Wie kann man das am besten wörtlich übersetzen?

6 Antworten

Warum willst du eine wörtliche Übersetzung? Eine echte Übersetzung kann niemals wörtlich sein, denn dann ist das Geschriebene nicht mehr verständlich. Im übrigen ist der Spruch ein Zitat von Samuel Johnson und wird gerne dazu verwendet, um den Gebrauch und die Wirkung von Rauschmitteln zu beschreiben:

"Der Rausch wurde als eine Einweihung und Einweisung ins Erwachsenwerden – insbesondere ins „Mannwerden“ betrachtet. Die männliche, latent aggressive Rauschaffinität lässt sich teils noch heute auf ein Zitat von Samuel Johnson reduzieren: „He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.“" Quelle: http://anouphagos.wordpress.com/statisches/artikel/zu-ernst-jungers-%E2%80%9Eannaherungen-%E2%80%93-drogen-und-rausch%E2%80%9C/

Die offizielle Übersetzung lautet wie folgt: "Der, so [er] sich zum Tier macht, befreit sich von dem Leid, ein Mensch zu sein." Dieser Ausspruch wurde auch in anderen literarischen Werken aufgenommen, u. a. Hunter S. Thompsons Frühwerk "The Rum Diary".

"Wer ein Tier aus sich macht, wird den Schmerz los, ein Mensch zu sein."
Geht aber bestimmt noch besser. P.S.: "Wer ein Tier aus sich macht, befreit sich von dem Schmerz, ein Mensch zu sein"

in meinem hörbuch von fear and loathing ind las vegas heißt es: "der, so sich zum tier macht, befreit sich von dem leid ein mensch zu sein" —DR. JOHNSON

Terms of Trade - Nachteile bzw. Kritik?


kann mir jemand erklären, inwiefern die Terms of Trade zu Ungleichheit beitragen? Was genau sind die Nachteile der TOT?

Ich habe öfter gehört, dass die TOT die Unterentwicklung in Entwicklungsländern begünstigen und eher für die Industrieländer vorteilhaft sind, was logisch ist. Kann mir das aber jemand genauer erläutern? Im Internet findet man leider komischerweise kaum etwas zu den Nachteilen der TOT.

Ist diese Summary gelungen?

Als Vorbereitung auf meine nächste Englischarbeit habe ich eine Summary zu diesem Text geschrieben. Könnt ihr mir ein Feedback geben?

Hier ist die summary:

The Text “Drop Dead, Warlock!” By David Sedaris is about his life as a young gay teenager and the more or less bad time he had until it improved a lot.

In the beginning he tells about his experiences as a gay teenager in North Carolina. He is upset about what it means to call someone a queer. In his youth being gay was like something the most people didn’t even know. You couldn’t find any information about homosexuality. So as a consequence he believes that he is the only homosexual in the world. He explains that being gay was like being an animal that was born in captivity. You know nothing about the others and whether you are alone or not. Furthermore he mentions that it has to be much easier for a gay Noe, because he knows he is not alone. In his opinion anyone is getting harassed for something, but being gay is sometimes a reason why you are taunted. So his main message is that anyone is pained by something, but it gets better when you grow up. He would have not believed that anything he wished when he was younger has fulfilled.

Charakterisierung Englisch Just Along for a Ride Fehle?!

Wäre lieb, wenn jmnd. drüberschauen könnte und evtl. Fehler findet, Verbesserungsvorschläge...

The story “Just Along for the Ride” by Dennis Kurumada in 1972 is about young boys who dirve in a car and try to flatten a kid. This plan gets out of control and doesn’t turn out well. The main character of the story ”Just Along for a Ride” is a male student, about 16 years old. The protagonist uses everyday language (l.15) He describes himself being “pretty dull” (l.3), because he drives around with his friend who just got his license. In fact he is “cold, damp and bored” (l. 5) what the narrator also tells us directly (the main character is also the narrator. That implies that they aren’t very creative, otherwise he wouldn’t be bored. As the other boys want to flatten a kid he doesn’t agree. On the one hand he has feelings of guilty, he’s a thoughtful person. On the other hand he is scared, which means that he is a careful person and thinks about the consequences. Because of this characteristic he is gibed by his friends. They think that he is a killjoy and not humorous. For example: “You worry too much. Whenever we wanna have some fun, you always chicken out.” (l.15). He isn’t very assertive or strong-minded in the beginning. His friends retune him and oppress him. For instance: “We drive up slow, then swing open the door real fast, and knock the guy on his can,” says Phil (l.10). The protagonist is against it. “You guys are nuts,” he says and “What if they call the cops?” (l.15) Although they still do it. Or in line 34 he wants the driver to stop the car but the driver convinces him that it is necessary to drive on. In the end he feels guilty even if it hasn’t been his idea and he tried to stop the others. That’s why he is really responsible-minded but he also doesn’t want his friends to get in trouble, he’s kind of loyal. He shows his feelings what makes him sensible (l.30). Finally he gets strong-minded and assertive. At night his friends visit him and propose him to forget about the crime. He gets mad and visits the victim, what nobody expects. All in all I think the protagonist is a adorable person. I can identify with the character because it’s realistic how he reacts. Besides I liked it a lot that he did not do what his friends want him to do. He goes his own was and that’s brave. In opposite to the protagonist there’s Phil also a co-driver. He is male, a student and about 16 years old. The first time he says something he cuts off the protagonist (l.8). That’s impolite and not respectful. On top of that he is vicious, careless and sneaky because he has the idea “to drive up to somebody….some kid….and flatten him.”(l.8) He is language is colloquial, e. g. “We wanna have some fun…“ (l.16) and firstly he doesn’t speak fluently (l.8) It seems that he tries to be funny and cool, so the others respect him. In conclusion I think Phil isn’t very authentic and very likeable. I have the impression that he is a daredevil and a false friend.
