Translation Challenge #9… (swa-eng)

2014-05-17-21-57-11--1638277407

Jana nimebahatika kutazama filamu moja yenye asili ya Kichina iitwayo “Under The Hawthorn Tree”. Filamu hii inatokana na kitabu kimoja maarufu sana chenye jina hilo hilo ambacho kimeuza nakala zaidi ya milioni moja nchini China tu.

Kwa ufupi hadithi inaelezea mapenzi kati ya msichana mdogo maskini na mvulana aliyetoka kwenye familia yenye uwezo wakati wa miaka ya sabini nchi ya China ilipokuwa kwenye kipindi kigumu cha mapinduzi.

Kwa kweli filamu hii ni nzuri mno na waigizaji wakuu walifanya kazi ya kusifika kabisa. Kama hujaitazama au kusoma kitabu cha hadithi hii ningekushauri ufanye hivyo na nakuahidi utakuja kunishukuru. Ila nikupe tahadhari moja tu-hakikisha una kleenex mkononi kwa sababu ninakuhakikishia utaihitaj!

    Yesterday I was lucky enough to watch a Chinese movie/ a movie with Chinese roots that is called “Chini ya mti wa Hawthorn”. This movie is based on a very famous book with the same name (?) which has sold more than 1 million copies in (the land of) China alone.
    In a nutshell the story tells the love between a small poor girl and a boy that stems from a family with (financial) power in the 70’s when China was having a difficult time of turmoil.
    This movie is really beautiful and the main actors did an absolutely praiseworthy work. If you haven’t seen it or haven’t read the book (of this story) I would advise you to do so and I promise you, you will come (back) and thank me. But I should give you just one warning – make sure you have a kitambaa cha kusafisha pua at hand because I assure you, you’ll need it!

    asante sana kwa makini yako!

    Nico, good job and thanks for taking up the challenge! Nice one translating what I had in English though for the purpose of originality they are best left as they are, like kleenex is a brand so when you call it something that it isn’t….careful you could get sued 😉
