Is this song translation correct? » answer
by ClaraLuna, 2017-06-06, 16:46  Spam?  83.26.23...
Hey,
I'm currently running a project that involves translating some part of the song called Gemini Feed by Banks. I'd honestly appreciate any help with this translation given down below (if there are any misinterpretations, wrong uses of particular words, etc.)

SONG IN ENGLISH:
And to think you would get him to the altar
Like he would follow you around like a dog that needs water
But admit it, you just wanted him smaller
If you would've let him grow, you could've kept his love

MY TRANSLATION TO FRENCH:
Et penser que tu aurais pu lui mettre sur l’autel
De façon qu'il te suive comme un chien désireux l’eau,
Mais reconnais que tu as voulu qu'il diminue
Si tu lui avais laissée l'épanouir, Tu aurais pu lui garder son amour

Get sb. to the altar  #872944

This means "to induce somebody to marry you". Is that what "mettre sur l'autel" means?
I see other errors there, but cannot correct them.

Replace the phrase  #872977
by ClaraLuna, 2017-06-26, 20:58  Spam?  83.26.23...
Sorry for the post above, I must've clicked something   Anyway, you are right. I took this phrase a bit literally as to keep its poetry. In the original the personal pronouns are different ('him' is replaced with 'me') that is why I used mettre sur l'autel to convey the act of taking somebody to the wedding altar.

Have you already entered this on at least one other forum? This shows up on a google search, you know.
"Mettre sur l'autel" is used for offerings placed on the altar, not for a marriage. I also, perhaps erroneously, think of Aztec human sacrifices whose blood is going to run over an altar.
"Un chien désireux l’eau" is ungrammatical; it just does not work.
"Tu aurais pu lui garder son amour." oh, crikey: I just don't know where to start trying to explain what is wrong with this.

French Question and Answer Translation from english » answer

I am trying to write this in French:

Dear Mr Petit,

I am currently very worried about my friend's smoking habit and I doubt he will be able to stop. He started smoking at the age of twelve to copy his buddies. At first he smoked one or two cigarettes a day. But now he smokes more than one pack a day. I hope that everything will be alright, but I think I should take advice as a precaution. Unless he can stop, I'm afraid his health may be in danger because as everyone knows, tobacco kills. It is essential that he receives support as tobacco causes infertlity, chronic bronchitis or even serious illness like lung cancer and it kills thousands of people every year. Previously, he has had problems due to too much alcohol consumption, but fortunately he managed to overcome that. if i had not recognised the problems,...

Information: French "etc." with comma » answer
by Paul (AT), 2017-02-19, 13:40  Spam?  
As discussed in German-French, French enumerations that end with "etc." need a comma before that "etc.". See the discussion here: http://defr.forum.dict.cc/forum-questions/detail-864988-Kein-Komma-...
To reflect that, I changed the existing entries yesterday.
