"Die Braut des Grauens" TAB in German

In case we want to discuss the dubbing ;)

Well, not quite January! But at least not May or June. Let's be thankful, by German standards not that bad.

At the end of March? Are they joking?

Well, that's the ARD, and we pay a licence fee for that "service".

Well and in the UK it was a Christmas Special on New Years Day. ;)

Good that Easter is in March this year!

The translation of the title is "abominable" enough. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png

Re: "Die Braut des Grauens" TAB in German

Definitely. Why didn't they use a correct translation? There is nothing mentioned of horror or terror. It sounds like an bad B-movie.

In German version of the story, the Bride will turn into Nosferatu and fly away.... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

Re: "Die Braut des Grauens" TAB in German

Hehe, just last night hubby and I had the discussion, why they almost never use just the correct translation of a title. We found no explanation.

Re: "Die Braut des Grauens" TAB in German

Tbh, I have to think long and hard to remember the German titles at all. But I think the only one that was different from the original so far was TEH, right?

Oh! Yes, you are right! Didn't have Sherlock in mind while discussing last night.... 

Well, one of our examples was "A little chaos" - "Die Gärtnerin von Versailles"

Re: "Die Braut des Grauens" TAB in German

Well, looking at my DVD collection I have to say that there are a lot of German film titles which are quite similar to the original title. And there also are a lot of titles which weren't translated at all and the original title was used (sometimes a subhead was added and yes, those subheads are mostly dreadful...). I suppose we tend to remember the most absurd translations of original film titles and tend to ignore the fact that there indeed are a lot of felicitous translations. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: "Die Braut des Grauens" TAB in German

Oh, and: I guess we shouldn't complain about the ARD broadcasting TAB in March. It's been over a year now and the ZDF still hasn't managed to broadcast the second season of "Broadchurch"... so it could be a lot worse... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/devious.png

Re: "Die Braut des Grauens" TAB in German

So I just used google translate to see if there was a German word for abominable and it came up with "abscheulich". Is there anything wrong with this word? Why wouldn't they use it? Weird. I suppose English translations of other language titles might be just as bad.

Re: "Die Braut des Grauens" TAB in German

I don't like the phrasing. Maybe it's because I'm no fan of unnecessary article use.
Apart from that, there is nothing that can really upset me about german air dates or dubbing or translations anymore. They have lost me the first time already, I'm not going to watch the german version at all. And it's again LATE in the evening and not 20.15. They just think fans are crazy enough to watch it whatever time they put it out there. But I feel that they don't value Sherlock (all answers I had from ARD to my questions support this theory). I feel just sorry for the people who don't understand the english version, they deserve better.

"Abscheulich" is totally fine. Although "Die abscheuliche Braut" doesn't really convince me, either (there is something wrong with the 'sound', if you know what I mean), the alternative is definitely worse.

Re: "Die Braut des Grauens" TAB in German

I would have chosen one of these three "Die furchtbare/schreckliche/abscheuliche Braut" or the exact translation "abominabel" which is outdated, what a pity.
