We’re fortunate enough to have two different translations from two of our members here,, K Białek and K Kuzmin. Thank you both very much. You both put a great deal of work into this. And now we have two different perspectives on what was being said and screamed in that car.
I was working on adding their translations to the actual video so we could have English subtitles. But my hard drive died before I finished. Now that work is gone 🙂
Mr Białek translated using the video I did, which featured the entire Russian clip. So for anyone who wants to follow along, you’ll need to use my clip below to match time line in Column A.
***There was a great deal more information in Mr Białek’s translation, done on a spreadsheet, but it simply wouldn’t fit. So I had to hide a few columns.
|My vid timeline||My translation||Notices|
|01:07:00||M:||Closer than five, be quiet!||There is definitely five, but are they talking meters or trees, or any other ancient measure – I can not tell.|
|B:||There is… / Look there…|
|01:09:00||M:||Closer than five and will go right on us / will roll out (of bushes? though bushes?)||although I don’t recognize the word, this sounds like ‘to roll out’|
|01:11:00||B:||There! / Look! 3 times|
|01:11:00||M:||We will take the shot and put it on YouTube…|
|B:||Look, what (is it)|
|01:15:00||M:||(‘Blimm’ – sounds similiar to ‘Blyat’ – where the second one is really harsh and M may restrict using the word next to his son, the B) Shit, he is closing (here)!||‘Blimm’ seems like ‘Blyat’ which is more harsh and M probably didn’t want to use it in presence of B|
|01:18:00||B:||I am scared… there, look!||This is almost one sentence|
|01:20:00||B:||He (…) is shaking (his head?)||There are definetely ‘shevelit’sya’=shaking and ‘lob’=‘with his head’ or ‘head’ but I think it is just more like „Look, there is his head visible between branches”|
|01:23:00||M:||I am not (seeing anything?) See, see, see, he is running / he is speeding up!|
|01:25:00||M:||??? (here-here, closer-closer, just-just ?)|
|01:26:00||B:||Hurry, speedy, speedy, it is shooting…||The google translation is horribly wrong here, as well in some other places too. „Pre-” does mean old, ancient and is part of Polish word Praprzodkowie=Ancestors, but there is word Prędko=Fast, also in Polish, and there it is rather this meaning. BTW the language seems somewhat similar to Polish, espacially regarding accent and intonation. This wouldn’t be Siberia than…|
|01:30:00||M:||Oh, he is running / he has run away|
|01:32:00||M:||I had shot (him – this (event))!|
|B:||(…) (I am ?) afraid, let’s go!|
|01:34:00||M:||I had shot!!!|
|B:||There are some parts which I can not understand due to careless pronauciation, lack of my contact with common speech, and because it is not my nativie lang.|
|01:42:00||M:||(I can see / look) how he is swinging his arms||The B says rather „Vodno” than „Vidno” – but this may be regional as other. Vodno=Water-like Vidno=Clear/You can see|
|01:45:00||B:||He is 2 meters high.||Metric system. 2m = 79 in = 6 9/16 ft approx by the small boy.|
BUT it is a late summer / outumn forest, there is probably a rich cover on the ground – some moss and stuff. He probably estimates, what is visible. On the other hand we are talking of like 15 cm = 5 in – not more…
|01:51:00||B:||I am scared.|
|01:52:00||M:||We should put this movie on MTV||(this may be a local or Russian TV news as well, I don’t think M is talking about MTV…)|
|01:56:00||M:||Outstanding /extraordinary / special meeting / place|
|01:59:00||M:||Lets follow him! / We are going after him!|
|what is this brown thing moving in the center of screen?|
|Generally they are not as scary, as the woman-hunter i.e.|
And below is the translation done by Mr. Kuzmin. His translation follows the original video. Again, thank you both very much. It’s great to know we have you here because a good many of the BF videos that turn up are from Russia.
00:00:03,560 –> 00:00:06,160
Are you filming?
Yes I am.
00:00:08,120 –> 00:00:10,820
Where is he? There he’s standing.
00:00:10,820 –> 00:00:12,980
Go on filming!
00:00:12,980 –> 00:00:14,380
Just from here.
00:00:16,580 –> 00:00:18,740
Fuck. I lost him.
00:00:18,740 –> 00:00:20,740
00:00:21,440 –> 00:00:24,740
I can’t see him. I can’t see him!
00:00:25,140 –> 00:00:27,380
He stopped. He knows we’re filming.
00:00:27,380 –> 00:00:29,380
00:00:29,900 –> 00:00:32,300
He’s going this way!
00:00:32,300 –> 00:00:34,980
Don’t get close!
00:00:41,540 –> 00:00:44,140
00:00:46,320 –> 00:00:49,980
Wait, hold on! Wait, stop! Film, film, film!
I am filming!
00:00:49,980 –> 00:00:54,600
Can you zoom in? Zoom in!
00:00:57,120 –> 00:01:01,320
I’ll get closer.
00:01:04,420 –> 00:01:08,460
I think it was him yesterday?
Yes it’s him.
00:01:09,840 –> 00:01:13,880
He ran in a strange way, on all fours.
00:01:13,900 –> 00:01:18,380
He walks, he runs. He stopped.
00:01:24,860 –> 00:01:29,000
What the fuck?
What, you can’t drive?
00:01:33,480 –> 00:01:37,300
00:01:39,020 –> 00:01:42,960
Close the door, don’t go out!
00:01:43,000 –> 00:01:44,960
I’ll be quick.
00:01:46,820 –> 00:01:49,700
00:01:50,140 –> 00:01:52,240
Please close! [the door]
00:01:52,300 –> 00:01:56,300
He’s running. Close the window!
00:01:56,720 –> 00:02:01,100
He’s coming. Lesha!
00:02:01,100 –> 00:02:04,980
He’s running. Lesha!
00:02:07,880 –> 00:02:13,620
Angelina, open the window so the picture is cleaner.
He can’t catch up with us anyway, he’s slower than us.
00:02:13,620 –> 00:02:17,620
Keep filming like this.
00:02:18,660 –> 00:02:20,800
00:02:24,700 –> 00:02:30,520
I’m filming, just please keep driving.
00:02:45,100 –> 00:02:50,120
He fell. He fell! Drive, Lesha.
00:02:50,120 –> 00:02:54,380
00:02:54,380 –> 00:02:56,380
Let’s go home. Let’s go home.
