Term:
improvement to translation  
by atemp (US), 2019-07-29, 17:45  like dislike  Spam?  
Have long suspected that a longstanding off-the-cuff translation is not the best.
Source: song lyrics as arranged and set by BG composer Filip Kutev. Supposed BG source text, academic-style Roman transliteration, and EN translation below:

Заспала е Фида
(Ансамбъл Филип Кутев)

Заспала е Фида, ле ле,
Заспала е Фида,
Правната градина,
Под бельот трендафил.

Лудо поминало, ле ле,
Едно лудо младо,
Взеде и гердано,
Взеде и гердано.

Що да стори Фида, ле ле,
Кагда каже Фида
На мама на тате
Kъде е гердано?

Zaspala e Fida, le le,
Zaspala e Fida,
Pravnata gradina,
Pod beljot trendafil.

Ludo pominalo, le le,
Edno ludo mlado,
Vzede i gerdano,
Vzede i gerdano.

Što da stori Fida, le le,
Kagda kaže Fida
Na mama na tate
Kŭde e gerdano?

Fida fell asleep,
Fida fell asleep,
In a garden,
Under a white rose.

A crazy one came by,
A crazy young man,
And stole her necklace,
And stole her necklace.

What will Fida say
When she tells
Her mother and father
Where the necklace is?

Subtext/allegory aside, which improvements might apply? /Thanks!
