Source text - English THE FOX AND THE GRAPES
One afternoon there was a fox that was walking through the forest and spotted a bunch of grapes hanging from over a lofty branch. “Just the thing to quench my thirst,” quoted the fox. Taking a few steps backward, the fox jumped but unfortunately he missed the hanging grapes. Again the fox took a few paces backward, ran, and tried to reach them but he still failed.
Finally, giving up, the fox turned up his nose and said. “They’re probably sour anyway,” and proceeded to walk away.
Moral Value: it’s easy to despise what you cannot have.
Translation - Indonesian RUBAH DAN ANGGUR
Suatu siang ada seekor rubah yang berjalan menyusuri hutan dan melihat setangkai anggur menggantung di cabang pohon yang tinggi. “akhirnya ada hal yang bisa memuaskan rasa hausku” kata rubah. Rubah mengambil beberapa langkah ke belakang, berlari lalu melompat, akan tetapi dia belum bisa meraih anggur yang bergantung itu. Sekali lagi, rubah mundur kemudian berlari dan mencoba meraih anggur tersebut tapi tetap gagal.
Akhirnya, rubah menyerah, kemudian mengangkat kepalanya dan berkata “mungkin saja anggur-anggur itu masam “ dan melanjutkan perjalanannya.
Nilai Moral : memang mudah untuk merendahkan apa yang tidak bisa kamu miliki

I'm an English Literature student in Faculty of Languages and Arts at State University of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I took Translation concentration. As an English Literature student especially Translation concentration, I've some experiences in translating or interpreting practice. I've made a subtitle for some variety shows and movies. I've interpreted (Bahasa Indonesia to English and English to Bahasa Indonesia) some videos of Tedx(on YouTube, as tasks actually) and I translate an abstract every Monday in a Translating Practicum class. Recently I and my class friends just finished our project in translating (English-Bahasa Indonesia) of a novel called The First Man by Albert Camus.
