I'm here to try to make acceptable translations, improving my language skills and having fun in the process. There's nothing I like more than discussing translation choices, trying to figure out how to better do justice to the original.
I an no professional of any sort and do not claim to reach the quality of a real translator. I'm just trying to do a decent amateur work.
Therefore, any constructive comment is welcome on any of my translations, be it to point out a single typo, as long as the goal is to come up with a better result in the end.
.
Apart from my native French, English is the only language I consider myself fluent in. I mostly learned it reading books, watching movies and translating as a hobby, but I've been doing this for a couple of decades now, so I think I've got the hang of it eventually.
Russian and German I understand just enough to do some translations into French or English, preferably with a bit of native help.
French allows me to guess a bit of Italian and Spanish, Russian gives me some vague idea of some other Slavic languages.
I know a couple hundred words of Japanese, but I was too lazy to learn how to read it.
As a student, being pestered by maths and physics lead to the painful discovery of the Greek alphabet, one letter at a time.
My job allowed me to become rather fluent in basic suburban French yoofspeak, but unfortunately I consider rap at large far below rubbish, so I only rarely use this amusing skill to drag the said rubbish through the language barrier.
The rest of the languages of the world are a sweet mystery to me.

About me

Кулаками, если стены бить,
То однажды стены разнесёшь.

Hit the walls, with your fists if you must,
and one day you'll bring the walls down.

Tape sur les murs, à coups de poings s'il le faut,
et un jour les murs s'écrouleront.
