I am doing a project on Gabriel Garcia Marquez's short story "The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World". I would like to get this phrase translated into 14 languages. I am having trouble finding enough people to help me out. I would appreciate it so much if someone from Kudoz could. Thank you so very much!

Spanish translation:"...miren allá, donde el viento es ahora tan manso que se queda a dormir debajo de las camas,..."
Explanation:
Brigid, that's what García Márquez actually wrote in Spanish. (This is the only language you can't "translate" this text into, you need the original)
I just took it from the book, and it is part of a very long sentence.

Good luck :)

Look it up in the original


Explanation:
You shouldn't translate this. You should try to find the original story in Spanish and copy the segment from it.

get the original work in Spanish!


Explanation:
You cannot possibly translate from English something that was originally (and so well) written in Spanish. Whrever you live, you should be able to find an orginal edition. You should then ask people to translate it into all those languages...from the Spanish.
Good luck.
