    Request: Spanish Picket Signs

    I'm not sure where this should go, so I'm posting it here. Mods, feel free to move if I'm out of place.

    So, here's the lowdown. I live in Florida. Most people here speak Spanish as their first language. I don't speak a lick of it, but managed to make a Spanish picket sign for March 15th, and it was a hit! So I'd like to make a few more, but I have no idea where to begin on how to make one, let alone what would be an effective message.

    Your signs should be focused on religion and family, those are th thing they will pay attention to. Jesus was a man lover & child molestor who died for his own sins will be excelent for gatering support near catholic churchs, and latino comunities, but disconnection and child abuse will also create a great impact, remember, for most latinos, cubans, mexicans or wharever, nothing is more important than god and family

    I translated a handful of ideas from the "Ideas for picket signs" thread in Current Activism Projects:

    La salvación debe ser gratis (Salvation should be free)
    La duda no es un crímen (Doubt is not a crime)
    La Cientología se rompe familias (Scientology breaks up families)
    "Cual tipo de religión desatiende a sus niños?" (What kind of religion neglects its children - from "Dear Amanda")
    La Cientología mata (Scientology kills)
    Ilumine mi mente, no mi cartera (Enlighten my mind, not my wallet)

    I'm not a native speaker, so someone might want to grammar-check these first, though.
  5. Isaac Cox Member

    ?Quiere usted salvación?
    Puede comprarlo para solo

    That first question mark shoud be upside down. Can't find it on Character Map. =\

    BTW that reads: "Do you want salvation? You can buy it for just $400,000."

    Re: Request: Spanish Picket Signs

    OK, some little review from a native speaker.

    " Quiere la salvación?
    Puede comprarla por sólo U$400.000"

    Re: Request: Spanish Picket Signs

    Good ones. Only require some minor check.

    The official name of the CoS in spanish is "Iglesia Internacional de la Cienciología"
    Salvation should be free-> La salvación debería ser gratis
    Doubt is not a crime-> Dudar no es un crimen
    Scientology breaks up families-> La Cienciología destruye familias
    What kind of religion neglects its children -> Qué clase de religión desampara a sus niños?
    Scientology kills-> La Cienciología mata
    Enlighten my mind, not my wallet->mm, sorry I don't know to translate the pun in this words. Enlighten here has the "mind" connotation and the "weight" connotation, but in spanish "Iluminar" doesn't have the "weight" one.

    Re: sure

    Thanks for all these. Some minor reviews here:

    These two are contradictory. I don't know the original of 008, but I think the translation might be wrong.
    This one doesn't make much sense either.

    Should be "Yo apoyo a Anónimo" (Anonymous has been translated as Anónimo in spanish in the "why we protest" homepage)

    "Soy demasiado pobre para creer en la cienciología" (there should be a "la" before "cienciología" in most of this picket sign translations).

    Re: Request: Spanish Picket Signs

    I guess the info about Jesus is from the OT8 document. I highly recommend not to use this one as there is no way of proving it really, as the attorneys finally denied that it's scripture afaik. This could also paint us as bigot in the eye of the public... actually we might stress the family thing a bit as it'll be about disconnection...

    Re: Request: Spanish Picket Signs

    Also, just because

    Somos el Anonimos.
    Somos el Legion.
    No Perdonamos.
    No Olvidamos.

    Re: Request: Spanish Picket Signs

    Change the para to por. Otherwise, it doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
  13. EvilShoto Member

    Re: Request: Spanish Picket Signs

    It would be:

    Somos Anonimo (or Anonymous)
    Somos Legión
    No perdonamos
    No olvidamos.
  14. anonmx Member

    Re: sure

    I'm pretty sure the right one "Cienciologia", although most franchises still use the handle "Dianetica" and the churches use the original term "Scientology" ...
  15. EvilShoto Member

    Re: Request: Spanish Picket Signs

    Yes, because in Spain before it was Cienciologia it was called Dianetica (Dianetics) until it got bigger and with more members, but now is more known as Cienciologia because people in TV and popular speak use the newest term, in this case, Cienciologia. Dianetica is more the series of books they released before the funding of the church.
