Before submitting a translation, please check our Translations Page to make sure we don’t already have an official translation of the song in your language.
While we recognize it’s impossible to create a perfect translation, we encourage translators to try to find the best balance of these three priorities while translating:
• Accuracy of Translation
Retaining and communicating the meaning of the original lyrics
• Melodic Correspondence
Keeping the melody as close to the original in rhythm and notes as possible
• Aesthetics/Cultural Relevance
Seeking to make the translation sound like a song original to the translated language, as far as aesthetics, poetry, musicality, and style go
We strongly encourage you to send us an audio or video recording of the translation so we can hear how it sounds.
We will review your translation and contact you about the status of the translation as soon as we are able.
