We clearly hear: "Sie" ist meine Frau. So it cannot be "he".KateR wrote: ↑Wed Jun 13, 2018 4:37 pmThank you, one and all! Very helpful.
Ah. I thought he was saying "And he is my wife," but google translate kept saying that "sie" is "you," so I thought maybe he was deliberately using the wrong pronoun to make it even more confusing. Does it matter, given the context and the fact that it's supposed to be wrong, if I use "he" or "she" or "you" there?JackGywer wrote: "Und sie ist meine Frau".........he points to the man next to him.
"And she is my wife", very funny
Thank you so much, everyone! I can get back to the updates now.
"Sie" has two possible translations to English. One is just "she" which is meant in this case.
The other one is like the French "vous". You use it instead of "du" (you) if you are not familiar with the person you talk to.
That's why Google says it means "you".
But if that would be the case, Mac would say: "You is my wife". "She is my wife" makes much more sense, especially because he talks to the Police or soldiers and not to this guy next to him.
Hope I could express what I mean.
Conclusion: Translate it as "She is my wife."
