Su’cuy vode!

I have translated the first chapter of the book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone into Mando’a!

I was inspired to do this when I looked if there was a word for “letter” (in regards to mail). Whenever I see the word letter, I’m always reminded of the scene where letters shoot out of the fireplace and becomes a blizzard of mail (fond memories to be sure! :thumbup: ). So I decided to translate the book into Mando’a for a bit of practice with translating.

Here’s a link to the PDF of the first chapter. Feel free to read it and critique the grammar:

I feel I should about the seemingly random Mando’a words followed by English words in brackets. Those are words that I created myself when I felt that they were necessary to be made. I will provide a list below with the words that I created in the translation of the chapter.

Hope you dont mind if i borrow some of your words for my vocabulary, really good work. Wondering also if we somehow made some of the constructs the same by accident

Go ahead! :)

Half the reason I have started this project was to see how well equipped Mando'a was with vocabulary

I have a question. You created a word for 'good luck,' which I love the literal translation of. My question is, what is the idiomatic difference between you word and 'k'oya'ci?
Not a criticism, just wondering about the reason.

"Jate’karala" was created to make the adjective "lucky", while I imagined that "k'oya'ci" is a wish for good luck.

Haven’t gone through the whole list of new words yet, but I have some suggestions on the ones I did research. Got as far as the ‘telephone’.
Hope it will be helpful.

hokanar - ??? tape as a verb? hokan means cut, not sure it’s the correct word

Correct:
tenhaur’kemuryc -> cu’tehnau’yc = vanishing, disappearing
arasuumyc -> aras = same
bajur’taap -> baju’yam = school
haal’joraryc -> haal’joryc = shrill, high-pitched (sound)
kirir -> kyrir = finish, be done with, to end
taab’kaab -> tab = step, pace (distance)
epar’yamika -> paryai = kitchen/dining room (analogy with karyai)
kaj’tracyn -> skragot = stove
goten’taap -> go’taap = birthplace, place of origin (not only of people)
gaanynar’pelid -> gaan’rugam = punching bag
mirdar -> mird = thinking, thought

Specify:
ru’la = previous, former
nu’cov’briik’la = did you mean ‘untidy’?
Ka’ra = stars (ancient Mandalorian myth - ruling council of fallen kings) – original Karen Traviss word

Add:
ve’la = next, latter

It’s just my thoughts and suggestions, made some words a little simpler.
