Help translating English questions to persian (AP)

Postby PNNM » 2015-11-16, 10:55

Hi, we are making a short documentary on Afghan refugees crossing the border to Norway. Because of the language barrier, we have made a short sheet of questions which we can hopefully just point to and they will answer (translation will happen in post-production).
_____________________________________________________________
We are filmmakers form Norway. We are making a film about the experiences of refugees who are trying to find their way to Norway.

1. You are soon arriving to Norway, what do you hope will happen when you arrive?

2. What are your hopes and dreams for a new life? What is the best that can happen?

3. Can you please say something about what is the worst thing about having to flee your homeland?

4. Can you also try to say something about what is the best about breaking out of your country and heading for something new?

5. Did you bring a possession as a "memory"/keepsake from home? Can you please show us? Why did you bring this particular thing?

6. Who did you have to leave behind to come here?

7. What did your mother/father say when you told her that you wanted to flee, and how did it make you feel?

8. Do you want to send a greeting to someone, friends or family back home? Please look into the kamera and say your greeting.

9. Can you understand that some people are sceptical to all the refugees who are coming into their countries. What would you like to say to them?

10. We are planning to travel like "refugees" but will do it in the opposite direction, from here and all the way down to Afghanistan. What do you think about that?

11. What is your favorite football team?

We don't want to resort to google-translate and look like idiots, so if anyone can help with the translation we wil be eternally grateful :D

Hi,
I appreciate your effort. Can't imagine how they feel out there in those beautiful but frozen areas.
I'm not from Afghanistan & this is an Iranian Farsi translation. But they understand it well. Only some expressions differ.
If you couldn't find any Afghan to translate it,don't worry, use mine. But take into consideration that the majority of Afghan people speak Farsi, but not all of them. There are Pashtoons & Ozbaks (Turkish language) too.
I can also make a PDF or image file of this text with better fonts , It may be easier for you to print that. Or you might want to print each question on a card & show them one by one. Let me know if you needed any other format.

Wish you luck! :waytogo:


ما فیلمسازانی نروژی هستیم و فیلمی درباره تجربیات پناهندگانی که تلاش می کنند به نروژ راه پیدا کنند, می سازیم

1. شما بزودی به نروژ می رسید, امیداورید وقتی رسیدید چه اتفاقی برای شما بیافتد؟

2. امیدها و رویاهایتان برای یک زندگی جدید چیست ؟ بهترین چیزی که ممکن است برایتان اتفاق بیافتد کدام است؟

3. worst thing about having to flee your homeland
What do you mean exactly? The worst thing that made you leave your homeland? if so:

3. آیا می توانید در پیوند با بدترین چیزی که باعث شد وطن تان را ترک کنید برایمان گپ بزنید؟

Or: The worst feeling or experience that a refugee has (because of leaving her homeland)? if so:

3. آیا می توانید برایمان تعریف کنید چه چیز ترک کردن اجباری وطن از همه بدتر است؟

(or you can ask both of above questions! )

4.آیا می توانید همچنین برایمان تعریف کنید چه چیز ترک کردن کشورتان و رهسپاری به زندگی جدید از همه بهتر است ؟

5. آیا از وطن چیزی را به عنوان یادگاری همراه آورده اید؟ اگرآورده اید آیا می شود آن را به ما نشان دهید وبگویید چرا این چیز بخصوص را با خود آورده اید؟

6. چه عزیزانی را پشت سرتان جاگذاشته اید و به اینجا آمده اید؟

7. وقتی به پدر یا مادرتان گفتید که می خواهید فرار کنید به شما چه گفتند؟ چه احساسی داشتید؟

8.آیا می خواهید به شخصی,دوستی یا خویشاوندی در وطن سلام یا پیغامی بفرستید؟ لطفا به دوربین ئگاه کنید و با آنها گپ بزنید.

9. آیا می توانید درک کنید که بعضی مردمان به پناهندگانی که وارد کشورشان می شوند بدبین هستند . دوست دارید به آنها چه بگویید؟

10. ما قصد داریم مثل "پناهندگان" مسافرت کنیم ولی در مسیر عکس , یعنی از اینجا تا افغانستان . دراین باره چه فکر می کنید؟

11. تیم فوتبال محبوبتان کدام است؟

You can also send your text with or without my translation to BBC.Com/Persian. They have native Afghan presenters & may help you. This is their email: persian@bbc.co.uk

You may also find some Afghans who live in Norway and they may even accompany & help you.
