agree  zoe1: Ja bih ostavila Slava, pa u zagradi (patron saint's day), jer se to vidi i u tekstovima koje ste naveli. Mislim da sam viđala takve prevode.

agree  Dragan Novakovic: Da, prvi put slava u kurzivu i "family patron saint's day" u zagradama, a dalje samo slava. V. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slava
2 hrs

agree  Mark Daniels: I agree with Zorica - I would tend to leave the phrase "slava" but also add an explanation like "family patron saint's day", which is a good description I think, even if the concept of slava is specifically Serbian.

neutral  Aleksandar Gasic: Posto se trazi "u smislu pravoslavnog praznika", onda da, slazem se. Medjutim, u navedenom kontekstu moze biti i u smislu "glory". Onako na prvi pogled, slava (krsna) se slavi, a ovo mi je nekako...
4 hrs

neutral  Mira Stepanovic: Slažem se sa Aleksandrom, mislim da je pogrešno protumačen kontekst, po meni bi trebalo da bude 'glory/fame of Serbia' kao npr. ovde: http://www.babamim.com/role_of_the_gusle_guslar 'Pevao mu srpsku slavu' - 'He sang to him of Serbian glory'
4 hrs

neutral  Dusica Simic: Mislim da su Aleksandar i Mira potpuno u pravu - u ovom kontekstu treba koristiti 'glory'.
5 hrs

neutral  Dubravka Hrastovec: I ja bih rekla da su Aleksandar i Mira u pravu, ovdje se ne radi o prazniku.
8 hrs

agree  Aribas (X): pored "family patron saint's day" slava moze biti i "village patron saint's day"

neutral  maja brown: slazem se sa Aleksandrom, Mirom, Dusicom i Dubravkom, zbog konteksta.

neutral  Vuk Vujosevic: Слажем се са Александром, Миром, Душицом и Дубравком, то би трбао да буде контекст.
