New York City meets Munich

Lost in Translation

August 22nd, 2011 · No Comments · Funny, Germany, Learning German, Movies

I’m progressing through my German lessons with Rosetta Stone slowly but steadily. When we’re out and about here in Munich, I always have my eyes and ears open to see how much I can understand.

It’s clear I have a long way to go. When we were in the video store, I saw the DVD for “Made in Dagenham” for sale. This charming little drama about a real labor protest in 1968 against sexual discrimination in wages at a Ford plant in the English city of Dagenham was for sale. But the title has been translated for the German market.

We Want Sex!

I’m pretty sure that’s not how I would have translated it. But I have a lot more lessons to do.
