Analogia spiritosa maltrattata da Google

Una delle varie opzioni di ricerca offerte da Google riguarda gli orari di programmazione dei cinema. Il servizio, integrato a volte nei normali risultati di ricerca, non sembra avere un nome proprio (anche se è accessibile direttamente qui).

Oltre a conoscere i film in cartellone nelle varie città e i relativi orari, è possibile accedere a una raccolta di recensioni, recuperate automaticamente da siti specializzati.

Per evitare che l’utente possa ritenere che le recensioni siano “di parte” e sottolineare che la selezione è opera di un software, la pagina originale inglese riporta:

The selection and placement of reviews on this page were determined automatically by a computer program. No movie critics were harmed or even used in the making of this page.

Leggendo il testo, il madrelingua inglese coglie subito la canzonatura di No animals were harmed in the making of this film, che appare solitamente nei titoli di coda di un film per indicare che la sua realizzazione non ha comportato il maltrattamento di animali.

Data l’ovvietà dell’analogia, probabilmente l’autore ha pensato che fosse inutile aggiungere una nota di localizzazione del tipo:

“Attenzione! Gioco di parole. Non tradurre letteralmente!”

A posteriori, penso che abbia fatto male 😉

    Grande testimonianza della maestosità di noi borg-traduttori.
    Scegli anche tu di farti impiantare il modulo MT (Machine Translation).
    Fidati di me: senza noie semantiche si lavora più tranquilli e si guadagna il triplo…

    Professionals will be assimilated. Resistance is futile

  2. g1anluca Says:

    Borg? Ma che sei svedese? 😉

    Battute a parte, quello della professionalità dei traduttori è un argomento serio e delicato. Cercherò di risponderti affrontandolo negli opportuni termini in un futuro articolo.

    Ottimo commento, mia Regina

  3. Regina Borg Says:

    Noi borg siamo in effetti originari della Svezia. Alcuni però hanno antenati finlandesi. Uno di loro stanotte ha corretto la traduzione sul sito. Adesso traspare finalmete quella gioiosa comicità tipica di Raikkonen…

  4. g1anluca Says:

    Grazie della segnalazione, Regina. La nuova traduzione è:

    La selezione e il posizionamento delle recensioni sulla pagina sono stabiliti automaticamente dal software. A nessun critico cinematografico è stato torto un capello durante la creazione di questa pagina.

    In presenza di frasi “spiritose”, penso che il traduttore abbia due possibilità: (1) essere pragmatico, oppure (2) cercare di essere spiritoso.

    La prima opzione si dimostra generalmente migliore e decisamente meno complicata della seconda (la cui efficacia è soggettiva, come dimostra il riferimento al “capello torto” di cui sopra). In ogni caso, ecco delle proposte per entrambi i casi:

    (1) La selezione e il posizionamento delle recensioni sulla pagina sono stabiliti automaticamente da un software e non da critici cinematografici.

    (2) Ogni riferimento e link a recensioni pubblicate su siti specializzati e ai relativi autori è puramente intenzionale e voluto. La realizzazione di questa pagina è opera di un software e non ha comportato l’uso né tantomeno lo sfruttamento di esseri umani.

    Mi sa che Google ha sistemato la traduzione. In questo momento è:

    La selezione e il posizionamento delle recensioni sulla pagina sono stabiliti automaticamente dal software e non da critici cinematografici.

    In pratica è quasi uguale alla tua proposta “pragmatica”.

    Ciao e complimenti per il blog

    Ringrazio Paolo per la segnalazione e… Google per il pragmatismo 😉
