From Linguifex
Jump to: navigation, search


The Internationale is an international anthem for leftism, being a standard and symbol of the socialist & communist movements since the establishment of it as the official anthem of the Second International, of which its title arises from. The song originally began as a French poem written by attendee of the Internationals & anarchist Comrade Eugène Pottier, before being assiğned to music by Belgian composer & socialist Comrade Pierre De Geyter in 1888. Since then, it was briefly adopted as the anthem of the USSR and has been translated into a wide variety of Natlangs.

The song has been translated into a number of Conlangs for the purpose of testing the language after its creation is significantly completed, similar to how The Tower of Babel and the first article of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights are used for these purposes. The Internationale, in particular, due to it being translated widely into a large variety of languages and its symolism in internationality.

French lyrics Literal English translation
First (1st) stanza

Debout, les damnés de la terre
Debout, les forçats de la faim
La raison tonne en son cratère
C'est l'éruption de la fin
Du passé faisons table rase
Foule esclave, debout, debout
Le monde va changer de base
Nous ne sommes rien, soyons tout

Stand up, damned of the Earth
Stand up, prisoners of starvation
Reason thunders in its volcano
This is the eruption of the end.
Of the past let us make a clean slate
Enslaved masses, stand up, stand up.
The world is about to change its foundation
We are nothing, let us be all.

Chorus (×2)
 |: C'est la lutte finale

  Groupons-nous, et demain
  L'Internationale

  Sera le genre humain :|
 |: This is the final struggle

  Let us group together, and tomorrow
  The Internationale

  Will be the human race. :|
Second (2nd) stanza

Il n'est pas de sauveurs suprêmes
Ni Dieu, ni César, ni tribun
Producteurs, sauvons-nous nous-mêmes
Décrétons le salut commun
Pour que le voleur rende gorge
Pour tirer l'esprit du cachot
Soufflons nous-mêmes notre forge
Battons le fer quand il est chaud

There are no supreme saviours
Neither God, nor Caesar, nor tribune.
Producers, let us save ourselves,
Decree the common salvation.
So that the thief expires,
So that the spirit be pulled from its prison,
Let us fan our forge ourselves
Strike the iron while it is hot.

Chorus (×2)
Third (3rd) stanza

L'État comprime et la loi triche
L'impôt saigne le malheureux
Nul devoir ne s'impose au riche
Le droit du pauvre est un mot creux
C'est assez, languir en tutelle
L'égalité veut d'autres lois
Pas de droits sans devoirs dit-elle
Égaux, pas de devoirs sans droits

The State oppresses and the law cheats.
Tax bleeds the unfortunate.
No duty is imposed on the rich;
The riğts of the poor is an empty phrase.
Enouğf languishing in custody!
Equality wants other laws:
No riğts without duties, she says,
Equally, no duties without riğts.

Chorus (×2)
Fourth (4th) stanza

Hideux dans leur apothéose
Les rois de la mine et du rail
Ont-ils jamais fait autre chose
Que dévaliser le travail ?
Dans les coffres-forts de la bande
Ce qu'il a créé s'est fondu
En décrétant qu'on le lui rende
Le peuple ne veut que son dû.

Hideous in their apotheosis
The kings of the mine and of the rail.
Have they ever done anything other
Than steal work?
Inside the safeboxes of the gang,
What work had created melted.
By ordering that they give it back,
The people want only their due.

Chorus (×2)
Fifth (5th) stanza

Les rois nous saoulaient de fumées
Paix entre nous, guerre aux tyrans
Appliquons la grève aux armées
Crosse en l'air, et rompons les rangs
S'ils s'obstinent, ces cannibales
À faire de nous des héros
Ils sauront bientôt que nos balles
Sont pour nos propres généraux

The kings made us drunk with fumes,
Peace among us, war to the tyrants!
Let the armies go on strike,
Stocks in the air, and break ranks.
If they insist, these cannibals
On making heroes of us,
They will know soon that our bullets
Are for our own generals.

Chorus (×2)
Sixth (6th) stanza

Ouvriers, paysans, nous sommes
Le grand parti des travailleurs
La terre n'appartient qu'aux hommes
L'oisif ira loger ailleurs
Combien de nos chairs se repaissent
Mais si les corbeaux, les vautours
Un de ces matins disparaissent
Le soleil brillera toujours.

Workers, peasants, we are
The great party of labourers.
The earth belongs only to men;
The idle will go to reside elsewhere.
How much of our flesh have they consumed?
But if these ravens, these vultures
Disappear one of these days,
The sun will still shine forever.

First (1st) stanza

Вставай, проклятьем заклеймённый,
Весь мир голодных и рабов!
Кипит наш разум возмущённый
И в смертный бой вести готов.
Весь мир насилья мы разрушим
До основанья, а затем
Мы наш, мы новый мир построим, —
Кто был ничем, тот станет всем.

Vstavay, proklyat′yem zakleymyonny,
Ves′ mir golodnykh i rabov!
Kipit nash razum vozmushchyonnyy
I v smertnyy boy vesti gotov.
Ves′ mir nasil′ya my razrushim
Do osnovan′ya, a zatem
My nash, my novyy mir postroim, —
Kto byl nichem, tot stanet vsem.

Stand up, ones who are branded by the curse,
All the world's starving and enslaved!
Our outraged minds are boiling,
Ready to lead us into a deadly fight.
We will destroy this world of violence
Down to the foundations, and then
We will build our new world.
He who was nothing will become everything!

Chorus (×2)

Это есть наш последний
И решительный бой;
С Интернационалом
Воспрянет род людской!

Eto yest nash posledniy
I reshitel′nyy boy;
S Internatsionalom

This is our final
and decisive battle;
With the Internationale
humanity will rise up!

Second (2nd) stanza

Никто не даст нам избавленья:
Ни бог, ни царь и не герой!
Добьёмся мы освобожденья
Своею собственной рукой.
Чтоб свергнуть гнёт рукой умелой,
Отвоевать своё добро, —
Вздувайте горн и куйте смело,
Пока железо горячо!

Nikto ne dast nam izbavlen′ya:
Ni bog, ni tsar′ i ne geroy!
Dob′yomsya my osvobozhden′ya
Svoyeyu sobstvennoy rukoy.
Chtob svergnut′ gnyot rukoy umeloy,
Otvoyevat′ svoyo dobro, —
Vzduvayte gorn i kuyte smelo,
Poka zhelezo goryacho!

No one will grant us deliverance,
Not god, nor tsar, nor hero.
We will win our liberation,
With our very own hands.
To throw down oppression with a skilled hand,
To take back what is ours —
Fire-up the furnace and hammer boldly,
while the iron is still hot!

Chorus (×2)

Это есть наш последний
И решительный бой;

Third (3rd) stanza

Довольно кровь сосать, вампиры,
Тюрьмой, налогом, нищетой!
У вас — вся власть, все блага мира,
А наше право — звук пустой !
Мы жизнь построим по-иному —
И вот наш лозунг боевой:
Вся власть народу трудовому!
А дармоедов всех долой!

Dovol′no krov′ sosat′, vampiry,
Tyur′moy, nalogom, nishchetoy!
U vas — vsya vlast′, vse blaga mira,
A nashe pravo — zvuk pustoy!
My zhizn′ postroim po-inomu —
I vot nash lozung boyevoy:
Vsya vlast′ narodu trudovomu!
A darmoyedov vsekh doloy!

You've sucked enough of our blood, you vampires,
With prison, taxes and poverty!
You have all the power, all the blessings of the world,
And our rights are but an empty sound!
We'll make our own lives in a different way —
And here is our battle cry:
All the power to the people of labour!
And away with all the parasites!

Chorus (×2)

Это есть наш последний
И решительный бой;
С Интернационалом

Fourth (4th) stanza

Презренны вы в своём богатстве,
Угля и стали короли!
Вы ваши троны, тунеядцы,
На наших спинах возвели.
Заводы, фабрики, палаты —
Всё нашим создано трудом.
Пора! Мы требуем возврата
Того, что взято грабежом.

Prezrenny vy v svoyom bogatstve,
Uglya i stali koroli!
Vy vashi trony, tuneyadtsy,
Na nashikh spinakh vozveli.
Zavody, fabriki, palaty —
Vsyo nashim sozdano trudom.
Pora! My trebuyem vozvrata
Togo, chto vzyato grabezhom.

Contemptible you are in your wealth,
You kings of coal and steel!
You had your thrones, parasites,
At our backs erected.
All the factories, all the chambers —
All were made by our hands.
It's time! We demand the return
Of that which was stolen from us.

Chorus (×2)

Это есть наш последний

Fifth (5th) stanza

Довольно королям в угоду
Дурманить нас в чаду войны!
Война тиранам! Мир Народу!
Бастуйте, армии сыны!
Когда ж тираны нас заставят
В бою геройски пасть за них —
Убийцы, в вас тогда направим
Мы жерла пушек боевых!

Dovol′no korolyam v ugodu
Durmanit′ nas v chadu voyny!
Voyna tiranam! Mir Narodu!
Bastuyte, armii syny!
Kogda zh tirany nas zastavyat
V boyu geroyski past′ za nikh —
Ubiytsy, v vas togda napravim
my zherla pushek boyevykh!

Enough of the will of kings
Stupefying us into the haze of war!
War to the tyrants! Peace to the people!
Go on strike, sons of the army!
And if the tyrants tell us
To fall heroically in battle for them —
Then, murderers, we will point
The muzzles of our cannons at you!

Chorus (×2)

Это есть наш последний
И решительный бой;
С Интернационалом

Sixth (6th) stanza

Лишь мы, работники всемирной
Великой армии труда,
Владеть землёй имеем право,
Но паразиты — никогда!
И если гром великий грянет
Над сворой псов и палачей, —
Для нас всё так же солнце станет
Сиять огнём своих лучей.

Lish′ my, rabotniki vsemirnoy
Velikoy armii truda,
Vladet′ zemlyoy imeyem pravo,
No parazity — nikogda!
I yesli grom velikiy gryanet
Nad svoroy psov i palachey, —
Dlya nas vsyo tak zhe solntse stanet
siyat′ ognyom svoikh luchey.

Only we, the workers of the worldwide
Great army of labour,
Have the right to own the land,
But the parasites — never!
And if the great thunder rolls
Over the pack of dogs and executioners,
For us, the sun will forever
Shine on with its fiery beams.

Chorus (×2)

Это есть наш последний
И решительный бой;
С Интернационалом

Eto yest nash posledniy
I reshitel′nyy boy;

First (1st) stanza

Arise, ye prisoners of starvation!
Arise, ye wretched of the earth!
For justice thunders condemnation:
A better world's in birth!
No more tradition's chains shall bind us;
Arise, ye slaves, no more in thrall!
The earth shall rise on new foundations:
We have been nouğt, we shall be all!

Tis the final conflict;
Let each stand in their place.

Second (2nd) stanza

We want no condescending saviors
To rule us from the judgment halls;
We workers askn't for their favors;
Let us consult for all.
And if those cannibals keep trying,
To sacrifice us to their kind,
They too shall hear the bullets flying,
We'll shoot the generals that they bind.

Chorus (×2)

Tis the final conflict;

Third (3rd) stanza

Toilers from shops and fields united,
The union of all we who work:
The earth belongs to us, the workers,
No room here for the shirk.
How many on our flesh have fattened!
But if the noisome birds of prey
Shall vanish from the sky some morning,
The blesséd sunliğt still will stay.

Chorus (×2)

Tis the final conflict;
Let each stand in their place.
The Internationale
Unites the human race!
