Changing blog contents: Lyrics Translation!

Ok Ok, I am really bad with blogs!

I am not really a person with a good perseverance and this goes against keeping a blog active πŸ˜€

But there is something I like to do and I already do for another site: translate japanese lyrics.
I think it’s a fun and interesting way to practice the understanding of the Language and an even better way to learn new words.

Of course, I am not so good to claim that my translations are perfect, but I am confident enough to say that I can get the global meaning of the songs.

Whoever knows japanese a bit knows that grammar in song lyrics is far from being “perfect”. Japanese itself is aΒ  vague Language that leave space for interpretations and this aspect is ten times more accentuated in songs. Sometimes I ask for help to my japanese friends and even them have to give me two versions: literal meaning and “what the singer probably means”. That makes translations even more difficult than translating normal sentences, but less boring πŸ˜€ That’s why I do it instead of spending time on books πŸ˜€

So well, my traslation won’t be perfect, but I hope good enough πŸ™‚

I dunno if I will post any other “lessons” as the ones I already posted, but I may write particular blog entries about specific (and more advanced) topics.
Cause you can find basic japanese lessons all around the web so I dunno if there is someone who even read those easy lessons.. but there are advanced topic that are really difficult to find on internet.. so I hope that such blog entries will be more useful πŸ™‚

I will post soon a lyrics translation so that this new beginning will get started now that I am really willing to do it πŸ˜€
