Hello np,

Inspector: Beg your pardon , My Lord. I know that it's unorthodox. But Mr. Holmes here, he's been making some serious accusations about you and the Order.

Count: I see.

Holmes: Well, at least this solves the great mystery of (just)how you became an Inspector. [Inspector punches Holmes]

Inspector: Excuse me, My Lord, but I've been wanting to do that for a long time.

Count: Well, Inspector, I have five minutes before my next engagement so why don't you regale me with your stories of conspiracy. Thank you, Lestrade.
Inspector: My Lord.

Holmes: I'm curious Count. Did you assist Blackwood in all the murders or just the one I prevented? Very distinctive, those hand-made shoes of yours. But the price of quality is often the unique imprint they leave. Nonetheless, I confess to being completely outmatched: I could deduce very little from my investigation. Fortunately, there's nothing more stimulating than a case where everything goes against you. How many Members of Parliament do you intend to murder at noon today? Man, Ox, Eagle, Lion. The Lion's (Lion is) Parliament, isn't it?

Count: Very clever. But it's not murder, Mr Holmes, it's mercy. We are giving the weak masses a strong shepherd. Don't you see it's for their own…

Hello np

But the price of quality is often the unique imprint they leave.

= mais le prix de la qualité est souvent l'unique empreinte qu'elles laissent.

On parle de chaussures qui sont de qualité et qui n'ont laissé que l'empreinte de cette qualité.Tout ce qu'elles laissent comme souvenir est leur prix élevé.

Tu m'inquiètes dear np! cette phrase me paraissait facile et tout à coup j'ai un doute

Bonjour NP,Lucile,et tout le monde,

Il y a, je pense, un jeu de mot sur le mot "empreinte":
les pieds nus, sur le sable mouillé, laissent leur empreinte sur le sable; c'est à dire une trace.
Ici, les chaussures, de luxe, ne laissent que l'empreinte, le souvenir, d'un prix très élévé.
La traduction de Lucile est parfaite.

Hello dear np..and the group,

Before I go back to my correction, let me post what I understand or "reconstruct" , for the video still comes to me in bits and pieces !

---------------------------

Woilà...et toujours grand merci de tels exercices sur ce site.(je vais voir ce point de discussion...

..Je crains bien , moi aussi,de proposer la même traduction. Tout est question de prix à payer et d'excellence (c'est d'la qualité , ces chaussures sur mesure !) ,non ? Puis d'empreinte ou marque que cela vous laisse ? Mais à l'époque, all shoes were hand-made , weren't they ? This is just a puzzling allusion...you and they understand , isn't it ?

Ou alors, on parle de la position , condition, titre "qualité" ..et c'est seul le titre qui vous reste ? Comme un ministre français ? Il est sûrement plus confortable d'être un "quidam" qu'un MP : on en meurt pas! Tu nous embrouilles, dear np...

Je préfère une bonne marque payée cher (donc moins de chaussures) et qui dure ! Ce flash doit être une révélation ..Et de toute façon, "la valeur n'attend point le nombre des années "!

Hello,

Quand il dit:
But the price of quality is often the unique imprint they leave.

en fait les chaussures ont laissé leur empreinte,qui est de ne laisser aucune trace; elles sont ainsi très 'distinctive' comme il le dit juste avant.




Réponse: Sherlock Holmes I-Ecouter de may, postée le 22-04-2011 à 01:26:04 (S | E)
Hello,

Aucune idée spécifique, notrepere...sauf que:

"The unique imprint" laissée par le prix payé pour la qualité "very distinctive" de ses chaussures est l'évidence de son crime du meutre.

Alors, Count said: "Very clever, Mr. Holmes"

Inspector: My Lord.
Holmes: I'm curious Count…did you assist Blackwood in all the murders or just the one I prevented? Very distinctive, those hand-made shoes of yours. But the price of quality is often the unique imprint they leave. Nonetheless, I confess to being completely outmatched: I could deduce very little from my investigation. Fortunately, there's nothing more stimulating than a case where everything goes against you. How many Members of Parliament do you intend to murder at noon today? Man, Ox, Eagle, Lion. The Lion's (Lion is) Parliament, isn't it?
Count: Very clever. But it's not murder, Mr Holmes, it's mercy. We are giving the weak masses a strong shepherd. Don't you see it's for their own…


Voici quelques mots problématiques:

My Lord (Oxford) ou my Lord (Macmillan), M'Lord, M'Lud
used as a polite way of addressing a lord, judge, or bishop (Macmillan)
unorthodox (adj) [ ʌnˈɔːθədɒks ]
different from what is usual or accepted
She was well known for her unorthodox, sometimes shocking, opinions. (Macmillan)
Steiner was recognized as an original if unorthodox thinker. (Cambridge)
Her unorthodox views tend to attract controversy. (Longman)

order (n) [ ˈɔːdə(r) ]
(If you are speaking about a particular order, it should be capitalised: Order)
a secret society whose members meet for special ceremonies (Oxford)
the Ancient Order of Druids

solves the great mystery
solve (v) [ sɒlv ]
to find the correct answer or explanation for something
He hopes to solve the mystery of the plane’s disappearance. (Macmillan)

regale (v) [ rɪˈɡeɪl ]
regale somebody with something
to amuse or entertain somebody with stories, jokes, etc
He regaled us with tales of his days as a jazz pianist. (Oxford)
At dinner Grandpa regaled us with tales of his youth. (Macmillan)
The sailor regaled us all night with stories of his adventures. (Cambridge)

prevent (v) [ prɪˈvent ]
to stop somebody from doing something; to stop something from happening
The accident could have been prevented. (Oxford)
The government took steps to prevent a scandal.
Nothing would prevent him from speaking out against injustice.

But the price of quality is often the unique imprint they leave.

Unlike shoes which are mass-produced, hand-made shoes are unique and distinctive. Here, the word 'price' is synonymous with 'consequence' rather than 'cost'. The word 'imprint' is synonymous with 'footprint'. This is similar to the expression 'to pay the price' which means 'to suffer the consequences'.

pay the price (Cambridge)
to experience the bad result of something you have done
If you abuse your body now, you'll pay the price when you're older.
They're now paying the price for past mistakes. (Oxford)

The sentence can thus be rewritten as:

But the consequence of buying those high quality hand-made shoes is that they leave a unique footprint.


to be outmatched
J'ai découvert que le mot « outmatch » n'existe pas dans ancun dictionnaire britannique!
to prove superior to (Merriam)
I believe my horse would outmatch any other horse in racing history.
Synonym: outdo (to be outdone)

deduce (v) [ dɪˈdjuːs ]
to form an opinion about something based on the information or evidence that is available (Oxford)
The facts can be deduced from an examination of the data. (Macmillan)
We cannot deduce very much from these figures. (Cambridge)
We can deduce a lot from what people choose to buy. (Oxford)

stimulating (v) [ ˈstɪmjuleɪtɪŋ ]
making you feel interested (Macmillan)
She found her new job challenging and stimulating.
The college offers a challenging and stimulating environment in which to study.

I hope you enjoyed the exercise. There will be a follow-up in a few days. Happy Easter everyone!
