Hej!

I'm Japanese translator.

Now I'm translation a old Norwegian song,"Aa, hugen min".

I consulted dictionary and searched internet many times, but I can't understand 4 word- eg, hev, ersom and aarom. I'll write the song below.

Aa, hugen min eg ikkeje venda der eg hev lagt
Han der lyt han enda,
Der eg hev lagt han, der lyt han bli.
Saa hev eg vaare i all min tid.

Det ersom hjarta i bringa bankar.
kvar gong du leikar i mine tankar.
det ersom gull i aarom brann
kvar einast gong du i minnet rann.

If you have any idea, please let me know!

trylleringen

Almost non-topical... Oct 20, 2008

This being a Norwegian forum, I'm not sure how we could best help you. I have decided to approve your post, in the hope that a subscriber might have thoughts on how to assist you. To help the process, you might want to elaborate on exactly why you are translating a highly dialectic, very old poem.

Yes, maybe you should have this as a terms question. But it's tedious when you have to set up four of them. Anyway, the answers are pretty straightforward:

eg - 1st person singular pronoun
hev - present tense of verb "ha" (Engl. have)
ersom - probably a mistake in the original, should have a space between "er" and "som"
aarom - dative plural of "aare" (Engl. vein)

I'm really surprised and impressed if you understand the rest of it without problems, though. It seems to me there are several more mistakes in the original.

Best regards,
LEF

Thanks Oct 21, 2008

I'm translating the poem, because a Japanese amateur chorus group want to sing this song.
I don't know why they chose this poem, because I got the job via a translation agency, not directlly from the client.
Anyway the answer Lars Finsen gave me, helps me a lot.
