Help needed for translation from non-English to English
Hello, I have enjoyed Laura Lepisto's commentary a lot that was translated by Glam
a month ago. I'd like to thank you again Glam for your time and effort.
I have another set of Yuna's videos in non-English that I'd like to be
translated to English. Hopefully this allows people like me who can understand
only English to get a glimpse of how she is regarded in non-English speaking
countries. Also, the translated videos might serve future figure skating lovers
to get a chance to be introduced to one of the greatest.
I hope this doesn't cause too much trouble for the kindhearted person who
is willing to help. I would appreciate all your help. And thank you in advance.

On a side note, if you want to help, would you please put some timestamps
(like minute and second) in your translation. This is for the case
your translation is added to the video as subtitles. Thank you again!!!
If you still try some more, here you go.

Here's my translation of Kim's SP with Italian commentary (2 on your list). I hope it will be useful.
00:02-00:38 Kim Yu-na, the Olympic champion, is coming back after a break: she didn't compete at World Championship for nearly 24 months. During this season she entered some Senior B competitions, last December she won at Dortmund , where she showed her programs: let's see her Worlds comeback short program, “The Kiss of the Vampire”.
00:50- 01:06 She starts with a triple lutz-triple toeloop combination, a fabulous one, it hasn't got any worse since when Kim dominated world stage, some time ago.
01:12-01:24 Here is the step precending her triple flip, that gave her some small problems, not with the flow out or overall quality of the jump, but with the taking-off edge.
01:27-01:51 She wasn't perfect in entering her flying camel, either, she probably lost some points: actually, you have to reach your basic camel position within two turns since the landing to make the feature count.
01:52-01:57 Then, double axel, so three perfect jump elements as for the landing.
02:09-02:18 Level 3 Layback spin, but this one was intended to be a level 3.
02:54-03:32 Her last element is a combination spin; anyway, a helluva comeback, even if she was probably expecting some points more, as she stated after the competition. She wasn't happy about losing a level in her flying camel spin, but honestly – we saw many videos these days - she wasn't perfect on it; as for her layback spin, honestly she couldn't have got a level four because she's missing a feature.
03:33-04:14 Yes, her layback spin was intended to get level 3, and level 3 it got; her flying camel was intended to get level 4, but in my opinion her landing wasn't perfect, so she hit camel position some turns later, and therefore lost a feature. It was a pardonable error, not a gross nor a very noticeable one, nonetheless it was a mistake, so it was a reasonable call by the technical panel.
04:15-04:27 Her performance is excellent, first and foremost this combination, entered with incredible speed, that will get her a lot of positive GOEs.
04:28-05:17 On the other hand, we must say that her flip got wrong edge calls even before her sabbatical, even though it's not an outside nor a proper inside edge: it's more a flat edge, and according to new rules a wrong one, as it was called. Old rules where more lenient, but Kim got some edge calls even under those, so it was nearly inavoidable. Other than that, judges may give it a good evaluation, because the jump had great quality, so much speed going in and out of it, good air position and preceding steps.
05:18-05:42 Her combination, instead, had great speed but it was obtained without transitions, many crossovers preceding it, and this is true both for her short and long program. To speak frankly, she's always done that before her lutz, even with the solo lutz in her long program: it's an acceptable choice.
05:43-06:12 Furthermore, that problem with the flip is well-known to Kim's staff, because she used to do triple flip-triple toeloop combinations, then she switched to lutz combinations in order to preserve the base value: it was some years ago. Her score is remarkable: as for the components, she got more than 33.18 only once. Will it be enough? This season Asada scored more than 70 points, but with a ratified triple axel.
Thank you, bartlebooth
