Hello everybody,

I’ve a problem with a sentence from a French comic duo’s show. It is a sort of tongue-twister and I need to have it transcripted in the original language.

You will find it over here: http://youtu.be/Kjq6Tp1Hal8#t=6m28s

Can you help me please?

Thank you very much / Merci beaucoup

@vetriolo,
There is a subtitle option on the settings button for that clip. You can also reduce the speed.

@fresco,
I know but the subtitles don’t match the sentence: «ce silence ??? sourd et ???» > «et si bon chemin ses solos ou récits historiques unissant ses 16 ans sans»

I also tried to reduce the speed, but failed getting the words.

Any native speaker?

@vetriolo,
It seems that the subtitles are done by a "speech to text" software.

No wonder it cannot translate such alliterative text.

"Ce silence incessant, sourd et si saisissant s'immisce, sensé se faire encenser les consciences, laissant s'insérer un suspense insensé, suave et sentencieux et le superstitieux soucieux de son sort se dresse et sourcille et se laisse ensorceller par ce silence incessant, son récit saisissant."

@timur,
Not bad but I'm not sure about "sensé se faire encenser les consciences," which means very little. I believe it's: s’immisce en ces sphères encensées des consciences Also at the end, I believe it's: "se laisse ensorceller par ce silence incessant, sourd et si saisissant." (a repetition of the first few words)

So, in full: "Ce silence incessant, sourd et si saisissant s’immisce en ces sphères encensées des consciences, laissant s'insérer un suspense insensé, suave et sentencieux, et le superstitieux soucieux de son sort se dresse et sourcille et se laisse ensorceller par ce silence incessant, sourd et si saisissant."
