Watching America

This is the name of a web site that translates newspapers from around the world into english to show the way people talk about the United States in their foreign tongue. (Via The Philadelphia Inquirer).

Browsing into the web site I came across this article by Tunis Hebdo and which was translated into english.

It's funny because it seems to me the English version is much more sarcastic. Eventhough the wording is rather faithful to the original text, the tone is different. I did not sense the same excess of irony reading the article in French..
