  1. Summary

    This series was inspired by a post I saw on tumblr wherein a French blogger was watching the English version of Treasure Planet for the first time and remarked that the lyrics performed in the montage sequence were VERY different between the versions. I started poking around into other localizations to see how the narrative of the song changed across languages.

    Making back-translations has been an interesting endeavor which made me realize that, even though John Rzeznik's song shipped out with the same story, people all over the world have a different experience when they watch Treasure Planet. It's all thanks to Disney's localization studios who pull in translators and the voice talents of dub actors and singers. It certainly is a challenge for each performance of the song to maintain the same tune while also bending to the culture and conventions of its target language.
    Members of the youtube community have made accessing these performances possible by uploading music vids to the web, and so many people also express the desire to share their language with the world by bringing these covers back into English.

    I'm just humble student of Classical Latin who enjoys playing with language.

    Summary

    "Silver had a strange thought; that he was going to suffer by some creature or chaos called "James." "

    It had come to Silver’s attention, through his communes with his men on varying ports, that there was one man who claimed he feared him among all other men, and John Silver knew this to be folly, for he feared no-one and nothing, and he himself had been feared of by none other than Captain Flint himself. The thought was enough to make Silver smirk like a basking crocodile.
