Translation - Courage from Haruka Tomatsu 2014/12/19 06:05
To train my brain in understanding japanese Sentences I try to translate texts and try to stay close to the original.

This is a example. Can you tell me if I got the right meaning. And of course there will be mistakes. Can you guys point them out for me. Thank you so far.

ずっと光の中 昨日までは無かった 足跡を辿ってきたほど
ゴールの見えない迷路 雨に打たれた地図 後悔も何もないけど

叫んだ声は
きっと届くから
この物語の始まる鐘の音が繋ぐ旅の途中で

...

My translation:
Continuesly in midst of light until yesterday, the footsteps I followed vanished the more and more I went (-) in a rainy labyrinth with a goal I can´t see and a map got strucked.
However there is nothing to regret.

My voice´s scream surely arrives, therefore this beginning of a story chimes and spread among it´s way...

Here I translated some more. I would appreciate a correction for somebody.

君が描いた未来の世界は いつかの空に導かれて
どんな夢重ねて偽る事のないあの光りを ah on give for my way

もっと先に見える希望だけ残した 傷跡が癒える事はない
最低何か一つ手に入る物があったら それだけで何もいらない

届けた空が
まだ孤独なら
この物語の終わりを告げる音聞かせて

As for you who drew the future of the world, you sometimes get guided from heaven.
What dream repeatedly not deceiving you that light on give for my way.

Even more before a wish was in sight, I simply left it behind. A scar not needed to be healed.

If I meet the least something only to obtain a possession, by that much I won´t need it.

Your "translation" makes zero sense, it sounds like Google Translate. I suggest you try simpler texts for now.

Okay thanks for your reply but it would help me more if you could tell me how you would translate for example the first sentence. So I can compare what I´ve made wrong.

You're picking up the individual words but (at least in my view, as a native speaker of the Japanese language) are missing the phrase connections here and there. And in the first place, translating (or interpreting) lyrics - poems - is no easy task.
