Translating from Bulgarian to English is usually very simple, especially when you have an experienced translator from Tomedes. Yet, when you must translate common sayings figuratively it gets very comical unless the translator tweaks the meaning. Here are some examples of the most famous Bulgarian phrases used in everyday life that are funny when translated to English.
(To call someone dumb as a rock.)
(Expresses a high level of doubt. Meaning that grandmothers usually don’t play with kites.)
(This time someone is making an exception by letting somebody go.)
(Something unexpected has occurred; one understands everything exactly, but can’t do anything to improve a situation.)
(What have you been doing lately?)
(Don’t be so cool in my presence.)
(Someone craves sleep and can’t even keep their eyes open.)
