Rack your brains and help!/ 24
Message de here4u posté le 15-06-2018 à 16:25:27 (S | E | F)
Hello, dear Friends and all workers,

Voici votre numéro suivant. J’espère qu’il vous apprendra un peu, tout en vous donnant du plaisir et de l’amusement … Le re-ordering est de retour ; je le crois moins difficile. Vous devriez tous pouvoir le résoudre sans y passer trop de temps.
Cet exercice est un et sa correction sera en ligne le vendredi 29 juin, tard.
Bon courage à tous. The FORCE is with you…

I) Please, help my student! He really needs you!
Pas d’avalanche de fautes, cette fois encore … Il n’y en a QUE 12. Mais il vous faudra les détecter et les corriger. (Attention ! Vous pourriez être tentés de trouver plus de fautes que les 12 annoncées, mais ce serait vouloir pénaliser les « régionalismes » et expressions familières. Ne le faites pas ! Ne « sanctionnez » que "la grammaire/ syntaxe/ vocabulaire » fautifs."

(« onsen » = Japanese hotsprings)
Now, you can have tatooes and be welcomed in nationals onsen also.
Tatooes, once commonly associated with the country's organized crime gangs (or the yakuza), were long taboo in Japan, especially in communal onsen (hot springs). The ink ban could also extend in gyms and swimming pools.
This is not the first time Japan is trying to ease the mind of tatooed foreign tourists. In 2016, the Japan Tourism Agency urged onsen operators to relax the rules restricting ghuests with body art.
Each facility has rules for tatooed ghuests : while some only allow small tattoos, others provide flesh-colouring stickers for ghuests to place at their ink or offer private bathes for tatooed ghuests.They may also cover tatooes with washcloths or lean against walls to hide them.
The Japan Tourist Agency is issued an official guidance to explain to bath owners that there are often religious, cultural, aesthetical reasons behind the body modification practice.
= 12 mistakes.

II)Can you, please, reorder the words so as to make meaningful sentences… All the words must be used, none should be added! (Not too long … not too difficult!)

1) pain/ people/ tattoos/ physical/ criminals/ meant/ indelibly/ marking/ psychological/ punish/ with/ alike/ were/ them/ to / and/ as= 17
2) culture/ those/ tattoos/ belonging/ illegal/ counter/ when/ were/ were/ more/ the/ even/ embraced/ they/ to/ by/ = 16
3) bandages/ friends/ tattoos/ got/ them/ mine/ smaller/ with/ with/ away/ have/ covering/ of/ with = 14

III)ANOTHER TORTURE? (Inspirée par Maxwell …) Nous partagerons la main ! Maxwell

a) A partir du mot français : « rédaction », trouver au moins 3 traductions anglaises ( possibles différentes que vous utiliserez chacune dans une phrase qui explicitera le contexte dans lequel on peut l'utiliser, l'éventuel registre de langue associé, et les nuances de sens.) Ces 3 expressions anglaises ne devront (si possible) pas être interchangeables et chacune devrait apporter quelque chose de différent.

b) Même chose pour le mot « affaire » ...

Bon courage à tous ! The FORCE is with you!

Ma traduction cela peut aider à trouver les vraies fautes

Maintenant vous pouvez avoir des tatouages et être quand même accueillis dans les sources thermales nationales.
Les tatouages, autrefois associés aux gangs Japonais du crime organisé(ou Yakuza),ont été longtemps tabous au Japon, en particuliers dans les stations thermales en commun.
L'interdiction des tatouages pouvait également s'étendre dans les gymnases et les piscines.
Ce n'est pas la première fois que le Japon essaie de rassurer les touristes étrangers tatoués.En 2016,l'agence du tourisme du Japon a exhorté les dirigeants des stations thermales à assouplir les règles de restrictions pour les personnes pratiquant l'art corporel.
Chaque établissement a ses règles pour les personnes tatouées:alors que certains ne permettent que des petits tatouages, d'autres fournissent des autocollants de couleur chair pour que les hôtes les placent sur leur tatouages ou proposent des bains privés pour les personnes tatouées.
Ils peuvent également couvrir les tatouages avec des gants de toilette ou s'adosser contre les murs pour les cacher .
L'agence de tourisme du Japon a édité un guide officiel pour expliquer aux propriétaires des Bains qu'il y a souvent des raisons religieuses, culturelles esthétiques derrière la pratique de modification du corps.

II)Remettre les mots dans l ordre (READY TO CORRECT )

Hello!

Il va sans dire, mais toujours mieux en le disant, quand même, que si un mot est utilisé plusieurs fois avec une faute par "mon élève", il ne sera comptabilisé que pour UNE SEULE FAUTE. ( On est généreux ou on ne l'est pas ! )
Bonne chasse aux fautes !

Hello, HELP ME!


L'un d'entre vous m'a écrit en mp : " La quinzaine avance vite... et peu ont déjà posté ... "

Exprimant alors mes "angoisses" de ce moment, votre "collègue a bien compris !
Je vous redemande de "me faire signe" pour que je sache à quoi m'attendre ... et préparer (ou si possible éviter) la "panique" du dernier moment. Plusieurs le font déjà et postent des "partiels" ... ou me préviennent du moment approximatif où le travail sera rendu en mp.
Dans la mesure où ma correction collective est "nourrie" de vos travaux, de vos hésitations et de vos "trouvailles" , je ne peux la terminer, ni même vraiment l'entamer, "qu'après coup" ...
Je ne voudrais pas avoir à "décaler" la "deadline" et affichage de la correction, mais je risque de devoir le faire pour que les exercices restent "faisables" pour tous ... J'aimerais l'éviter.
(Nous attendons toujours un volontaire pour la traduction du "Help my Student" précédent ... Je la ferai, si nécessaire, demain ...)

Bon dimanche à tous !

And this was a bad omen, because the Southerners were defeated.*

*Reference : American Civil War, 1861-1865.

Hello everyone
FINISHED
Thanks a lot Here4U I did what I could as for "Reorder the words": it's still too difficult for me

I) Please help my student:
Now, you can have TATTOOS and be welcomed in NATIONAL onsen also.
TATTOOS, once commonly associated with the country's organized crime gangs (or the yakuza), HAVE long BEEN taboo in Japan, especially in communal onsen (hot springs). The ink ban could also extend in gyms and swimming pools.
This is not the first time Japan HAS TRIED to ease the MINDS of TATTOOED foreign tourists. In 2016, the Japan Tourism Agency urged onsen operators to relax the rules restricting GUESTS with body art.
Each facility has rules for TATTOOED GUESTS : while some only allow small tattoos, others provide flesh-COLOURED stickers for GUESTS to place OVER their ink or offer private BATHS for TATTOOED GUESTS.They may also cover TATTOOS with washcloths or lean against walls to hide them.
The Japan TOURISM Agency HAS issued an official guidance to explain to bath owners that there are often religious, cultural, aesthetical reasons behind the body modification practice.

II) Reorder the words:
3) friends of mine have got away with smaller tattoos, with covering them with bandages

III) Another torture? "rédaction":
1) Le fait d'écrire un texte : writing, penning, composition, redaction
- conception, élaboration d'un premier jet : drafting, drawing up
- révision, correction d'un texte : editing, redaction
- la manière d'écrire un texte, formulation, termes employés, langage : wording, phrasing, turn of phrase, expression, formulation, choice of words, phraseology, diction, verbiage
=> WRITING can be a therapy for those who have suffered a traumatic experience. After the DRAFTING phase which consists in making a piece of WRITING in rough form , corrections are made in the revision phase, taking care of the FORMULATION.

2) Le texte rédigé : piece of writing, written material, writing
- L'exercice/devoir scolaire (composition; narration, dissertation) : essay, (dated) composition, theme, paper (=devoir scolaire), report
"Jenny, have you done the COMPOSITION your mistress gave you?" " Yes, mum, I've written my ESSAY. but you'd better call Mrs Patrick 'schoolteacher' instead." "When you give your PAPER to your schoolteacher, make sure you have corrected your own mistakes beforehand!

3) L'ensemble des rédacteurs d'un organe de presse écrite (ou autre), le comité de rédaction : editorial board, editorial staff
-leurs locaux ; bureau de la rédaction : editorial office. newsroom
-NDLR = Editor's Note, editorial note, Ed.
"Look at that editorial note accompanying the article about me! Just what do they mean by this word!?" "I don't know. Why don't you write to the EDITORIAL BOARD?" "You can bet your sweet life that I'll burst in the NEWSROOM and raise a stink if they don't publish an erratum!"

Another torture: "AFFAIRE"
I) Ce qui intéresse/concerne/relève de qqn/qqch :
- ce que l'on a à faire, occupation, fonction, soin, devoir, obligation, charge, activité, travail, cas, dossier, matière, chose : matter, affair, business, occupation, thing.
=> "You still haven't told me why you're leaving..." "I've got a private MATTER to deal with." "What kind of THING is it exactly?" "Well, one of our pals vanished a couple of days ago and I said I'd make it my personal BUSINESS to find him.

- ce qui concerne/intéresse/relève de qqn en particulier, situation personnelle de qqn (c'est son affaire= son problème/souci). : concern, problem, business, things ;
=> "Don't expect me to tell you this, that's none of your CONCERN. Mind your own BUSINESS." "If you prefer to stay silent, it's UP TO YOU : It's your PROBLEM. But it won't help your CASE : it will make THINGS tougher."

- domaine de prédilection : Ex : la mécanique, c'est son affaire ; être à son affaire = se plaire à ce que l'on fait : area, field, sector, (informal) thing
"Repairing is his AREA : he is mechanically minded. When it comes to cars, he really is in his ELEMENT. He is on his GAME I should say, as there's no one better than him."

- ce qui convient, ce qu'il faut, ce qui sert les intérêts de qqn :
ça fera l'affaire. This will do
ça fait son affaire = it suits him/his purpose/his own book ; it serves his purpose
=> "Are you sure you're not feeling cheated?" "Of course not ! This will DO! As a matter of fact, it will even serve my PURPOSE"

- ce qui relève de qqch : question, problème, point, sujet, histoire : matter
"Don't worry, he'll be back soon, it's only a MATTER of time."

II) SITUATION CONFLICTUELLE, ENNUIS
- situation périlleuse, difficile ou embarrassante ; complication, ennui, embarras, difficulté, ennui, souci, histoire, aventure, enquiquinement, problème, source de préoccupation : trouble, difficulty, worry, problem, complication, bother
=> "That was quite a WORRY!" "Yes! That was such a tricky situation: I don't know how you could get yourself out of TROUBLE. As for me, I wouldn't want to get involved in this unfortunate MATTER"

- situation délictueuse, fait scandaleux : scandal; cas, litige, procès, contestation, démêlé : affaire politique, policière : case
affaire contentieuse = legal matter
affaires criminelles = criminal affairs
on ne va pas en faire toute une affaire (= tout un plat, un fromage) : fuss, (informal) big issue, (informal) big deal. ;

Hello, dear Friends,

Cette fois, (« transhumance estivale oblige » ), voici le corrigé très tôt ! L’exercice suivant sera mis en ligne immédiatement aussi, si ma connexion tient bon … Rien n'est moins sûr!
J’espère pouvoir poster le corrigé du 134 demain dans les mêmes conditions. Soyez indulgents …
Peu de participants cette fois (alors que le 134 a eu le succès habituel) … C’est triste … mais ceux qui ont travaillé l’ont, comme toujours, très bien fait. BRAVO et merci à eux.
Comme toujours, je fais appel à des volontaires courageux – et qui ne sont pas en "vacances d’anglais" … - pour les traductions du texte corrigé et des phrases dans l’ordre … L’exercice n’est, pour moi, pas terminé sans cela … Merci d’avance.

I) Please, help my student! He really needs you! Correction:
« onsen » = Japanese hotsprings
Now, you can have tattoos and be welcomed in national onsen too.
Tattoos, once commonly associated with the country's organized crime gangs (or the yakuza), have long been taboo in Japan, especially in communal onsen (hot springs). The ink ban could also extend to gyms and swimming pools.
This is not the first time Japan has tried to ease the minds of tattooed foreign tourists. In 2016, the Japan Tourism Agency urged onsen operators to relax the rules restricting guests with body art specific policies on tattoos.
Each facility has rules for tattooed guests: while some only allow small tattoos, others provide flesh-coloured stickers for guests to place over their ink or offer private baths for tattooed guests. They may also cover tatooes with washcloths or lean against walls to hide them.
The JTA has issued an official guidance to explain to bath owners that there are often religious, cultural, aesthetic or other reasons behind the body modification practices.

Lien internet

- a tattoo= un tatouage
- a guest= un invité, un client.
- to extend to
- to relax rules= assouplir des règles
- to explain something TO someone= expliquer quelque chose à quelqu'un

Le point grammatical le plus fatal à un grand nombre était : "This is not the first time Japan has tried...". L'expression "it'is the first time" est suivi d'un present perfect. Par concordance de temps, "it was the first time" est suivie d'un past perfect : => "it wasn't the first time Japan had tried"...

II) Can you, please, reorder the words so as to make meaningful sentences… All the words must be used, none should be added! (Not too long … not too difficult !)

1) Tattoos were meant to punish people with physical and psychological pain alike, marking them indelibly as criminals. = 17
2) When they were illegal, tattoos were embraced even more by those belonging to the counter culture.= 16
3) Friends of mine with smaller tattoos have got away with covering them with bandages= 14

III)Another torture?
A) rédaction : (Merci Maxwell !)

1) Le fait d'écrire un texte : writing, penning, composition, redaction
- conception, élaboration d'un premier jet : drafting, drawing up
- révision, correction d'un texte : editing, redaction
- la manière d'écrire un texte, formulation, termes employés, langage : wording, phrasing, turn of phrase, expression, formulation, choice of words, phraseology, diction, verbiage

=> WRITING can be a therapy for those who have suffered a traumatic experience. After the DRAFTING phase which consists in making a piece of WRITING in rough form, corrections are made in the revision phase, taking care of the FORMULATION.

2) Le texte rédigé : piece of writing, written material, writing
- L'exercice/devoir scolaire (composition ; narration, dissertation) : essay, (dated) composition, theme, paper (=devoir scolaire), report
=>Jenny, have you done the COMPOSITION your mistress gave you?" " Yes, mum, I've written my ESSAY. but you'd better call Mrs Patrick 'schoolteacher' instead." "When you give your PAPER to your schoolteacher, make sure you have corrected your own mistakes beforehand!

3) L'ensemble des rédacteurs d'un organe de presse écrite (ou autre), le comité de rédaction : editorial board, editorial staff
-leurs locaux ; bureau de la rédaction : editorial office. newsroom
-NDLR = Editor's Note, editorial note, Ed. (Aussi Editor => « Letter to the editor. »
=>"Look at that editorial note accompanying the article about me! Just what do they mean by this word!?" "I don't know. Why don't you write to the EDITORIAL BOARD?" "You can bet your sweet life that I'll burst in the NEWSROOM and raise a stink if they don't publish an erratum!"

B) Même chose pour le mot « affaire ».maxwell a décidé d'écrire une thèse sur le mot et ses différentes traductions !

I) Ce qui intéresse/concerne/relève de qqn/qqch :
- ce que l'on a à faire, occupation, fonction, soin, devoir, obligation, charge, activité, travail, cas, dossier, matière, chose : matter, affair, business, occupation, thing.

- ce qui concerne/intéresse/relève de qqn en particulier, situation personnelle de qqn (c'est son affaire= son problème/souci): concern, problem, business, things;
=> "Don't expect me to tell you this, that's none of your CONCERN. Mind your own BUSINESS." "If you prefer to stay silent, it's UP TO YOU : It's your PROBLEM. But it won't help your CASE : it will make THINGS tougher."

- domaine de prédilection : Ex : la mécanique, c'est son affaire ; être à son affaire = se plaire à ce que l'on fait : area, field, sector, (informal) thing
"Repairing is his AREA : he is mechanically minded. When it comes to cars, he really is in his ELEMENT. He is on his GAME I should say, as there's no one better than him."

- ce qui convient, ce qu'il faut, ce qui sert les intérêts de qqn :
ça fera l'affaire. This will do.

Hello
Je choisis les phrases du II qui m'a posé problème

1) Tattoos were meant to punish people with physical and psychological pain alike, marking them indelibly as criminals.
Les tatouages étaient destinés à matriculer les personnes atteintes de souffrances indifféremment physiques et psychologiques, les marquant à jamais du sceau de criminels.
à Lucile pour la réponse car j'avais fait un contre-sens : j'avais mis : 'les tatouages avaient pour but de punir les gens avec une peine physique aussi bien que psychologique, les identifiant à jamais comme des criminels.

2) When they were illegal, tattoos were embraced even more by those belonging to the counter culture.
Quand ils étaient illégaux, les tatouages étaient encore plus adoptés par ceux qui appartenaient à la contre-culture.

3) Friends of mine with smaller tattoos have got away with covering them with bandages
Des amis à moi avec des tatouages plus petits s'en sont sortis en les recouvrant de pansements.

Hello,
Just a clue about the first sentence:
1) Tattoos were meant to punish people with physical and psychological pain alike, marking them indelibly as criminals.
Punish may have another meaning here; find it and you'll understand the whole sentence.



Réponse : Rack your brains and help!/ 24 de lucile83, postée le 30-06-2018 à 13:43:21 (S | E)
maxwell, no! don't think of any synonym. Read carefully the second part of the sentence :
...marking them indelibly as criminals.
What does it make you think about? ...it is a slang/obsolete word in French, sorry....but you can find it, for sure.

hello my friends and dear HERE4U

My proposal of translation for the text,


Aujourd'hui, vous pouvez avoir des tatouages et être accueilli aussi dans les SPA nationaux.
Les tatouages, autrefois communément associés aux gangs du crime organisé du pays (ou yakuza), ont longtemps été tabous au Japon, en particulier dans les spas communaux (sources chaudes). L'interdiction de l'encre pouvait également s'étendre aux gymnases et aux piscines.

Ce n'est pas la première fois que le Japon essaie d'apaiser l'esprit des touristes étrangers tatoués. En 2016, l'Agence japonaise du tourisme a exhorté les exploitants de spas à assouplir les règles limitant les clients tatoués, et revoir leurs politiques spécifiques à l'art corporel.
Chaque établissement a des règles pour les invités clients tatoués : alors que certains n'autorisent que les petits tatouages, d'autres fournissent des autocollants de couleur chair que les invités peuvent placer sur leur encre ou offrent des bains privés pour les invités tatoués. Ils peuvent aussi couvrir les tatouages avec des lingettes ou s'appuyer contre les murs pour les cacher.
L'agence japonaise du Tourisme a publié un guide officiel pour expliquer aux propriétaires de bains qu'il y a souvent des raisons religieuses, culturelles, esthétiques ou autres derrière les pratiques de modification (de parure**) du corps.

**parure : ce qui orne, embellit
