    Default Help translate my rap into French!

    Hello,
    I am trying to translate a rap i wrote into french. I have it in english and portuguese already.
    The hard part is obviously so it still rhymes but you have complete liberity to change and alter the lines as long as a similar idea is conveyed.
    Thanks a lot:

    I will never give up I will never give in
    I will keep on fighting til this battle I win
    you can say that i wonít but you donít know where iíve been
    pull the sword from this stone build a warrior within


    Iím not about to allow a lot of doubt to bring me down
    dont ever count me out cause Iímma mount up from the ground
    Iíve not forgot not gon stop till Iím atop the clouds
    an astronaut thatís got a shot to turn his world around

    Truth is that Iím choosing all the bruises and
    removing all excuses as Iím moving into this future
    like Iím superhuman

    Is the first part.
    Thanks again!

    Hi! Are you still working on this?

    Just as a tip, a lot of French verbs endings rhyme: infinitive forms (especially those ending with -er and -ir), same for past participles (respectively -ť and -i), future tenses... So that would be an easy trick to make basically every line rhyme.

    However, I would have a hard time making this sound good, I think you'd better work with a French rapper? or at list listen to a lot of French rap if you have some notions. But I can still try to help you if you want.

    For example:
    I will never give up I will never give in
    A lot of verbs would fit and rhyme: abandonner, cťder, capituler, succomber, renoncer... rhyme with a lot of past participles like gagnť, endurť... retirer l'ťpťe du rocher, guerrier... they all sound like [e].
    or future tense: abandonnerai, cťderai etc. all rhyme with jamais, vrai... and sound like [ɛ] (or [ɛː] I'm not sure)

    Good luck!
