Xenocide - 2007-08-06 Wow, they didn't even try to find a good pun substitute for "two minus three equals negative fun." Instead it's "two minus three leads to enjoyment of a negative nature."
Herr Matthias - 2007-08-06 I was actually wondering about that. When English-language comedy gets translated into other languages, do the puns get translated directly or localized into some regional equivalent? I guess now I have my answer.
Xenocide - 2007-08-07 Well, at least with Spanish, it depends. Sometimes they replace the joke altogether, sometimes they translate it directly even if it doesn't make sense, sometimes they try to find a middle ground. I think a lot of it depends on what they can fit in with the characters' lip flaps.
