    Don wuap, is there a standard for spanish-to-english subtitle translation? I only ask because I watched "[nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1VBawGN85Y"]The Two Escobars (full) - YouTube[/nomedia]" this weekend, and was somewhat annoyed at what I would consider mistranslations in the subtitles. I can't remember many specifics, but it seemed like the subtitles often shortened what were otherwise perfectly translatable sentences. It usually wasn't a problem, but I felt like a few times the shortened translation changed the sentido of what was being said.

    One I specifically remember was a player saying that, after a certain series of events, a player told his coach "no quiero seguir jugando" and the translation was "I told my coach, I can't play anymore". To me, saying "I don't want to continue playing" or "I don't want to play anymore" is completely different than saying "I can't play play anymore." That's just one example, but there are hundreds of those throughout the documentary.

    I understand that word-for-word translation isn't helpful with a lot of phrases, but there seemed to be a lot of license taken with the translation. Is this normal?

    For the record, the documentary is awesome. Completely fascinating. I was in Jr. High when the World Cup hit the U.S., and I vaguely remember hearing details about Andres Escobar's murder. However, not knowing the back story, I always had the impression that it was rabid fans who killed him out of anger.

    No, there is not at all. And, it's maddening. For example, the American version of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown translates "¡Qué bárbaro! as "What the fuck?" A gross exaggeration of unintended vulgarity in the original. I once watched Shrek dubbed into Spanish with the Spanish subtitles on and they didn't even match. It's a hot mess and there are often Mexican, Spanish, and Argentine subtitling companies that will do a version for their national audience, and then the Region 1 companies buy the cheapest one for inclusion on their discs.

    Ok, guatemaltecos, I've got a guy asking me to go over some lines in a novel he's writing. It's science fiction about fire fighters in Guatemala at a Mayan site. He wants a part to be called the Devil's Hole.

    In Costa Rica we'd say "El Hueco del Diablo."

    But, would Guatemalans say that, or would they use "hoyo" or "agujero?"

    Definitely "hoyo."

    Un alumno mío, queriendo decir, "Pido una pizza" dijo, "Yo pedo una pizza."

    Hice una encuesta a 50 chavas, ¿Que shampoo usa?, y recibí la misma respuesta: “Sal de mi baño o llamo a la policia... pervertido”

    This is an "I'm A Mormon" video done entirely in Spanish. I hadn't seen one of those until today:

    Just trying to keep my streak alive. Besides, I wouldn't doubt it, my spanish is pretty rusty.

    I did think that the translation was not nearly as forceful as the english version, to the point I thought it was humorous.
