Translation help
« on: December 21, 2020, 09:22:06 am »
Hi,

I need help to translate an Oath. and I don´t aks that smbody translates it for me but to simply help me.
the oath:

I am the herald of the heavens
wit all your heart listen, look.

I have a light inside me
I will let it grow
that everyone can see it.

so when the darkness commes
and the day becommes the night
I will guide you through the storm

stay by my side
an my shild will protect you.

I will keep Posting updates as I progress with the translation (it will be slow)
if sombody has tiem and wants to help me: you can post her write me a pm.
or call each other ( discord/ skype etc) and translate it together. (to warn you I´m realy not good in leraning new languages so you will ned patience)

TRANSLATION (I don´t think it is realy good):
the secound line is the same as in the song so it should be correct, I hope.

ohe vin ftxulì´uyu taw
Nìftxavang ting mikyun, ting nari

This sounds a lot like the song by Maisy Kay and TheFatRat "The Storm". I wonder if it's related or a coincidence :o

I did rewrite most ot it but because I keept the style plus the songtext and that what I want to express with the oath are similiar it ended up pretty similiar.

I see! That makes sense. I like it! :D


I'll see if I can find some time to help translate this. In the meantime, maybe someone here could help out too :)

Maybe I am a bit lost here, but what you wanted to say/translate exactly?

I don't think that makes sense here, you're intending to say "keeps glowing grow".
So you have to choose what verb to keep.
