English to Japanese: 7th ProZ.com Translation Contest - Entry #5948
Source text - English Winters used to be cold in England. We, my parents especially, spent them watching the wrestling. The wrestling they watched on their black-and-white television sets on Saturday afternoons represented a brief intrusion of life and colour in their otherwise monochrome lives. Their work overalls were faded, the sofa cover—unchanged for years—was faded, their memories of the people they had been before coming to England were fading too. My parents, their whole generation, treadmilled away the best years of their lives toiling in factories for shoddy paypackets. A life of drudgery, of deformed spines, of chronic arthritis, of severed hands. They bit their lips and put up with the pain. They had no option but to. In their minds they tried to switch off—to ignore the slights of co-workers, not to bridle against the glib cackling of foremen, and, in the case of Indian women, not to fret when they were slapped about by their husbands. Put up with the pain, they told themselves, deal with the pain—the shooting pains up the arms, the corroded hip joints, the back seizures from leaning over sewing machines for too many years, the callused knuckles from handwashing clothes, the rheumy knees from scrubbing the kitchen floor with their husbands' used underpants.
When my parents sat down to watch the wrestling on Saturday afternoons, milky cardamon tea in hand, they wanted to be entertained, they wanted a laugh. But they also wanted the good guy, just for once, to triumph over the bad guy. They wanted the swaggering, braying bully to get his come-uppance. They prayed for the nice guy, lying there on the canvas, trapped in a double-finger interlock or clutching his kidneys in agony, not to submit. If only he could hold out just a bit longer, bear the pain, last the course. If only he did these things, chances were, wrestling being what it was, that he would triumph. It was only a qualified victory, however. You'd see the winner, exhausted, barely able to wave to the crowd. The triumph was mainly one of survival.
Translation - Japanese イギリスの冬は寒い。私たち、特に両親はよくテレビでレスリングを見ながら過ごした。土曜日の昼下がりに白黒テレビで見るレスリングの試合は、彼らの灰色の生活に彩りを与える唯一の楽しみだった。彼らの作業着は色褪せ、何年も換えていないソファーカバーも、そして彼らが英国に来る前に係わりあった人々の思い出も色褪せてしまった。私の両親や同じ世代の人たちは皆、わずかな賃金のために工場の辛い仕事に耐え、それと引換えに人生の最も輝かしい時期を失ってしまった。重労働、曲がった腰、慢性化した関節炎、大怪我をした手、そんな人生だったが唇を噛みしめて痛みに耐えた。そうするしかなかったからだ。彼らは同僚が侮辱されるのを無視し、耳障りな声で口うるさい現場監督への軽蔑は心の中で押し殺した。そして、インド人女性の場合、それは夫に平手打ちされてもくよくよせず、痛みに耐え、痛みと上手く付き合えと自分に言い聞かせることだった。その痛みとは腕を突き抜ける鋭い痛みであり、衰えた股関節、何年もミシンに向かっていたため硬くなった背中、手洗いの洗濯で節くれだった手、夫が穿き古した下着でキッチンの床を磨いてリュウマチになった膝の痛みである。
