Subtitles' summarisation Aug 16, 2008

I do not agree with it for one single and SIMPLE (e.g., well, complex, actually) reason: it leads to... beepee adaptations. I mean, without such beepee adaptations, you wouldn't have to maintain that 'Cum de se poate traduce atat de aberant din engleza?' thread here, now, would you? Well, it's all based on excessive sumarisation, not to mention on the poor knowledge of the English slang and regionalisms, and such, that the subtitler has.

Watch more TV, fellow Romanian 'prozians', and especially Romanian channels. You'll get my point...
