Translation Challenge #4…(eng-swa)

“Last night I had a strange dream. In it, I was being strangled by an unknown person. I tried to scream and ask for help but no sound would come out. As I started losing consciousness , I faintly heard mom’s voice calling me. I tried hard to respond but couldn’t………..then I suddenly woke up!”

ndoto, kupiga mayowe, kupoteza fahamu, mtu asiyejulikana, kuomba msaada

    Jana usiku nilikuwa na ndoto ya ajabu. Nilikuwa nikinyongwa na mtu asiyejulikana. Nikajaribu kupiga mayowe na kuomba msaada lakini sauti yo yote haikutoka. Mara nikaanza kupoteza fahamu nikasikia sauti ya mamangu akiniita kwa utaratibu. Nikajaribu sana kujibu lakini sikuweza… kisha nikaamka kwa ghafula!

    How did I do? Asante sana!

    Hey,
    Instead of “nilikuwa na ndoto” you should say “niliota ndoto,” as “nilikuwa na ndoto” is a direct translation from English. To be strangled is also not “kunyongwa” but “kukabwa.” Otherwise all clear 😉
    Good stuff!
