Who on here translates Greek songs to English. I have some songs I would like translated, but I only ask of people who's translations I like. I know of some people on here that do good translations, I'm looking for more.

No one on here seems to do translations anymore. Sad smile

Hi,

Please ask for translations in the forum only if you requested it and it took too long for anyone to complete it. Also, please be patient - you have 954 completed requests, many of which Greek-English, and you complain about people not making translations? And I find your statement that you want translations from people you like rude - be grateful people are spending their time to fulfil your requests at all, when you have submitted only a few translations made by yourself in return.

Greek is not a very popular language around, I don't see many requests from/into it being completed. It's better not to ask 'people whose translations you like' and ask one of the several users we have that know that language.

It depends on what kind of songs they request. For example most of the Greek songs although they seem easy in Greek it's difficult to translate the metaphors or poetic words they use.
On the other hand most of the English songs have idioms and slang which is very close to Greek however if you're not used to them you can't understand what the song says.

Personally I like to translate R&B , Hip/Hop , Rap songs from English to Greek because I'm used to the language they use but I don't see many other users preferring these songs or when they translate the rap parts they do it literally (or just skip it).

Yes there are many people speaking Greek in here but the result is not always good. Of course the same happens in Spanish, French etc.
