Using this translation turn the pages a bit odd - sorry




Lost in translation

Sometime it can be hard work translating some text. Sometime it also can be fun reading both the original and the translated text, as in this sample.

Let us have a look at the daily strip of 22 of Nov 1965. In the first panel of the original strip we can read:

….., she is unharmed -

The text was translated into French (from Italian) for Journal de Mickey issue 1494, and in the similar panel we can read:

…., elle est… desarmée !

The French word Desarmée is unarmed. So in the original text Narda was unharmed, in France she was unarmed!
