Annunciation

Post by Reyzadren » 09 Oct 2017 03:40

Let's have members here translate these 2 sentences. Source: Taken from the translation example on my conlang's wiki article.
EDIT: The instructions are made clearer.

:eng: English
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was incredibly gifted in many ways.
From sketches to paintings to scientific inventions (like the parachute), Leonardo was a man ahead of his time.

A little thread crossover that was not made explicit.

Over here

you are directed in the first post to go here

the first block of which has the griuskant paragraph featured in this translation exercise with a picture of Verrocchio and Leonardo's painting, (The) Annunciation. My guess would be that after the first two sentences we are meant to translate about what a whiz-bang guy Leonardo was, the griuskant paragraph expounds somewhat on the painting in question.

lol no, I just want y'all to translate these 2 sentences into your own natlangs/conlangs, just like every other thread in this subforum. There is no cross-over with my conlang thread whatsoever as the first post here is merely my own translation/gloss.

:eng: English

^tldr: Translate these 2 sentences.
