It's like trademarks for products right
I don’t remember but it was from spanish to english
I've never been abroad but I've seen movies/shows like uh CSI with Chinese subtitles online
most likely a movie
it was a movie tranlated spanish to english
i do not
La casa de papel = Money Heist
Is that why their subtitles are sometimes not that accurate with slang and stuff, because they are trying to use the least amount of lines/characters as possible?
Titles are interesting, I had to do something for my Japanese class and the Peanuts movies often have titles in Japanese that involve Snoopy
and it's weird considering how Snoopy to us in the US isn't a big deal but over there he is
Because you could either go literal or go for something figurative
Yeah similarly I’ve noticed that in anime and Korean shows with subtitles versus shows that are dubbed over with English the translations are so different because the subtitles leave out a lot of nuance.
Localizations for games can result in some differences too which are interesting
I would imagine the entertainment industry, mostly in streaming are booming right now
how many languages do you speak?
I think the simultaneous was interesting, I saw there was really brief notes. With consecutive I would be worried about controlling volume and having to maintain focus between both
Both seem really memory intense
that would hurt my brain, I cannot register info that quickly
If you were doing simultaneous I would imagine it would have to be a field you really really know like the back of your hand and at that point can just sort of summarize
so simultaneous is when wait until after the other person is done speaking to translate it or is that consecutive?
I do a little
consecutive- strung together, simultaneous- you switch
Consecutive = one after the after
simulaneous = together
Japanese has 9 characters at the bottom
Wait no 10, sorry
I am blind but it is 9 but either way really interesting how the languages are in character size
The food in metric is interesting, I know here in the US the only people who rely on metric systems a lot are baking something really finicky or are calorie counting
Thank you so much!
