Sfînt este Dumnezeu

Stăm în picioare şi ne ridicăm mîinile
Căci bucuria Dumnezeului e tăria noastră
Îngenunchem şi Îl slăvim acum
Cît de mare, cît de minunat este El!
Şi împreună cîntăm

Cor:
Sfînt este Domnul Dumnezeu atotputernic
Pămîntul este plin de slava Lui
Sfînt este Domnul Dumnezeu atotputernic
Pămîntul este plin de slava Lui
Pămîntul este plin de slava Lui

Stăm în picioare şi ne ridicăm mîinile

It would be very helpful if those rating translations as "poor" would please explain. I have looked over this translation and have not really found much wrong with it. If there is something I can learn, I certainly want to know.

Thanks,

I wouldn't have rated the translation as "awful". Maybe the reviewer didn't consider you used a religious vocabulary.

Try changing
forța - tăria
We bow down - Îngenunchem
worship - slăvim
glory - slava
It’s rising up - Se înalță
All around - Peste tot în jur,
It's the anthem of the Lord’s renown - Preaslăvit e numele Domnului (lui Dumnezeu)

So, the main problem seems to be not enough "slava". Smile It's not an Orthodox song, so it probably won't be rated as excellent. Or maybe the one who didn't like it is not Christian. I'm not a religious person myself, but I like some Christian songs.

I wondered if the person didn't like the song for some reason. I didn't expect it to be rated very high...I kind of did this for a challenge, as I'm not a religious person either and don't have an extensive religious vocabulary in any of my three languages (and dictionaries don't always offer the best choices), but "awful" didn't seem to fit a grammatically correct, reasonably accurate translation and I wondered if there was something I just wasn't seeing. Thanks for the suggestions, btw. I'll edit and add a little "slava" Smile

Katherine, don't forget to capitalize every letter of the pronouns that refer to/replace God (slava Lui).

Thanks Smile

I was afraid you'd get to hell or somethng because you didn't show Capital Respect.
