Wiktionary:Translation requests

If you would like to have a text translated, this is the right place for your request. Please add

  1. the source language: the language your text is in
  2. the destination language: the language you want your text to be in
  3. the text: what you want translated; a word, phrase, sentence, or even paragraph (but not a wall of text!)

For fast translations, you might consider using Google Translate or Bing Translator. Both sites make imperfect translations in a wide range of languages. However, if you are looking for something for a tattoo, it is highly recommended that you get a translation from a person in real life who knows that language instead. Wiktionary cannot be held responsible in any way for these kinds of things.

Requests without a destination language may be subject to deletion without warning.

From Japanese to EnglishEdit

The video game Mega Twins is called Chiki Chiki Boys (チキチキボーイズ) in Japanese. What does チキ mean, if anything; or does it suggest any onomatopoiea etc.? Equinox 20:27, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

(@Eirikr, —Stephen (Talk) 01:17, 11 September 2018 (UTC))
@Equinox, I can't find anything definitive. The JA-market start screen has "Chiki Chiki" in romaji, offering no clear clues there. There isn't any term チキチキ in any resource I can find. The closest is suffix ちき (chiki) found in terms like いんちき (inchiki, bogus, quack), とんちき (tonchiki, dullard, idiot), 高%慢ちき (kōmanchiki, conceited, arrogant), where ちき (chiki) appears to be a shift in pronunciation from adjective-forming and Chinese-derived suffix (teki, -ish, -like, having that quality). However, the meaning and usage don't fit.
Assuming a more generalized play on words, this could be reduplication of other terms, perhaps:
  • 知己 (chiki, a good friend)
  • 稚気, 穉気 (chiki, a youthful or childlike appearance or manner)
  • 杠秤, 扛秤 (chiki, chigi, a big balance weight used to measure the weight of large objects) -- dunno if the game has any elements of carrying around big heavy things?
  • 地気 (chiki, the spirit of the earth; vapor or gas arising from the ground; the climate of a land; air in the soil; electrical grounding)
Do any of those sound relevant for the game? I'm wholly unfamiliar with this title.
@Stephen, thanks again for the ping.

Hmm, who knows. "Childlike" might be a good fit thematically, as the heroes are two young princes. Thanks for the suggestions. Equinox 21:29, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
@Equinox - FWIW, in the Japanese Wikipedia I found some other works using チキチキ. Searching for "チキチキ" there currently returns 242 results (search link), including repeated mentions of the same things. I'll list some of those works here for comparison, but this will not be exhaustive as I didn't check all 242 results. I'll leave some notes here too, but I should mention I'm not great at reading Japanese yet. I believe most of those seem like onomatopeias and/or nonsense.

I usually remove them during archiving. I can't be sure what is happening with these. The person requesting help might be deliberately making up silly examples (who knows why?), or the person requesting may have received the text in a comment {or something along those lines), and might be making a legitimate request. It's impossible to know. In the current case, there are some unusual errors (i.e., unusual for a native German speaker), but the language use is advanced and I think only a native German speaker could have written it). —Stephen (Talk) 17:47, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
@Stephen G. Brown: Sorry, Stephen but I agree with User:Metaknowledge here. You give the pranksters the benefit of the doubt but they take advantage of the system and your kindness. These types of requests should be immediately removed. Most of the requesters never come back even to acknowledge they have read your translation. I don't know why you think any of these can be honest requests. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 02:11, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I know that you think the same way, but you can't possibly know that all those who you think are pranksters actually are. They might be, might not be. In any case, I don't see how this activity benefits a prankster. Little children might find it an amusing activity. And it's not only the prankster who don't come back to acknowledge translations, virtually no one does it. It's extremely rare for any anonymous user to acknowledge a translation in any way. The reason why I think some of these may be honest requests is because I myself have encountered odd words and phrases that mystified me, and when I asked someone who spoke the language to explain, I was told that it was nonsense, misspelled, or whatever. All of them might be valid requests, and all of them might be pranks. If pranksters do it, they're wasting their time, since it doesn't bother me and it does them no good. —Stephen (Talk) 02:04, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

This was not written by a native speaker and does not make sense. Literally:
In the event of a fire, going down in a lift is prohibited even if the staircase collapses. On the other hand, a window can go down using stairs, but it is dangerous if it is on the 200th floor, as a person can kill him/herself when he/she reaches the ground. The best scenario is when the fire breaks out in the basement or other buildings.

There was a exerpt from "The Monolog of Space" by E. N. Scrapton आपकी मालकिन को नमस्कार और संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका की अच्छी यात्रा! मैंने पुस्तकालय में चमगादड़ के बारे में कुछ किताबें उधार ली ताकि वे उनके बारे में अधिक वैज्ञानिक बन सकें। मैंने मध्ययुगीन शूरवीरों के बारे में एक वृत्तचित्र भी देखा लेकिन मैं खुद तलवार से लड़ नहीं सकता। यह जादू और जादूगरों के बारे में अधिक है, जिनके पास चमगादड़ और मध्ययुगीन शूरवीरों के बराबर शक्ति है जो मुझे लगता है। संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका में यह आपके जैसा ही है: दुनिया में हर जगह चमगादड़ हैं, लेकिन उनके जादूगर और मध्ययुगीन नाइट्स सभी नकली हैं। यह मूल अमेरिकी लोककथाओं और परंपराओं के साथ और अधिक करना है।

Hello to your mistress and bon voyage in the United States! I borrowed some books about bats from the library so they could learn more about them. I also saw a documentary about medieval knights, but I myself cannot fight with a sword. I think it's more about magic and magicians who have the same powers as bats and medieval knights. In the United States, it's similar: There are bats everywhere in the world, but their magicians and medieval knights are all fake.

French to EnglishEdit

Introduction à la Musique Classique

La Musique Classique se divise ordinairement en Trois Catégories :

  • la Musique Classique proprement dite
  • la Musique Classique semi-préparée
  • la Musique Classique allégorique
  • les Musiques Classiques intermédiaires et structurées

Ce Mode de Division de la Musique Classique est le plus utilisé à travers le Monde Musical Scientifique International, parce que cela correspond alternativement à une conception hétéronormée et à une conception métastructurale de la Musique. Il existe une cinquième Division parfois secrètement utilisée à l'intérieur des Hérétiques, mais cela n'est plus Internationalement accepté. Il est conseillé autrement d'alterner les incidences de l'une ou de l'autre Division, afin de parfaire sa connaissance de la Musique Classique.

Par exemple, un ORATORIO se dépeint autrement que du CLASSICISME ORATORIO+SYNECDOQUE : c'est un atout indéniable de cette Classification Internationalement Acceptée, ainsi qu'un progrès numériquement qualitatif de l'espace qui nous sépare de la Musique Classique (à l'exception toutefois des Zones Non Définies). En matière d'autodidactisme, cette méthode est une des meilleures pour les Primo-Apprenants, en tant qu'elle est complétive et subclavecinique. En dehors des arrangements et théories sus-cités, c'est le choix des Aspirants Musiciens qui convient le mieux au but qu'on se fixe après l'inspection générale de tous les cas de figure.

I'm not too familiar with latest postal and delivery rules in some Russian companies but it seems to be often used with (which sends books) when returning the delivered goods. The meaning is "with the minimal assessment" (of the value) i.e. the lowest price of the actual goods, such as returned books. Not sure if it affects the price or the insurance but it is a suggestion made by when returning goods. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 12:18, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Sorry if I didn't explain it clearly. Will it make it easier if I say that Ozon is asking you to make the value of the books you're returning the minimal when filling in the forms?

In the computer game version of Risk, there is a "real-time" mode that has its Attack Resolution Phase by all players acted in one spontaneous turn through certain steps in order: Border Clashes (if two invading armies meet each other), followed by Mass Invasions (if two or more territories attack a single territory), singular invasions, Spoils-of-war (belligerents of a mass invasion fight for who gets to occupy the nation), and Surge Attacks (if any prior planned invasions are successful and move on to another place in the same turn). The territories of Hawaii, Philippines, and the Falkland islands were also added to the game.

In ancient times, there were amphorae that gathered in the Greek and Roman boats, but did not gather as well as the Greeks and the Romans themselves, because the ancients kept fish in vinegar or salt in their amphorae there.

"How do you know that you're the one? You don't know. It's a shot in the dark. You take it, or you become a normal civilised person from 8 to 5. Get married, have children, Christmas together... here comes Grandma, Hi Grandma! Come on in, Hi you... you know. Shit, I couldn't take that! I'd rather murder myself... I guess the blood of me couldn't stand the whole thing that's going on, the ordinariness of life. I couldn't stand family life, I couldn't stand job life, I couldn't stand anything I looked at. I just decided I either had to starve, make it, go mad, come through, or do something. Some-I could not do the 8-to-5. I would have been a suicide, something. Something, I'm sorry. I could not accept the snail's pace, 8-to-5, Johnny Carson, Happy Birthday, Christmas, New Year... to me this is the sickest of all sick things..."

Heiraten, Kinder haben, Weihnachten gemeinsam genießen ... hier kommt Oma, hallo Oma! Komm rein, hallo du ... Sie wissen es schon. Scheiße, das konnte ich nicht ertragen! Ich würde mich lieber selbst umbringen ... Ich denke, dass mein Blut die ganze Sache, die Alltäglichkeit des Lebens, nicht ertragen konnte. Ich konnte das Familienleben nicht ertragen, ich konnte das Berufsleben nicht ertragen, ich konnte nichts ertragen, was ich sah. Ich entschied nur, dass ich entweder hungern musste, Erfolg haben, verrückt werden, durchkommen oder etwas tun sollte. Etwas, das auf der Tatsache beruhte, dass ich die 8 to 5-Sache nicht machen konnte, aber ich wäre ein Selbstmord gewesen. Etwas. Es tut mir leid.

From Mandarin Chinese to English 03:37, 17 November 2018 (UTC)Edit

After a good translation is made, this phrase could be used as example phrase (zh-x) on one of the relevant pages on Wiktionary- it is reflective of an authentic Mandarin Chinese course name.

Request several translations of the phrase '汉语课堂教学案例' from Mandarin into English. Translations into all varieties of English are probably going to be useful to me in making my final decision. The translation I decide upon in the coming days will likely become a precedent that will be used on the transcripts of students from around the world for decades.

'汉语课堂教学案例' is the name of a class conducted in Mandarin Chinese by a professor who is a Chinese citizen to high-level (高级班) Chinese language students from around the world who are 1) completing an undergraduate degree in Chinese language studies in Mainland China, 2) have passed HSK 6 and 3) are considering further education with the end result that they would teach Chinese to people in their home countries. Class content is the analysis of various methodologies used in teaching Mandarin to students from around the world, writing class plans, etc.

Here are the translations I have so far:

Current translation: "Cases on Chinese classes" (seems like an ambiguous or meaningless phrase)

fanyi . youdao . com: "Chinese classroom teaching case" (could be a meaningful English language phrase but does not seem suitable as the name of a class)

Personal translation: "Case Studies in Chinese Classroom Instruction" (came up with it off the top of my head, seems way better than the current version, but does it really MESH with the way this kind of class would be described at institutions of higher learning throughout the world?)

Also, please let me know what you think of the title of the course itself: is '汉语课堂教学案例' appropriate given the description I gave? I am sure it is, but let me know if you if you think there's a problem.

Again, after a good translation is made, this phrase could be used as example phrase (zh-x) on one of the relevant pages on Wiktionary- it is reflective of an authentic Mandarin Chinese course name.

For a thread I'm thinking of making in the German section of Literotica.

What I want translated:

This music is fucking weird, but I like it.
The guidelines for posting your links in this thread are simple:
1. The music you link to should be sufficiently weird.
2. You have to actually like such music (perhaps have listened to it at least 6 times).

Google's translation:

Diese Musik ist verdammt komisch, aber ich mag sie.
Die Richtlinien zum Posten Ihrer Links in diesem Thread sind einfach:
1. Die Musik, zu der Sie einen Link erstellen, sollte ausreichend komisch sein.
2. Man muss solche Musik eigentlich mögen (vielleicht mindestens 6 mal gehört).

When I translate it back:

This music is damn funny, but I like it.
The guidelines for posting your links in this thread are simple:
1. The music to which you create a link should be sufficiently funny.
2. You really need to like such music (maybe heard at least 6 times).


I rather not use a German translation of "damn," it's variants, or any other term or expression that's somewhat sacrilegious.
I might also want to be less severe in my vulgarity and use the equivalent of "frickin'" (maybe frikin') instead.

"This music is frikin' weird, but I like it."

Google's translating of "weird" and "actually" into "funny" and "really" also seem suspect.

"ficken" seems to have no adjective use that fucking#Adjective does, while frickin' has no German equivalent.

"weird has maybe geheimnisvoll, unheimlich, übernatürlich; seltsam, komisch, eigenartig, merkwürdig; and sonderbar, based on "having supernatural or preternatural power," "having an unusually strange character or behaviour," and "deviating from the normal; bizarre."

"actually" has "eigentlich" as a German translation.

Thank you for your time and effort.   :D

@TAKASUGI Shinji? (is there a typo?) —Suzukaze-c 08:53, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
It is a typo of 泣いて叫ばな、気づい貰えん in Osaka dialect, which would be いてさけばないと、づいてもらえない in Standard Japanese. “If you don’t cry out loud, nobody will notice you.” By the way, the arrows in the drawing are just a metaphor of personal attacks (such as SNS or school bullying), not real arrows.TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 09:59, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

From English to GermanEdit

A few more quotes from the poet Charles Bukowski, from a different transcript:

"This is the way it goes, almost everywhere, with everybody and everything, as fiercely in the hinterlands, the black swan burns."

"I can't name it. It's just there, the thing is there. I have to go see it. The monster, the god, the rat, the snail... whatever's out there, I have to go see it, and look at it. And endure it, and maybe not endure it but, it's needed... that's all. I really can't explain it. If I could, I wouldn't go."

-- 10:13, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

„So geht es fast überall, mit jedem und allem, so heftig im Hinterland brennt der Schwarzschwan.“
„Ich kann es nicht nennen. Es ist einfach da, die Sache ist da. Ich muss es sehen. Das Monster, der Gott, die Ratte, die Schnecke ... was auch immer da draußen ist, ich muss es sehen und ansehen. Und es ertragen oder vielleicht nicht ertragen, aber es ist nötig ... das ist alles. Ich kann es wirklich nicht erklären. Wenn ich könnte, würde ich es nicht sehen.“ —Stephen (Talk) 17:53, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

I love you only because it's you the one I love; I hate you deeply, and hating you Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Maybe January light will consume My heart with its cruel Ray, stealing my key to true calm.

In this part of the story I am the one who Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you, Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.

Hindi ko iniibig ka, kung gayon mahal kita;
Una mahal kita, at pagkatapos ay hindi ko,
Naghihintay ako para sa iyo, kung kaya't hindi ako naghihintay;
Ang aking puso ay nagbabago mula sa yelo hanggang sa apoy.
Mahal kita dahil mahal kita;
Napopoot ako sa iyo, at dahil napopoot ako sa iyo,
Ako ay nasasabik tungkol sa iyo, at ang sukatan ng aking pagbabago ng pag-ibig
Ay na hindi kita nakikita, ngunit mahal ko kayo nang walang taros.
Siguro ang liwanag ng Enero ay ubusin
Ang aking puso sa mga malupit na ray nito,
Na hinaharangan ang aking landas tungo sa tunay na kapayapaan.
Sa bahaging ito ng kuwento, mamatay ako,
Ako lamang, at ako ay mamatay ng pag-ibig dahil mahal kita,
Dahil mahal kita, mahal ko, sa apoy at dugo. —Stephen (Talk) 21:00, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

  • — Ceci est un livre.
  • — Ce n’est pas un livre. —Stephen (Talk) 21:05, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
"Qu’est-ce que c’est ça ?" is used to show astonishment, surprise — Everyday language: "Qu’est-ce que c’est ?" — Colloquial: "C'est quoi ?" — Formal, elevated language: "Qu'est-ce ?" --AldoSyrt (talk) 18:10, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@AldoSyrt, Stephen G. Brown: I think "Qu'est-ce que c'est ça ?" sounds slightly strange; at least it needs a comma (or a pause in speech) at the right place: "Qu'est-ce que c'est, ça ?". Otherwise I'd rather say "Qu'est-ce que c'est que ça ?". Per utramque cavernam 23:58, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Another option would be "Qu'est-ce que cela / ceci ?". Per utramque cavernam 00:00, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
We can also use "Qu'est-ce que c'est que ça ?", "Qu'est-ce que cela / ceci ?". All these sentences belong to different registers of French. This translation give an idea of the large spectrum of French register. In French, punctuation is very difficult, if we stick to prescriptive grammar. Sometimes a pause in a speech is not transcribed by a comma and conversly some commas are not reproduced in the speech. In this case I do not use a comma and I stress the last word "ça", but I'm not a grammarian. --AldoSyrt (talk) 09:39, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

From [Korean] to [romanized Korean] (15:20, 10 January 2019 (UTC))Edit

How would be the standard way to romanize the name of this person, if possible?

  • 박은서

She is a character from the South Korean movie The Ring Virus (1998).

She is a version of Sadako Yamamura with a different name.

Both Wikipedia articles linked above have her name written as "Park Eun-Suh". I tried to use our Korean modules and got "bageunseo".

Thanks in advance. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 15:20, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Korean individuals follow their own preferences for romanizing their names. is very commonly romanized as "Park" because in the British pronunciation, -ar- is pronounced like the -a- in "father". It's not the American pronunciation of -ar-. In the modern standard Korean romanization system, the sound of -u- in "but" (/ʌ/) is represented by "eo" (seo), but it is common practice in English to represent that sound as "uh" (suh). So 박은서 could be romanized as "Bak Eun-Seo", which would be technically correct, but Korean people usually prefer "Park Eun-Suh" (/pak.ɯn.sʌ/). —Stephen (Talk) 01:06, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
@Stephen G. Brown: Thanks, now I understand.
One more question: Which part is the given name and which is the surname? --Daniel Carrero (talk) 03:07, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
"Park" is the surname. "Eun-Suh" is the given name. Same thing with Chinese and Japanese names. Mao Zedong (Chairman Mao), Kim Jong-un (Supreme Leader Kim); Abe Shinzō 安倍晋三 (Abe-san). —Stephen (Talk) 08:13, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
