About me

Hi. I am from Poland, born in 1982. I graduated from Arabic studies and history. I have PhD in Arabic literature. I studied in Poland, Syria (1 year) and France (half a year). I also worked in Egypt for a bit less than a year. I like prog rock, so I'm mostly going to translate songs by Genesis and King Crimson and the like (as well as other bands) into Polish and Arabic. I could in theory translate a song from French into Arabic, Polish or English, but not the other way round.
If you want a song, a decent song, and not too many of them, translated into Arabic or English or Polish from English or Polish, I'll try to help, if I have free time.
My translations are usually quite literal, but it's on purpouse. My goal is not to create a nice text in some language, but to inform about the meaning of the original text.

مرحبا. بكم. أنا من بولندا وولدت في 1982. تخرجت من كلية الاستشراق (الدراسات العربية والإسلامية) ومن كلية التاريخ. ولي دكتوراة في الأدب العربي أيضا إلا أنني أهتم بالتاريخ اهتماما أكبر. كنت أدرس في بولندا وسوريا (لمدة سنة) وفي فرنسا (لمدة نصف سنة). وكذلك كنت أعمل في مصر لمدة أقل من سنة. أحب بروغ روك فسأترجم أغاني جينيسي وكينغ كريمزون ومثل هاتين الفرقتين (وكذلك الفرق الأخرى* إلى البولندية والعربية وكذلك سأترج بعض الأغاني من البولندية إلى العربية والإنجليزية وأما من العربية أو من اللغات الأخرى فممكن احيانا ولكن اقل بكثير.
لو كان أحد يريد ترجمة أغنية ما من الإنجليزية أو البولندية إلى العربية أو الإنجليزية أو البولندية فسأحاول أن أساعده ما دام لي وقت فارغ لمثل هذه الأشياء.
ترجماتي حرفية تقريبا غالبا ما, ولكن السبب في ذلك أنني أريد أن أخبر القارئ بمعنى الأغنية الأصلية, بينما جمال نص الترجمة شيء ثناوي بالنسبة لي.

Cześć. Jestem z Polski, urodziłem się w 1982 r. Ukończyłem arabistykę i historię, mam doktorat w zakresie arabskiego literaturoznawstwa. Studiowałem w Polsce, Syrii (przez rok) i Francji (przez pół roku). Pracowałem także w Egipcie, krócej, niż rok. Lubię prog rock, więc będę głównie tłumaczyć piosenki Genesis, King Crimson itp., a także innych zespołów, na polski i arabski, niekiedy coś z polskiego na angielski i arabski. Z arabskiego, z francuskiego itp. - rzadziej. Dużo rzadziej.
Jeśli ktoś by potrzebował tłumaczenia piosenki na arabski, angielski lub polski (z polskiego lub angielskiego), to będę starać się pomóc, jeśli tylko będę mieć czas, żądanych piosenek nie będzie wiele i nie będą paskudne.
Moje tłumaczenia są raczej bliższe dosłowności niż dbałości o piękne zwroty, a to dlatego, że są dla mnie jak źródło historyczne. Moim zadaniem jest, w mojej opinii, przede wszystkim poinformować o oryginalnym znaczeniu piosenki, a dopiero w drugiej kolejności zadbać o to, by rezultat się dobrze czytało.
