Today’s translation is a Christmas themed AKB48 song. It is translated more literally rather than poetically for understanding, and some of the subjects remain vague. I hope it still manages to be readable! Merry Christmas for those who celebrate it.
あなたとクリスマスイブ (Anata to Kurisumasuibu) translated as “Christmas Eve and You”
Yesterday’s post translated the song A Whole New World from Japanese to literal English. Today I wanted to post my translated Japanese version next to the official English lyrics. We can then compare how the Japanese translated a song that was originally written in English!
I decided to do something slightly different. This time I’ll translate the Japanese version of an originally English song just to see the differences in meaning. This is the literal translation, but I hope to have the comparison with the original English lyrics up tomorrow!
