Join DW's staff for Dothraki translations
« on: September 17, 2014, 04:53:18 am »
Some of you may already have noticed that DW has started an online news service for Westeros (http://dw.de/game-of-thrones)
With that service comes an interactive translation page, where they try to translate some of their news items into Dothraki and Valyrian. You know...to reach the local population.  ;)

Anyway, I thought you guys would like to join the effort. You are the preeminent experts after all.

Just head over to the translation page (http://www.dw.de/were-looking-for-experts-in-valyrian-and-dothraki/a-17915635) and post your suggestion for the translation of a word or a phrase as a comment.

The comment section was automatically closed after two weeks but I opened it again.  So type away! And welcome on board.

(On second thought: 'Welcome on board' seems too maritime an expression for the Dothraki. It reeks of the poison waters...So let's say 'Welcome to the Khalasaar' instead.)

More appropriate might be 'Join or I'll kill you' ;)
Don't tell Khal Drogo I am here ;)

I did some translations at this site. I hopefully got it somewhat correct.
