A mouse is in his mouse hole and he wants to go out to get something to eat, but he‚Äôs afraid there might be a big cat outside, so he puts his ear by the opening and all he hears is ‚ÄúBow Wow‚ÄĚ so he thinks, ‚ÄúWell, there can‚Äôt be a cat out there because there‚Äôs a big old dog‚ÄĚ, so he goes out of his mouse hole and is promptly caught and eaten by a cat, who licks his lips and says ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs good to be bilingual !!‚ÄĚ

On a visit to the United States, Charles de Gaulle was honoured at a banquet in the White House. Seated beside his wife was an official who spoke no French, but who tried to engage her in conversation by asking
‚ÄúMadame de Gaulle, what do you think the most important thing in life is?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúA penis‚ÄĚ, she replied.
Overhearing, her husband said gently ‚ÄúI believe, my dear, that in English it is pronounced ‚Äėappiness.‚ÄĚ

JOKE: Two highway workers were busy working at a construction site when a big car with diplomatic license plates pulled up. ‚ÄúParlez-vous fran√ßais?‚ÄĚ the driver asks them. The two workers just stared. ‚ÄúSprechen Sie Deutsch?‚ÄĚ The two continued to stare at him. ‚ÄúFala portugu√™s?‚ÄĚ Neither worker said anything. ‚ÄúParlate Italiano?‚ÄĚ Still no response. Finally, the man drives off in disgust. One worker turned to the other and said, ‚ÄúGee, maybe we should learn a foreign language‚Ķ‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúWhat for? That guy knew four of them and what good did it do him?‚ÄĚ

Joke: A gentleman wanders around the campus of a college looking for the library. He approaches a student and asked, “Excuse me young man. Would you be good enough and tell me where the library is at?” The student, in a very arrogant and belittling tone, replied, “I sorry, sir, but at this school, we are taught never to end a sentence with a preposition!” The gentleman smiled, and in a very apologetic tone replied, “I beg your pardon. Please allow me to rephrase my question. Would you be good enough to tell me where the library is at, asshole?”

Why is abbreviated such a long word?

Joke: A Spanish speaking bandit held up a bank in Tucson. The sheriff and his deputy chased him. When they captured him, and the sheriff, who couldn‚Äôt speak Spanish, asked him where he‚Äôd hidden the money. ‚ÄúNo s√© nada,‚ÄĚ he replied. The sheriff put a gun to the bandit‚Äôs head and said to his bi-lingual deputy: ‚ÄúTell him that if he doesn‚Äôt tell us where the money is right now, I‚Äôll blow his brains out.‚ÄĚ Upon receiving the translation, the bandit became very animated. ‚Äú¬°Ya me acuerdo! Tienen que caminar tres cuadras hasta ese gran arbol: all√≠ est√° el dinero.‚ÄĚ The sheriff leaned forward. ‚ÄúYeah? Well..?‚ÄĚ The deputy replied: ‚ÄúHe says he wants to die like a man.‚ÄĚ

Let’s get serious…

Julio Cort√°zar Traductor

¬†If I was fond of giving¬†advises, I would advise¬†any young writer who finds writing difficult, to stop writing on his own for some time and to translate; to translate good literature, and some day he’ll realize that he can write with an ease he did not have before ¬∑¬†Julio Cort√°zar, in Conversations with Cort√°zar, by Ernesto Gonz√°lez Bermejo.

A man who knows four languages is worth four men.

Un hombre que sabe cuatro idiomas vale cuatro hombres.

Humor para traductores: “Instrucciones de una sandwichera”, por Berto Romero

Humor para traductores

Vídeo: Instrucciones de una sandwichera

formación para traductores

Berto Romero en Buenafuente

Divertid√≠simo an√°lisis por parte de Berto Romero de una traducci√≥n p√©sima de las instrucciones de una sandwichera. Todav√≠a me estoy riendo y necesitaba compartirlo. Tiene momentos realmente memorables. Los adjetivos se quedan cortos para definirlo:¬†¬†gracioso, ocurrente, guas√≥n, chistoso, salado, cachondo, entretenido, ameno, distra√≠do, placentero… Aunque debo advertir a los fabricantes de sandwicheras y electrodom√©sticos en general que una mala traducci√≥n puede provocar accidentes y eso llevarlos a juicio. En fin, que la broma les puede salir muy cara.

He aqu√≠ una recopilaci√≥n de v√≠deos y gags relacionados con el mundo de la traducci√≥n y la interpretaci√≥n. Desde “Cosas que parecen normales cuando eres traductor” a los grand√≠simos e inimitables Monty Python, pasando por Vaya Semanita y un coreano con malas pulgas.


Es el v√≠deo sobre traducci√≥n con m√°s visitas en internet. ¬°Un v√≠deo buen√≠simo y con un gran sentido del humor! Si a√ļn no lo conoces, te lo recomiendo. Me he re√≠do mucho. Cualquier traductor se ver√° reflejado de inmediato. La autora es Paula Garc√≠a. Aun as√≠, amamos este trabajo ūüôā

Kim Jong-Un y su int√©rprete… Ups… Mejor no digo nada…

Los de Vaya semanita, programa de humor de Euskal Telebista, tambi√©n tienen sus gags de humor para traductores e int√©rpretes…

¬ŅY qu√© decir de este gran cl√°sico del humor? Monty Python con su c√©lebre sucia gu√≠a h√ļngara. Un gag con final apote√≥sico…
