German to English: Excerpt from Jim Knopf Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - German Exzerpt vom zehnten Kapitel aus "Jim Knopf und die Wilde 13"
"Jim stürzte zu seiner Lokomotive hin, die wie ein Käfer auf dem Rücken lag, und untersuchte, ob ihr etwas geschehen war. Außer ein paar kleinen Kratzern hatte sie zum Glück keinen Schaden genommen. Die sonderbare Rutschpartie schien sie nur etwas verdattert zu haben."
Translation - English Excerpt from the tenth chapter of "Jim Knopf and the Fierce 13"
"Jim stormed to his locomotive, which lay on its back like a huge bug. He looked to see if anything had happened to it. Fortunately, except for a few small scratches, no harm had come to it and the extraordinary glissade appeared to have only fazed it a bit."
