Translating the Next Mihmiverse Film

dj_teaseThe translation of the next film by Christopher Mihm is in progress.  I’ve finished translating my assigned scenes and I must say, if the last film was full of “Ne, ne, neeeee!” then this one is full of “Mi ne scias.

This will be the 5th film that is to have a voice dub and subtitles in Esperanto and I’ve enjoyed helping with each one. To me, doing these translations is akin to doing a crossword puzzle.  We are constrained with keeping the basic meaning of the lines and limiting the length according to the syllables in the English version.  Otherwise the ‘Godzilla Effect’ occurs where the voice and lips do not match up at all.

One of the new challenges for this film is the large number of children’s parts for which young Esperanto speakers, or Esperantists with young voices will be needed.  I’ve even volunteered my daughter for small role. (Actually, I asked her and she agreed.)

So get ready world! Another Esperanto dubbed film is on the way!
