English to Russian: Scarborough Fair (the male part of the song)
General field: Art/Literary
Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - English
Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;
Remember me to the one who lives there,
For once she was a true love of mine.

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt,
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;
Without any seam or needlework,
Then she shall be a true love of mine.

Tell her to wash it in yonder well,
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;
Where never sprung water or rain ever fell,
And she shall be a true love of mine.

Tell her to dry it on yonder thorn,
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;
Which never bore blossom since Adam was born,
Then she shall be a true love of mine.
Translation - Russian
В Скарборо ярмарка: шум, суета,
Петрушка, тимьян, розмарин, шалфей…
Встретишь там деву — знай: это та,
Что когда-то была любовью моей.

Сошьёт пусть рубаху из тонкого льна, —
Петрушка, тимьян, розмарин, шалфей —
Не сделав ни шва, не скроив полотна:
И вновь она станет любовью моей.

Пусть же в колодец её окунёт, —
Петрушка, тимьян, розмарин, шалфей —
Не пивший дождя, родниковых вод:
И вновь она станет любовью моей.

Повесит её сушиться на клён, —
Петрушка, тимьян, розмарин, шалфей —
Что цветов не давал с начала времён:
И вновь она станет любовью моей.

Roald Dahl said, “Life is more fun if you play games.”
I say, “Games are more fun if their characters speak the same language as gamers.”
So my mission is simple: I make gamers and game characters speak one language and share one life.
