nemam reči

Šta je ovo?
Događalo mi se ponekad da baš moram da prevedem nešto sa srpskog na engleski, i udarim glavom o zid, kako i priliči prevodiocu. Jedan od tih zidova su reči koje ama nikako ne postoje u engleskom, nego mora okolo.

Ako umete da pročitate ovaj tekst, onda vam objašnjenje tih reči ne treba - ali treba za anglofone čitaoce, a i da malo proverite jesam li ih valjano objasnio. Oko nekih sam konsultovao te anglofonce, neke su tako i nestale sa spiska, a oko većine pomoći nema.

Reč koje nema
opisni prevod na engleski
to acquire the skill of walking, as a baby or when relearning it
similarly, propevati - to start singing (actually mostly means „to start confessing stuff under interrogation“), prozviždati - to start whistling (but mostly means that jam has developed a fungal culture which emits gases), proneti - start laying eggs.

nope, that's a surname

rasaniti se
literally, to undream oneself, i.e. to become fully awake
report would be close enough, though „javiti“ is more „let know“
the seconds hand on a clock
c'mon, this is a technical term, there must be a word for it
prometna tabela
transactional table
look „promet“ above - anything that happens and is registered goes into such tables, even when there was absolutely no transaction between any two entities. Even event logs are such traffic tables.
matična tabela
lookup table
but it remains a matična (matica is the queen bee, or mainstream of a river, or a register such as census) even if you never do any looking
the day after tomorrow
see prekjuče
the day before yesterday
too short
the other day
I like the use of definite article. There are only two days in existence, this day and the other one.
the evening before the last
see sinoć
last night
actually wrong half of the time, because it may mean the whole night, while „sinoć“ actually means yesterday evening
even though the root of the word means „this night“, but the word for that is now „noćas“
make publicly known
