The Writer They Call Tay

Translation time!

I finally saw Frozen tonight, and wow! It was awesome. It's so nice to see a proper Disney musical again, and it was so lovely and sweet. My favourite thing about Disney movies is that they always get translated, so I decided to do a little back translation of 'Let It Go'.

Translation under the cut. This song has many exclamation marks.

L'hiver s'installe
Doucement dans la nuit
La neige est reine à son tour
Un royaume de solitude
Ma place est là, pour toujours
Winter creeps in
Softly in the night
It's the snow's turn to be queen
A lonely kingdom
My place is here, forever

Le vent qui hurle en moi
Ne pense plus à demain
Il est bien trop fort
J'ai lutté en vain
The wind that cries in me
Doesn't think about tomorrow any longer
It's far too strong
I've fought in vain
Cache tes pouvoirs
N'en parle pas
Fais attention, le secret survivra !
Pas d'états d'âme
Pas de tourments, de sentiments
Hide your powers
Don't talk about them
Pay attention, the secret will survive!
Don't be emotional
No torment, no feelings
Libérée, délivrée !
Je ne mentirai plus jamais
Libérée, délivrée
C'est décidé, je m'en vais !
J'ai laissé mon enfance en été
Perdue dans l'hiver
Le froid est pour moi le prix de la liberté
Freed, released!
I won't lie any more
Freed, released!
It's decided, I'm on my way!
I've let the summer of my childhood
Get lost in the winter
For me, the cold's the price of my liberty
Quand on prend de la hauteur
Tout semble insignifiant
La tristesse, l'angoisse et la peur
M'ont quittée depuis longtemps !
When we rise above
Everything seems insignificant
Sadness, anguish and fear
I have long since left behind!
Je veux voir ce que je peux faire
De cette magie pleine de mystère
Le bien le mal
Je dis tant pis
Tant pis !
I want to see what I can do
With this mysterious magic
Goodness, evil
I say never mind
Never mind!
Libérée, délivrée !
Les étoiles me tendent les bras !
Libérée, délivrée !
Non, je ne pleure pas !
Me voilà, oui, je suis là
Perdue dans l'hiver...
Freed, released!
The stars hold me in their arms!
Freed, released!
No, I'm not crying any more!
Here I am, yes, I am here
Lost in the winter...
Mon pouvoir vient du ciel et envahit l'espace
Mon âme s'exprime en dessinant et sculptant dans la glace
Et mes pensées sont des fleurs de cristal gelées
Je ne reviendrai pas
Le passé est passé !
My power comes from the sky and takes over the world
My soul expresses itself through designing and sculpting the ice
And my thoughts are frozen crystal flowers
I will not go back
The past is past!
Libérée, délivrée !
Désormais plus rien ne m'arrête !
Libérée, délivrée !
Plus de princesse parfaite !

Je suis là comme je l'ai rêvé...
Perdue dans l'hiver !
Le froid est pour moi le prix de la liberté
Freed, released!
From now on nothing will stop me!
Freed, released!
No more the perfect princess!

I'm here just like I've always dreamed
Lost in the winter!
For me, the cold's the price of my liberty
