Italian translation game

The rules are simple: translate the given sentence into Italian, then give a sentence for the next person to translate. :)


Let's start!

Have you visited Rome?

Oh finalmente questo gioco anche qui nella sezione italiana :-)

Forse dovremmo specificare se i pronomi in questione sono al maschile o al femminile, se you è singolare o plurale e se vogliamo che la frase sia formale (quindi con l'utilizzo del lei) o colloquiale...

Oppure lasciamo liberi i traduttori di scegliere?

Hai mai visitato Roma?

I'm not sure what you mean by that.

Non sono sicuro di ciò che vuoi dire con questo.

Yeah, that's what I expected you to say.

Sì infatti, mi aspettavo che l'avresti detto.

E' meglio tradurre in questo modo: «Sì, questo è quello [oppure: ciò] che mi aspettavo che tu dicessi».

La frase di Ektoras («mi aspettavo che l'avresti detto») in inglese - se non sbaglio! - dovrebbe essere questa: «I expected you would say that».

E' meglio evitare ripetizioni di parole. Io direi semplicemente: «Mi prude ancora dove mi ha punto l'ape». Viene più naturale. :)

Can't you ask him yourself?

Sorge un sole rosso. Davanti a noi c'è un giorno tempestoso.

Red sun is rising. The blood was shed last night.

The phrase is my imperfect recollection of a phrase from the Lord of the Rings:
A red sun rises. Blood has been spilled this night.

It is translated to Italian as: Sorge un sole rosso. Stanotte è stato versato del sangue.

I will always regret not having stayed.

Mi dispiacerà per sempre di non essere rimasto.

I was supposed to arrive at six, but my train was cancelled and I arrived two hours late.

Dovevo arrivare alle sei, ma il mio treno è stato soppresso e sono arrivato con due ore in ritardo.

My walruses got out and are now running through the streets.
