my skills in French language are pretty poor. I have been working on subtitles for a French sci fi and have been stumped by one pivotal section that is less than 5 minutes long. If anyone fancies helping me finish these subtitles, that would be pretty cool. I literally just need a few sentences clarified!
Hacker: You said you'd heard this rumour, I said is it true, you said yes! Bernard: I said yes, it was true that it was a rumour. Hacker: You said you heard it was true! Bernard: No, I said it was true that I heard it!
Hey John! Well, paying translators is well out as I am just putting the subs online for free for fellow sci fi hounds. Translation software from the French subtitles is good for basics, but as soon as you get into metaphors, flirtation, humour, technical terms etc, suddenly the software is spitting out complete gibberish!
