English to Finnish: Prose
Source text - English ”I know them, I grew up among them. You middle-class liberals like to pet them, but I wouldn’t even let them breed. What we need is an X-ray device under the turnstiles at
football stadiums. Each man going through gets a blast of 900 roentgens right on the testicles. It would be perfectly painless. They wouldn’t know what had happened till they got a wee printed card along with their entrance ticket. ’Dear Sir,’ it would say. ’You may now ride your wife in perfect safety’.
From the novel Lanark: A Life in 4 Books by Alasdair Gray, pub. 1981, Canongate Publishing Ltd.
Translation - Finnish – Tunnen heidänlaisensa; kasvoin heidän parissaan. Te keskiluokkaiset liberaalit haluatte hyysätä niitä, mutta minä en antaisi niiden edes lisääntyä. Jalkapallostadioneiden kääntöporttien alle pitäisi oikeastaan asentaa röntgenlaitteet. Jokainen portista kulkeva mies saisi 900 röntgensädettä suoraan kiveksille. Täysin kivuton toimenpide. Eivät tietäisi siitä ennen kuin saisivat pienen painetun kortin pääsylippunsa mukana. ”Hyvä herra,” siinä lukisi. ”Voitte nyt painaa vaimoanne täysin turvallisesti”.
