you got me going got me goin, out of my brain
See us going at it, goin in and out of them lanes

I don't want your innocence
I don't want you to stutter
I don't want a committment
And I don't want you to suffer
I don't want your number
Baby, I want you to wonder
Want you to come up looking like it's something you wanna

{Christina:}
Tell me
what you thinkin about when got me waiting patiently
And usually I don't have to wait for nobody
But there's something bout you that really got me feelin weak
And I'm tryin to find the words to speak

Boy I got my eyes on you
Tell me what you wanna do
I can picture you in my room
Until the mornin
I don't even know your name
Boy, I need to know your name
I'm hopin that you feel the same
Tell me if you want it

I know you gonna like it (I know)
So tell me how you want it (tell me)
and you dont have to fight (you know)
cuz baby you're invited (baby)
I know you gonna like it (I know)
So tell me how you want it (tell me)
But you dont have to FIGHT it..you know
baby youre INVITED.. babe

Tell me ...

{Diddy:}
Ya dreams fulfilled, you rockin wit the best
Unforgivable, i'ma put ya limits to the test
You're pulsating, ya heart is beating out of your chest
You're hyperventilating, tryin to catch your breath (Don't stop)
Im the first Im the next Im the end
Im the pulse and of course ill make ya my thing
Look how I approach you, look how I expose you
Look how Ive studied every move, now I know you
I don't wanna control you, I wanna console you
And do everything that I told you (I told you)
get high wit me, come touch the sky wit me
Fly wit me, see, like the new wiser me?(Don't stop)
Im the dream, Im the one
Im the reason you come, Im a king
Im a hum, im a beast
Im the last thing your eyes see
the passion beside me is yours
now come try me c'mon


{Christina:}
Tell me
what you thinkin about when your hands is all on me
Cuz I've been thinking about all the possibilities
Ain't no other place that I really wanna be
cuz you swept me off my feet

Boy I got my eyes on you
Tell me what you wanna do
I can picture you in my room
Until the mornin
I don't even know your name
Boy I need to know your name
I'm hopin that you feel the same
Tell me if you want it

I know you gonna like it (I know)
So tell me how you want it (tell me)
and you dont have to fight (you don't)
cuz baby you're invited (baby)
I know you gonna like it (I know)
So tell me how you want it (tell me)
And you don't have to fight it (Baby you're invited)
Cause baby you're invited (Baby)

{Christina:}
I got a selection of the positions of affection
With no pressure
So tell me
Tell me how you want it, tell me how you want it babe
I got a selection of the positions of affection
With no pressure
So tell me
Tell me how you want it
Tell me how you want it babe

Do that - do that - do it
Do that - do that - do it
Do that - do that - do it
Do that - do that - do it

Hi malwoden,

I have tried to translate your song, but I'm afraid I cannot. This song is flamenco and it's too difficult for me to translate it into English, since there are too many local expressions of which I wouldn't be able to find a proper translation (faralaes, tablao) and metaphores (deshojar primaveras). I can try to do some not-as-good-as-I-would-wish translation tomorrow, I think it's better than nothing. Sorry for the late answer though.
