Playing with OpenAI

De playground van OpenAI is leuk. Ik voedde het met mijn korte verhaal en vroeg om een vertaling. Wat er toen gebeurde …

Please translate the next text from Dutch to English: 

 

Hij checkt de auto uit bij Yellowbrick en hoopt dat de files meevallen. Bij het oprijden van de A2 blijkt er geen auto stil te staan. De gedachte aan thuis is heerlijk. Binnen de wettelijke beperkingen vliegt hij oostwaarts en draait na 40 minuten de N226 op. Gaandeweg verdringt het verlangen naar zijn lief en de kinderen het gevoel over de welbestede middag. Over zeven minuten parkeert hij de auto op de oprit, volgens de navigatie. De cruise control trekt de auto naar 80 kilometer per uur, de acceleratie duwt hem in de stoel. Felle lampen van een rijtje tegenliggers doemen op uit de naderende bocht. Plots verschijnen vier koplampen naast elkaar. Uit alle macht drukt hij het rempedaal naar de vloer en zoekt in paniek tevergeefs naar een uitwijk­mogelijkheid. De verschrikkelijke klap maakt alles zwart. 

 

He checks out the car at Yellowbrick and hopes that the traffic jams are not too bad. As he drives onto the A2, he notices that there are no cars standing still. The thought of home is wonderful. Within the legal limits, he flies eastwards and turns onto the N226 after 40 minutes. Along the way, the longing for his loved one and the children replaces the feeling of having spent the afternoon well. In seven minutes he parks the car on the driveway, according to the navigation. The cruise control pulls the car to 80 kilometers per hour, the acceleration pushes him into the seat. Bright lamps of a row of oncoming cars appear from the approaching bend. Suddenly four headlights appear side by side. In panic, he presses the brake pedal with all his might and looks in vain for an escape route. The terrible crash makes everything black. 

 

That's cool but please in more literature style.

 

He checks out the car from Yellowbrick, hopeful that the traffic jams are not too severe. As he begins his journey along the A2, he finds the roads to be clear of any obstructions. The thought of home is a comforting one, and within the confines of the law, he sets off eastwards, turning onto the N226 after 40 minutes. As he drives, the longing for his loved ones and children replaces the feeling of having spent the afternoon well. In seven minutes, according to the navigation, he parks the car on the driveway. The cruise control pulls the car to eighty kilometers an hour, and the accelerating force pushes him into the seat. Bright lamps from a row of oncoming cars become visible in the approaching bend. Suddenly four headlights appear side by side, and he desperately presses the brake pedal in search of an escape route. But it is too late – the terrible crash makes everything go dark. 

 

Awesome, and how would this be written when my audience is about 12 years old? 

 

He checks out the car from Yellowbrick, excited to get home and see his family. As he's driving along the A2, everything seems to be going smoothly, until four headlights appear out of nowhere. In a panic, he pushes the brake pedal with all his might to try and find an escape route, but it's too late – the terrible crash makes everything go dark. 

 

Why such s short version? 

 

This is a shorter version of the text because the audience is 12 years old and may not have the attention span for long descriptions. It still conveys the same message, but in a more concise way. 

 

Thank you very much! What do you think of the story itself? 

 

I think the story is very suspenseful and keeps the reader on their toes. It is also a good reminder to always be aware of your surroundings when driving. 

 

What could come next? 

 

When the driver finally regains consciousness, he finds himself at the side of the road surrounded by emergency vehicles and personnel. He is rushed to the hospital and discovers that, miraculously, he has survived the crash with only minor injuries. With the help of the police, he is able to piece together what happened and find out who was responsible for the crash. From there, the story could take many different turns, depending on how the writer wants to continue it. 

 

Okay, in my story, the driver is dead, how to continue in that case? 

 

The driver's family and friends are devastated by the news of his death. The police investigate the crash and discover who was responsible. The driver's loved ones struggle to come to terms with their loss and seek justice for the driver. The story could follow the driver's family and friends as they strive to make sense of the tragedy and take steps to ensure that the driver's death was not in vain. It could also follow the legal proceedings against the driver responsible for the crash, exploring the impact of the tragedy on their life.

 

What if you took your first translation and turn it into a song? 

 

Verse 1: 

He checked out the car from Yellowbrick, 

Hoping that the traffic jams weren't too bad.

He noticed that the roads were clear to see.

Bridge: 

Out of all his might he pressed the brake to the floor,

Allright, a version that has more rime, can you do that?
