Anch'io ho fatto due liste sulle traduzioni dei titoli. Evidentemente non sono l'unica a cui non piacciono :P
Posted: 7 years, 10 months ago at Dec 12 19:49
adesso le vengo a vedere allora! :D
comunque...a volte ci sono delle "traduzioni" davvero insensate!
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Dec 7 18:00
Lista molto interessante, però... I beg to differ! :)
Per me, il titolo italiano non deve per forza essere una traduzione parola per parola. Anzi, non è neanche detto che debba essere una vera e propria *traduzione* del titolo originale. E' semplicemente un altro titolo, che secondo chi distribuisce il film arriva meglio al pubblico italiano.
In ogni caso si tratta di scelte, quindi non parlerei di traduzioni "non corrette", ma di titoli che non sono la traduzione del titolo originale, oppure sono traduzioni poco letterali. A volte felici e altre volte, è vero, assolutamente infelici! :D
Certi titoli riadattati però hanno funzionato bene, mi pare. Pensa per esempio al "Tempo delle mele", che oramai è un'espressione entrata nel linguaggio comune come sinonimo di adolescenza.
Del resto, non succede solo per l'Italia. Nella lista c'è anche The Legend of 1900, che in realtà è il titolo inglese per il film italiano "La leggenda del pianista sull'oceano".

Sono d'accordo che alcuni titoli completamente cambiati o "tradotti con fantasia" siano riusciti particolarmente bene (ad esempio "Le ali della libertà")...però penso che se io fossi colui che ha scelto il titolo originale, non mi piacerebbe che me lo storpiassero!
La traduzione fantasiosa a fini commerciali poi, secondo me, è la peggiore!! Credo che mantenere il titolo originale, quando possibile, sia la scelta migliore. Altrimenti io lo tradurrei il più possibile cercando di mantenere il significato originale del titolo.
