Hello and welcome to LT, new user!
Two of the most important things to keep in mind:

1. Making requests: Request the translation/ transcription (the writing of song lyrics) of a song by going to: Main menu bar → Actions → Request a translation/ Request a transcription.

2. When adding a song, remember to also add the video. Also make sure that you're adding an official one, as those are not usually removed from Youtube, which reduces Editors' and Moderators' workload as they do not have to re-add the videos.

Official videos come in one of the four formats:

Artist Name - Song Name (Topic) - Titles with the word "Topic" after them are videos generated by Youtube.
Artist Name ♪ - Song Name - Artist names with a note (♪) after them are the official channel of the artist.
Artist NameVEVO - Song Name - Artist names with "VEVO" after them also indicate an official channel.
Artist Name - Song Name (Official) - This is the rarest format and usually means this is an independent artist. If the video is indeed an official one, the profile name usually matches with the artist's name.

Sometimes you have to scroll further down to find the correct video.

About me

An Estonian male who has been living in Finland for 15 years. My Finnish proficiency is C2, or native-like proficiency. Of course, I will probably never reach the same level of knowledge of small nuances and stylistic meanings that a Finnish-born speaker has, but I'm working on that all the time.

I originally created my first account on 23rd April 2016 – I consider this my anniversary – called Translationist, which I then renamed to Pääsuke, or 'Swallow'. I left LT, that is, removed my account, on 3rd May, 2018 because I was having a difficult period in life, but re-created my account on the same day. On my old account I had around 360 translations.

I like punk, rock, indie, EDM (mostly chillstep) and all the random songs that I stumble upon and think sound good. Did I mention I like Irish songs? Well, I do.

One of my favourite bands is Haloo Helsinki and one of my favourite artists is Amy Macdonald.

I love Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels.

Personal quote: A mediocre translator thinks they know a language, a good translator knows they cannot ever fully know a language.

Funny quote: "We don't know how to rhyme, but damn we try" (Lady Gaga in "Always Remember Us This Way")

Unlisted languages I have learned (in the order of proficiency): Swedish, German, Chinese

What translating has taught me:

1. There is a word for every thing and phenomenon. If not in your language, then in another language. Hence if you say "there's no word for it", you need to do some digging around on the net (or in the library.)

2. Don't fall prey to negative interference. The phenomenon means that people are prone to using the structure found in their native language when translating things. Be aware of the phenomenon and it will be easier to avoid it. Of course, there is also positive interference, which makes learning some structures easier in your target language.

3. This is pretty much repeating the second point, but be aware that if you say something using an X construction, this is probably not the case in the target language. Use parenthesis in your Google search to find out the exact wording of a phrase. You can search for "a fast horse" and see how many hits you get. When you search for "a quick horse", you will get more hits because this is the correct way of saying it. In other words, the word 'horse' collocates, that is, appears together with the word 'quick'. By the same logic, you see 'fast' with 'car' together. Of course you can use the parenthesis search-method for other kinds of phrases as well.

4. There are some fixed phrases that cannot be changed, they must be written the way you see them: take for example 'salt and pepper', and 'black and white' (or why not even 'mac and cheese'): if you change the word order, they just seem weird. The fixed word order is especially true for idioms: 'it's raining cats and dogs', but not the other way around.
