|I am quite a fan of songs translated into different languages. I have often heard people complain about the supposed poor quality of song translation (or translation generally) in films. This, amongst other things, encouraged me to give it a try myself. On the bottom of this page you will find some songs which I have spent my spare time translating into German. I’m telling you, it’s not easy. Having gained a little experience at it, I can now tell how difficult it is, and I personally believe that the professional translators are doing an absolutely terrific job at it. For those languages I understand, I marvel at how they get the same overall meaning into lyrics which still fit the melody and rhyme scheme perfectly.|
This list isn’t yet complete; I actually have more lyrics than just these, I just have to format them properly. Nevertheless, I would be more than happy for any contribution or correction of any mistakes. If you happen to have any lyrics of any songs which exists in several languages, or you have translated a song yourself, please let me know and I’ll put it up.
I am a great fan of Walt Disney’s The Lion King and Mulan, and I quite like Disney in general. I do not consider myself silly or childish for this though. Most of their films are designed in a way to suit people of all ages. Also, most film music unfortunately doesn’t get translated; Walt Disney is quite an exception to the rule.
