This thread was brought to be by a short conversation in "I've never noticed this before". The goal of this is to translate non-English parts of the Bond films that aren't subtitled into English. This can be any language. French, German, Albanian, Dutch, Korean, Swedish, Elvish, or Klingon, it doesn't matter. If you can translate any lines, please do.

Thanks.

Concedi che mentre il corpo di Marco Sciarra viene qui sepolto, l'anima, libera da vincoli di peccato, intessi a lieti di gioia perenne insieme ai tuoi santi e trovi la quiete del riposo. Nel momento del tuo giudizio, possa risorgere con i beati. Per Cristo nostro Signore, amen."

"[...] sign of hope in the resurrection. O God, in your mercy let the souls of the faithful find rest. Bless this tomb and entrust it to the custody of your holy angel. Concede that while the body of Marco Sciarra is buried here, the soul, free from the bonds of sin, weaves with perennial joy together with your saints and finds the quiet of the rest. To resurrect with the blessed, at the moment of your judgement. For Christ our Lord, amen."

    Two more German things that come to my mind immediately:

    In TND, when Bond hands the BMW over to the valet at Carver's headquarter and the computer voice starts bossing around, he tells the valet "Lass dich nicht verarschen!" That's rather colloquial, or even vulgar (the verb contains "Arsch" meaning arse), and means most closely "Don't let [her/it] f..k with you" or "...take the piss out of you".

    In OP, the loudspeaker voice at the "Karl-Marx-Stadt" railway station repeatedly announces, in a locally fitting Saxonian accent, "Der Sonderzug nach Feldstadt fährt in wenigen Minuten ab." This means, "The special train to Feldstadt will depart in a few minutes."

    Another thing that also belongs here, although discussed before, is the scene at the Nambutu (or what the name was) embassy in CR, after the shootout. Many people think that the embassy official, after his security guards had cornered Bond, tells 007 "Listen to me" (for whatever reason). What he really says is the French "Laissez tomber!" ("Drop it!", or literally "let it fall", referring to Bond's gun).

    *mind blown*
    That scene always felt so weird to me, the way he says "listen to me" and then doesn't follow up with anything...
    I don't speak any french so i never made that connection.
    Thanks for clarifying that @j_w_pepper

    Great idea for a thread.

    Quoting from another thread:

    mattjoes wrote: »
    - What does the man supervising the ski jump say in Italian in FYEO?

    He says "Libero", which literally means "Free", as in the slide is free and the next skier may proceed.

    Then he asks Bond "E tu dove hai il casco?", which means "Where's your helmet?" and Bond answers "Guarda!" which means "Look!"

    He finally calls to his radio: "Guardie, c'è un pazzo qua!", which means "Guards, there's a fool in here!"

    ---

    A couple of translations of my own:

    - In FYEO, Bond says "por favor, empujen!" ("please, push!") when the villagers help him get the Citroën moving.

    - In Spectre, when Moreau asks Sr. Guerra if he'll make the journey to Altaussee, Guerra replies: "Of course. My loyalty to this organization is absolute. I'll protect it until my last breath. There will be no more amateurs. We won't see any more displays of weakness."

    I'd be interested to know what Renard says in the bunker shootout in TWINE.

    That's nice to know. I've always heard that line as "listen to me" but I knew he wasn't saying that.

    I don't know where they are, ah yes in CR (67) the french child song : "Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques, dormez-vous ? Dormez-vous ? Sonnez les matines, sonnez les matines, ding ding dong" -> "Brother Jacques, Brother Jacques, do you sleeping? Do you sleeping? Ring the matins, ring the matins, ding ding dong"

    I found the Turkish bit and put it in the list.

    Another new one here:

    Bond at the casino in GE (French):
    - Bonsoir, Monsieur Bond. Très heureux de vous revoir.
    - Bonsoir, Pierre. Ça va bien?
    - Très bien. Et vous?

    - Good evening, Mr. Bond. Very happy to see you again.
    - Good evening, Pierre. Are you doing well?
    -Very well, and you?

    I tried to verify that, but my German-issue Blu-ray (with German, English and Turkish subtitles) doesn't show anything in that regard for the occasion, no matter which subtitle version. But trying to figure this out, I heard the guy speaking so often that I am absolutely, positively and definitely sure he really says "Laissez tomber" and nothing else.

    In FYEO, Bond raises his glass and says what sounds like "yassou". The original Greek would be γεια σου, a phrase meaning "to your health" and being sort of universally applicable as a greeting or goodbye (much like the Italian ciao), when someone sneezes (cf. German "Gesundheit"), or as in this case the equivalent of "cheers".
