translation needed for thalion video

I have a old video shot in the thalion offices in the early 1990s (I think) (which alex h sent to me).

It is of course in German. Is there anyone here who could help with a translation to English so we can hardsub it or provide a sub file to go with it. I am wanting to put it on exotica, but it would be more useful with subs ;-)

Many Thanks.

Hi BuZz,

I would like to have a look, but I haven't put subtitles on anything yet. So I could make the translation and either you put the subtitles in (I give you the times of course) or I learn how to do it (less preferred ;)).

alexh 04 February 2009 10:59

That is all a subfile is. Times next to text. The format is pretty easy when you've seen it.

TCD 04 February 2009 11:05

Ah, okay that sounds pretty easy indeed :) I'm in for the translation then.

The video was originally filmed by Andreas "Ilja" Franz of Level 16 (or at least it was him who brought it to the Thalion Reunion)

thanks TheCyberDruid, I will send you a pm

Wow i'm keen too having a look at it as you may guess i'm a big fan of the old Thalion group.

alexh 05 February 2009 16:19

It's just a bit of filming in the old Thalion office in G├╝tersloh. Fairly close to the end as they have an Atari Falcon 030 in the office indicating it is late 1992 early 93?

Thalion 05 February 2009 16:38

Nonetheless it is definately interesting.

TCD 05 February 2009 17:02

I will hurry with the subtitles, so that it's available soon :)

Thalion 06 February 2009 08:48

Ok do that but i don't need em. :D

TCD 06 February 2009 09:06

Hehe I know ;) It's just that it won't go public until then :D
Maybe if you ask BuZz really nicely...

BuZz 06 February 2009 09:31

well im sure waiting a few days wont hurt. :)

Subtitle Workshop is great freeware utility for managing/writing subtitles in many different formats - http://www.urusoft.net/products.php?cat=sw

Maybe it'll be useful for you TCD.

We are still in need of this translating. If any german speakers here would be interesting in helping, it would be most appreciated. many thanks.

Where can i download the video? How long is it?

BuZz 14 August 2009 14:00

you can get it here:


alexh 14 August 2009 14:54

I think it was recorded by Andreas "Ilja" Franz.

lomaxx 14 August 2009 15:24

Thanks for the link.

I see some problems in translating it:

- it's quite long with 14 minutes
- i sometimes am having a hard type to understand them even though i am German myself. ;)
- there is not one single bit of useful information in it :D

So it's hard for me to motivate myself. I will not promise anything for now. First i have to get my mind set up.

camera-guy: "<mumble mumble> stop it. collapses ... the whole picture collapses"
laser-guy: "really?"
camera-guy: "yu.."(probably: yes)
laser-guy: "Why that?"
camera-guy: "It collapses immediately. ... Awwh that looks HORRIBLE! Stop it."
laser-guy: "<mumble mumble>" (no idea what he says)

voice from the back: "eerrm, Andreas?"
camera-guy(Andreas): "Yep?"
voice from the back: "Can you ...?" (Maybe something with "reinigen" (clean) or "rein tun" (put in))

<moves to next room>

guy with screwdriver: "Oh no." (loosely translated)
Andreas: "Oh yes."
keyboard: "click clack click clack clack tock tock tock clack clack"
