Joke:

Two translators on a ship are talking.
“Can you swim?” asks one.
“No” says the other, “but I can shout for help in nine languages.”

Joke:

A mouse is in his mouse hole and he wants to go out to get something to eat, but he’s afraid there might be a big cat outside, so he puts his ear by the opening and all he hears is “Bow Wow” so he thinks, “Well, there can’t be a cat out there because there’s a big old dog”, so he goes out of his mouse hole and is promptly caught and eaten by a cat, who licks his lips and says “It’s good to be bilingual !!”

The importance of pronunciation 🙂

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
“Madame de Gaulle, what do you think the most important thing in life is?”
“A penis”, she replied.
Overhearing, her husband said gently “I believe, my dear, that in English it is pronounced ‘appiness.”

JOKE: Two highway workers were busy working at a construction site when a big car with diplomatic license plates pulled up. “Parlez-vous français?” the driver asks them. The two workers just stared. “Sprechen Sie Deutsch?” The two continued to stare at him. “Fala português?” Neither worker said anything. “Parlate Italiano?” Still no response. Finally, the man drives off in disgust. One worker turned to the other and said, “Gee, maybe we should learn a foreign language…” “What for? That guy knew four of them and what good did it do him?”

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’t speak Spanish, asked him where he’d hidden the money. “No sé nada,” he replied. The sheriff put a gun to the bandit’s head and said to his bi-lingual deputy: “Tell him that if he doesn’t tell us where the money is right now, I’ll blow his brains out.” Upon receiving the translation, the bandit became very animated. “¡Ya me acuerdo! Tienen que caminar tres cuadras hasta ese gran arbol: allí está el dinero.” The sheriff leaned forward. “Yeah? Well..?” The deputy replied: “He says he wants to die like a man.”

Let’s get serious…

Julio Cortázar 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 Cortázar, in Conversations with Cortázar, by Ernesto González 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

Divertidísimo análisis por parte de Berto Romero de una traducción pésima de las instrucciones de una sandwichera. Todavía me estoy riendo y necesitaba compartirlo. Tiene momentos realmente memorables. Los adjetivos se quedan cortos para definirlo:  gracioso, ocurrente, guasón, chistoso, salado, cachondo, entretenido, ameno, distraído, placentero… Aunque debo advertir a los fabricantes de sandwicheras y electrodomésticos en general que una mala traducción puede provocar accidentes y eso llevarlos a juicio. En fin, que la broma les puede salir muy cara.

Cosas que parecen normales cuando eres traductor

Vídeos de humor para Traductores e Intérpretes

He aquí una recopilación de vídeos y gags relacionados con el mundo de la traducción y la interpretación. Desde “Cosas que parecen normales cuando eres traductor” a los grandísimos e inimitables Monty Python, pasando por Vaya Semanita y un coreano con malas pulgas.

***

Es el vídeo sobre traducción con más visitas en internet. ¡Un vídeo buenísimo y con un gran sentido del humor! Si aún no lo conoces, te lo recomiendo. Me he reído mucho. Cualquier traductor se verá reflejado de inmediato. La autora es Paula García. Aun así, amamos este trabajo 🙂

Kim Jong-Un y su intérprete… Ups… Mejor no digo nada…

Los de Vaya semanita, programa de humor de Euskal Telebista, también tienen sus gags de humor para traductores e intérpretes…

¿Y qué decir de este gran clásico del humor? Monty Python con su célebre sucia guía húngara. Un gag con final apoteósico…

“This book is la hostia”, New Times York

“¡Que quede claro que yo no soy el autor!”, Noam Chomsky

“Un libro de lectura obligada, literalmente. ¡Qué pesados los Nohay Chomskies, largaos ya del bar de una vez y dejad de leer en voz alta!”, Facundo Pérez, dueño de El Paquirri

“Misa no entender tusa”, Jar Jar Binks
