in which I harvest jam

I often give Slovak translators, especially those working on dubs and subtitles, a hard time for their stilted language (where "motherfucker" is commonly translated as something akin to "ruffian"), stupidity (I still recall episodes of Babylon 5 where the term "destroyer" was translated as "ničiteľ" - i.e. someone who destroys - instead of the proper nautical "torpédoborec") and general lack of creativity. This time, however, I want to highlight some inspired work translating the English idiom "to be up shit creek" in the 2003 version of The Italian Job. When I first caught it on TV some time ago I could not believe my ears and so I resolved to record it next time it airs and check whether I indeed heard what I heard. Luckily, I had the opportunity to do so recently - and even had the proper equipment ready to go - and so I present you with the clip in question (don't forget to turn on the subtitles).


The Slovak version used in this scene is "do X lekvár kosiť" which translates as "to go harvest/reap (as in 'using a scythe') jam/preserves/fruit spread to X" where X is a location. The most common version goes "do Kambodže lekvár kosiť" with X = Cambodia and it is in itself somewhat rare - indeed this was only the second time I had heard this phrase, hence my initial disbelief. The translator is therefore to be commended to have the guts to use such this colorful phrase, but that apparently wasn't enough for our intrepid friend, because they then replaced Cambodia with Jackson for the final "do Jacksonu lekvár kosiť." Why Jackson (and which Jackson), I don't know and probably never will, but damn, mad props.

rolex imitazioni said...

Più personalità del marchio Favre-Leuba Tag Heuer replica è evidente sul quadrante, che è relativamente semplice accanto ad altri orologi della famiglia Raider. Le lancette in particolare ti Patek Philippe replica dicono che questo non è solo un orologio generico Audemars Piguet replica casuale, e gli indici delle ore squadrati lucidati e applicati rolex replica sono facili da vedere e ricordano il design degli orologi sportivi degli anni '70. Le lancette e gli indici orologi replica delle ore hanno la vernice Super-LumiNova per visualizzare l'ora e la data. Una finestra alle 3 mostra la data, ma in modo da non rimuovere l'intero indicatore replica rolex delle 3. Intorno alla periferia del quadrante è presente un anello flangiato rialzato e angolato con una traccia dei minuti. Questo repliche rolex è sia un elemento attraente che aiuta ad aggiungere un gradito senso di profondità al quadrante. Aiuta anche il passaggio dalla lunetta al quadrante imitazioni rolex un po 'meno drammatico o improvviso.

Il mio unico problema con il quadrante è rolex falsi che la maggior parte sembra un po 'piatta. Le tre Rolex replica colorazioni del quadrante attualmente disponibili (nero, blu e grigio) sono tutte belle e replica orologi alla moda, ma la trama è un po 'semplice, secondo me, su questo grigio. Questo rolex falsi non mi rende meno come l'orologio, e penso ancora che il quadrante grigio sia bello, ma forse il quadrante blu con la sua imitazioni rolex finitura a raggi di sole sembra un po 'più "completo". Lo sento con una piccola quantità di trama o un modello il quadrante replica orologi rolex siti sicuri grigio sarebbe perfetto (al contrario di veramente buono). Niente può essere l'ideale, giusto? Questa è la mia unica lamentela importante con l'orologio, che altrimenti è eccellente.
