    The Italian title is officially No Time to Die.

    This means none of the Craig films has been translated in Italy.

    And that's the proper way to do it, IMO.

    None of the Brosnan or Craig titles were translated in Norway, whereas everything before that was.

    Doesn’t surprise me. But since Italians are statistically among the most ignorant in UE, I find it quite surprising, yet encouraging.

    No one is going to learn English by keeping the movie titles in their original language, it's the school system that has to be changed and better teachers should be hired. Hopefully some day Italian communists will realise that, but world is going to end due to climate change in three decades anyway, so who cares lol

    Now as someone that doesn't like dubbing of movies (while acknowledging to be decidedly in the minority, at least in Germany) I really don't think that keeping the original title or translating it makes any difference for general language proficiency.

    But I'd be really interested in learning more about the influence of "Italian communists" who play a role in this. Haven't we just had a government basically run by a sort of would-be Mussolini revenant, Sr. Salvini? Didn't the PCI die in the early 90s? Or are you saying that it takes a revival of communists in Italy to re-discover the Holy Grail...but they will be too late anyway?

    PS: Probably not the right forum for this. Couldn't resist. But feel free to PM me.

    So there is a Japan poster.

    middle_d295ef3efe_org.jpg

    Someone else can easily translate whether that's a tag line, a phonetic translation, or the title itself in Kanji.

    Something like 丿 一 歹 亻 厶 卜 る 歹 亻

    Haven't seen one yet so I can predict the Korea title. Obvious, really.

    Estionian title is also "Death Can Wait", SURM PEAB OOTAMA.
  • Just ran another search and it seems that 《无暇赴死》 is being widely used for the Chinese title, which is not bad and more or less also translates directly to "no time to die".

    The Japanese Rōmaji under the English title is actually as follows:

    ノー・タイム・トゥ・ダイ
  • NS_writingsNS_writings Buenos Aires

    Vietnam

    KHÔNG, PHẢI LÚC CHẾT

    Translates as: "No, it must be deadly!"

    The titles with original translations...

    Croatia: ZA SMRT NEMA VREMENA (There's No Time For Death)
    Czech Republic: NENI CAS ZEMRIT (No Reason To Die)
    Estonia: SURM PEAB OOTAMA (Death Can Wait)
    France: MOURIR PEUT ATTENDRE (Dying Can Wait)
    Lituania: MIRTIS PALAUKS (Death Is Ahead)
    Turkey: OLMEK ICIN ZAMAN YOK (No Time To Exist)

    Vietnam

    KHÔNG, PHẢI LÚC CHẾT

    Translates as: "No, it must be deadly!"

    Actually, the logo on the poster doesn't have comma so it's pretty much a literal translation of No Time To Die

    KHÔNG PHẢI = NOT

    LÚC = TIME

    CHẾT = DEATH/DIE
  • 007 - SEM TEMPO PARA MORRER, it will be the title here as we an extension of Portugal

    Good point, I confused that accent with a comma.

    There are more titles that flash on the YouTube reveal. https://youtu.be/IDxMam77onE

    Can someone identify these.

    Those first two look Chinese.

    Yes, @Thunderfinger, those look like two additional Chinese-language official titles. I'm curious for the involved countries and literal translations for each, of course.

    Likely possibilities include Singapore, Macao I guess.

    https://www.todayonline.com/8days/seeanddo/why-does-title-new-james-bond-movie-sound-story-every-stressed-singaporean
    But some Singaporeans seem to think the title is referring to, well, them — us. On his Facebook page, blogger Mr Brown (aka Lee Kin Mun) writes, “The new James Bond movie is called Ai Si Poon Boh Eng. Which is also the story of a Singaporean’s work life.” Come to think of it, No Time to Die is one ‘lah’ away from becoming a Jack Neo movie.

    The third one is Hebrew.

    Ah, Hebrew, now that's pretty obvious but I didn't recognize it with the typeface used, @HildebrandRarity.

    Here are some more to ID for country, beyond the language apparently used. Corrections welcome.

    Nie je cas zomriet [Slovak, There is no time to die]
    Ni čas za smrt [Slovenian, This is no time for death]
    Nije vreme za umirange [Serbian Croatian, This is not the time to die]
    Nu e vreme du murit [Romanian, No time to die]

    Nije vreme za umiranje [Croatian, This is not the time to die]

    It's Serbian, actually, Croatian was posted earlier in the thread.

    Croatia: ZA SMRT NEMA VREMENA (There's No Time For Death)

    This is interesting because it's the same language, yet the translation is different.

    I've made the correction above, @Superintendent. I guess those four can align with Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, and Romania unless someone has more detail.


    Here are the last mentions from the YouTube title reveal, for anyone to translate.

    《无暇赴死》is more or less a direct translation of "no time to die," but would literally translate character-by-character to "without time go die." 无暇 put together is pretty much "no time," and 赴死 can translate more elegantly to "meet death."

    There are more titles that flash on the YouTube reveal. https://youtu.be/IDxMam77onE

    Can someone identify these.

    The titles《生死交戰》and《生死有時》are both rendered in Traditional Chinese characters. The former is the title used in Taiwan, translating to "war between life and death," and the latter is the Hong Kong title, which is somewhat intriguing: "time for life and death."
