Steven Universe
« on: February 24, 2015, 02:01:09 pm »
I tried translating the Steven Universe theme but my Na'vi is not the best; any feedback would be appreciated!  :D

Ayoe lu "Crystal Gems"*
Frakrr zasyong ayoel kifkeyt
Txo nga fpìl san fo ke tsun sìk
Frakrr rasyun ayoel fya'ot
Tafral na'vil fìkifkeyä mong
Karnetit, Ämetsyìtit, sì Prrìlit...sì Stivenit


*"Crystal Gems" remains untranslated in several of the official dubs and afaik Na'vi doesn't have either of those words so I left it untranslated.

Original English:

I’ve never heard of this show before ;D
I had to look up that theme song :P YouTube be praised!

Ayoe lu "Crystal Gems" – You are right, in the German version it’s also Crystal Gems. So, if they call themselves that as part of a group you could also say Ayoer syaw (fko) “Crystal Gems” – (they) call us “C.G.”, i.e. we’re called C.G.
Frakrr zasyong ayoel kifkeyt – ‹asy› … :-\ it creeps up more and more :P Could work here; I don’t know what they do. So, if they solve crime or something like that it could word. Mind you, we still don’t know about the transitivity of zong but I assume it’s transitive as well.
Txo nga fpìl san fo ke tsun sìk – I don’t think the ‘air quote’ works here. Just use txo (ay)ngal* fpìl futa ayoe ke tsun (tsakem sivi)
Frakrr rasyun ayoel fya’ot
Tafral na’vil fìkifkeyä mong – Why Na’vi specifically? Why not just Sute for “people, persons”?
Karnetit, Ämetsyìtit, sì Prrìlit...sì Stivenit

Otherwise, good choices and good work ;) Now, I’m just waiting for you to sing it  ;D

They are a group that fights monsters, yeah. As for zong, I made it transitive to match the fourth line a little better. :Þ

That’s…a good question.  :-\ I guess I forgot that word existed, hrh.

Once the lyrics are finalized I'll give it a try.  ;)

Yeah. We definitely need more of the songs in this board recorded somehow! :)

(IMO, translation of pre-existing songs is a much harder job overall than to create one's own singer-songwriter style Na'vi song from scratch.)

Good attempt - it is better to start with simpler song, you have better chance to succeed :)

Not bad! :) Can you post final text? I couldn't catch it well and it seems to be different from OP
