Up for a challenge? Romeo and Juliet in Simplified Chinese

June 14, 2010, 07:59 AM posted in General Discussion
In posting a comment on another thread (http://chinesepod.com/lessons/world-cup-and-diamonds#comment-181111) I made reference to a quote from Romeo and Juliet, namely "A plague on both their houses!" Rather than attempting to translate from scratch, I decided to look for an online translation of the play in to Chinese, and came across this: http://www.tianyabook.com/waiguó005/s/shashibiya/lmoy/index.html If you're up for some serious linguistic exercise, have fun! It is at least divided into the six acts, but, alas, does not seem to be searchable by scene or by line. Oh, and if you were curious, the line I was looking for was translated thusly: 你们这两家倒霉的人家 Tāmen zhè liǎng jiā dǎoméide jiā!
