An 1 Minute Translation.

Discussion in 'Italian Language' started by Georges, Feb 5, 2017.

  1. Hello people!
    I'm new here.
    I am a great fan of the Italian language and I really want to learn it.
    It's an awesome language, especially for operas.
    I'm trying to learn alone for a year then I'll go to a teacher, cause I sing and my singing teacher says I don't have a very good accent...
    Anyway, there is a little poem I try to translate for a week now, but I fail and Google translate is bad for this purpose.
    What I want is someone to take a moment and translate it for me.
    It's really sort.
    But some words, I dont know their translation.
    So here is it.
    "
    I wondered why-----1
    you couldn't see
    that I loved you.
    I wondered why
    you didn't love me.----5
    But now, I see it all.
    It clear to me.
    I don't care,
    that my love
    for you was-----10
    unfulfilled.
    I feel no pain.
    I feel nothing.
    I am dead.---14
    "

    It's really weird, it doesnt make sense at all, but that's what I like about it.
    Anyway, I'm kinda confused because I struggle separating the lines etc because when I go line by line I fail at "connecting" them.
    I'd be glad to solve this one.
    Thanks in advance!

  2. Really beautiful poem, have you written this yourself or have you found it somewhere?

    I think a kind soul will help you in this, as translator in fact would do a poor job. I just don't know it will only take one minute, as many times there are many things about translation that make it last a lot longer. :)

  3. Heh, yeah, actually I have written this myself, it was kinda easy because it was supposed to be sort and just plain emotion, not expert vocabulary, just emotional expression. Thanks for your good words. I though it was a nonsense trash. You know how to make one feel better.
    On point, ok you're right it might take more than a minute, but I guess someone can spare his time. It's not a book.

  4. LOL, it's not nonsense trash, and I am glad it made you feel better. :) I was reading it again, and apparently your heart got broken by someone who speaks Italian? :) I hope it's already fixed, these stuff happens to everyone!

  6. No problem lol, next time you'll break the heart of an Italian girl.I got my heart broken once by a Latvian girl haha, I suppose the foreign factor plays a big role, the attraction for a different culture. :)
     
  7. Hahah, yeah to a certain extend for sure.
    It feels bad though.
    Anyway, I still need this translation.
    Awaiting means pressure, for matters like this.
     
  8. LOL, no one is doing it right? :) Have you tried a paid service? For such a short piece of text maybe you could get it done as a free sample? Or maybe sending a PM to the admin or a member you see speaks Italian?
     
  9. Meh, I don't wanna bother people and paid service as you said is a bit far fetched for something that sort. Fingers crossed someone who knows will see it and take the time to translate it...
     
  10. Yeah, if you are not in a hurry you might as well wait, and someone apart from me might come to this thread and translate it. :) If you want it for a Portuguese girl I can do it for you. :D
