Default What the?

http://www.guiastartrek.com.ar/datab...=ds9493_5m.htm

Apparently they like us in Argentina. Pity they had to pick my worst fiver to translate (I post this one because that's the one I found during a vanity search for Sa'ar Chasm).

I half suspect that the driving force behind this site is the fan who gave all the staff Argentinian email addresses. I'm given proper credit (the mailto: is even included), and I assume the same was done for all the others they posted, so I don't think I have any cause to jump up and down and get in a huff.

Zeke might, since they don't link to the site or give him credit for the Five Minute concept.

Spanish-language version of 5MV should definitely be located at velocidadridicula.com.

Perhaps that one just translated well.

It's available, and I know some Spanish!

Don't worry, Sa'ar, It's still funny in Spanish!

Looks like they don't know a spamblockified e-mail address when they see one though :?

I looooooooooooooove your fivers!!!! I´m very sorry if someone felt bad about all this, but as i read more fivers i couldn´t keep them to myself so i translated them and added them to guiastartrek.com.ar, a web I contribute to. I will tell the webmaster to add a link to this page, so everyone is satisfied. If you have any problems with me translating the fivers to spanish, pleas let me know, and i will stop inmediatey. Thanks!

No problems whatsoever, marplanaut. In fact, I'd like to link to your translations from this site too. Thanks to you, 5MV has now been translated into its fourth foreign language -- far from being annoyed, I'm delighted and flattered. Thanks!

Dammit, Zeke! You could have at least demanded that we be paid (in pies, naturally). :wink:

I'd say my fivers are actually *funnier* in Spanish! My grasp of the language isn't as good as it should be, but I posted a reply in one of the threads in their forums.

A very good job, Marplanauta, in any case.

It's good when things get added, not lost in translation!
