This is quite a big passage to translate » answer
by Kirkjuvar (NO/GB), Last modified: 2014-02-15, 23:37  like dislike  Spam?  
I need this translated for my rugby teams version of the haka.

"Lo there, do we see our fathers,
Lo there, do we see our mothers, our sisters and brothers,
Lo there, do we see the line of our people, back to the beginning,
Lo, they do call to us, they bid us to take our place among them,
In the halls of Valhalla where the brave may live forever.

Through the north sea we have come,
To claim out rightful land.
To save our souls, by destroying the enemy.
The Gods have spoken,
The Gods have spoken,
For our ancestors in Valhalla we battle.
Live or die today, we do so in honour.

Help with poem translation » answer
by barefootfiona (DE/GB), 2013-02-03, 15:00  like dislike  Spam?  
Hi everyone,

The first time I was in Iceland, I picked up this little poetry book (Hundrað beztu ljóð á íslenzka tungu - no publish date given as the cover page is torn out, but I would guess 60s or earlier). I've been trying to translate one of the poems (Svanasöngur á heiði by Steingrímur Thorsteinsson).

However, the combination of the poem dating back to the 19th century, and the orthography also being somewhat antiquated has made it very hard for me to render it both accurately and poetically, so while I've used poetic license in some parts, in other parts I've had to pretty much guess at the meaning of words! Any help would be appreciated:

I've only included one sentence here as per the forum rules, but there are two further stanzas and I would love it if someone could proof-read them too.

Making a single compound word for the phrase "the Old Language". » answer
anonymous, 2012-02-08, 11:02  like dislike  Spam?  174.252.135....
I need to make a single compound word in the Icelandic tongue, that means "the Old Language".  One word.  It needs to sound appropriate to the Icelandic tongue and not be completely uncomfortable to say.  I once had to find a compound for Fire Snake and found Eldslanga was a superb solution.
by MrHorse (IS), 2012-03-31, 16:17  like dislike  Spam?  
The word for "the old language" is "fornmál". It means archaic language and is used in referral to old Norse.
Translation of a short and extremely beautiful song » answer
by FlettaQuestion, 2011-12-19, 05:29  like dislike  Spam?  24.10.241...
Hi all -- if anyone could translate this song into English for me I'd really really appreciate it. It's entirely exquisite (listen if you'd like), absolutely my favorite song, and I really can't say how much it would mean to me to know the lyrics of that cutting and sliding and building melody. It's "Flétta" by Antony and the Johnsons, Bjork singing along.

skafa með skrúfu
ég kem Þegar hann
ég fletti rólega bakvið lendarnar hvernig
ég skafa öldurnar eins og sund fram á við
leyfðu mér að fletta ofan af mér
allt sem mig langar í er ad mýkjast öll að innan endalaust
loksins finn ég árangur dettur af Þessi farangur
hrynur af lag eftir lag og ég storma upp

Thank you so so so much in advance!
