    Default Re: song translating

    Hi There

    I dont know if I can "explain" the process, but I can tell you that for what I know, when translating songs and poems what you have to do is grasp the idea, and then translate. Never try to translate word for word, cause its impossible.. You'll never be able to make it rhyme that way...

    Anyone else has input on this? It might be interesting if someone that does this for a living would have sth to say.
