  4. Bonjour à tous, I need some help with my translation of this text. The top is the original and the French at the bottom is what I've changed it to... Can you read this and see if there are any grammar issues/words that are translated wrong? Merci beaucoup! Ashley ANGLAIS: At a loss for words: Jean-Luc Godard’s new movie plays wicked games with subtitles The world’s critics, gathered in Cannes to see Jean-Luc Godard’s latest film last week. Godard’s art of subtitles sent the hordes screaming after three minutes. How dare he? How dare he translate only one word in five? When a character on screen said “L’argent est un bien public”, the English caption on the screen read “money public good”. With never more than three words on screen, widely spaced and sometimes even joined together, no pronouns and no verbs, Godard did what no other film director will ever dream of achieving: say merde to reality. He has just signed his own suicide note with his latest film, aptly named Film Socialisme. By refusing to play the game of subtitles, Godard is making his film unexportable outside the ever-shrinking Francophone world. But even there, his film requires Francophones to have a smattering of German, Italian and Russian as whole scenes in those languages are not translated at all. When Franco-German politician Daniel Cohn Bendit asked Godard two weeks ago about translation, he replied that he didn’t believe in it. It is perhaps no surprise that Godard subverted his subtitles for a film that takes place on one of those anonymous Mediterranean cruises where thousands of people of a dozen different nationalities are forever crossing without meeting. Godard rejects a world seemingly brought together by globalization that has in fact created a new cultural Babel wherein the new lingua franca, English, doesn’t pacify or unify. “Don’t translate, learn languages,” said Godard to Cohn-Bendit. The New Wave enfant terrible may well have a point. Adapted from: Agnès Poirier, Guardian Weekly, 28 May 2010 FRANCAIS: Les mots se manquent : Le nouveau film de Jean-Luc Godard joue des espiègles jeux avec des sous-titres. Les critiques du monde, réunis à Cannes pour voir le dernier film de Jean-Luc Godard la semaine dernière. L’art de Godard de sous-titres envoyé l’essaimage crie après trois minutes. Comment oser-il ? Comment oser-il traduire un seul mot dans cinq ? Quand un personnage dans l’écran dit « L’argent est un bien public », le sous-titre anglais lire « money public good ». Avec ne plus de trois mots jamais dans l’écran, espace largement et parfois lié même, pas de pronoms et pas de verbes, Godard a fait quel aucun autre réalisateur irait rêver accomplir : dire merde à la réalité. Il a signé justement son propre not de suicide avec son dernier film, avec une grande pertinence appelée « Film Socialisme ». En refuserait a joué le jeu de sous-titres, Godard fait son film inexportable à l’extérieur de constante diminution monde francophone. Mais même là, son film exige des francophones d’avoir une poignée de l’allemande, l’italien et le russe car des scènes entières dans les langues ne sont pas traduire du tout. Quand le politicien franco-allemand Daniel Cohn Bendit a demandé de Godard il y a deux semaines sur la traduction, il a répondu qu’il ne croyait pas en elle. Ce n’est peut-être pas de surprise que Godard subverti ses sous-titres pour un film qui se déroule dans une croisière anonyme méditerranéenne où des milliers de gens qui une douzaine nationalités différentes sont toujours croisement sans rencontre. Godard a rejeté un monde apparemment mis en contact par la mondialisation qui a en fait cru une nouvelle culturelle Babel dans quoi la nouvelle lingua franca, anglais, à ne pas faire calmer ou unifier. « À ne pas faire traduire, apprendre des langues » dit Godard à Cohn-Bendit. La Vague Nouvelle enfant terrible c’est peut-être à un point. Adapter de : Agnès Poirier, Guardian Weekly, 28 mai 2010.

  9. Hello all, I am working on a project that requires a request to be translated in French, German, Italian and Spanish. I've used a translation app but don't trust it completely. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here's the situation: a group of study abroad students will be going overseas to work on conversational skills (France, Germany, Italy, Mexico). What would be a nice written way to ask people, politely, to engage in conversation with these students for the purpose of practice? Perhaps a translation of "I would appreciate practice speaking (French, German, Italian, Spanish)". The fewer words the better. Thanks so much everyone!
  10. Hi all, I'd like to introduce a new app called MemoLingo. It's an addictive game but whilst playing we hope you will also learn new words in a new language. (or test out a language you vaguely know). Please give it a go and provide some feedback. We are actively looking to improve based on the responses we are getting. We think our app is less boring that the other language apps out there and are on a mission to make the most fun and effective language learning app! There are 10 language to choose from Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish and more will be added soon. Please help us out. You can find more information here: http://www.memolingoapp.com available for IPad, IPhone, iPod: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1055010946 available on Android play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.trianglecarrot.memolingo actually free on Android Amazon app store: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Triangle-Carrot-Ltd-MemoLingo-Languages/dp/B018BTCHGQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=mobile-apps&ie=UTF8&qid=1449827244&sr=1-1&keywords=memolingo
  11. It's not my site but... I believe you all might find it useful. WordBrewery is a new website that pulls sentences from the news. They are then categorized by level and topic. There's also a search bar so you can find specific words in context. Audio, translation, and the source article are included. It's also possible to save words and sentences to lists, and export these to Anki. It's currently free to use. Like every other app, all you need to do is register. Personally... I use it for German, as it doesn't have Hindi yet. But it's rather nice, because it's hard to find advanced materials for many languages I'm interested in, such as Modern Greek and Arabic. I use it as a warm up and to find context to words. I'm also considering using Anki, so if I decide to, I'll start exporting all my lists. Current Languages: Arabic Spanish French Italian Portuguese English Swedish Russian Serbian Japanese Modern Greek Polish Hungarian Ukrainian Norwegian Korean Chinese German

  18. Hello, If you are struggling with grammar, memorizing new words or other boring stuff while learning a language, I have found a great language learning platform to study 100+languages for free. It's called Bliu Bliu (https://bliubliu.com/) Basically you read random content from the internet which was selected according to your level of competence. You press words that you already know and that’s how you "level up". No memorizing, no translations, you just figure out meanings like a baby from context. Also no grammar learning you just figure out it from context too. You can add your own books there as well. Another thing they are offering is 30days challenges where you talk with a native and get all info you need to improve. They have about 10ish different language challenges and they actually work! I was surprised to see my Japanese improve so fast and I could actually speak by the end of the month. this one: https://bliubliu.com/en/learning/challenge/learn-japanese-in-30-days-1/#video-102 I highly recommend it to busy people and for those who hate memorizing boring stuff, it's a lot of fun and not at all pricey.
