    Hi!

    Pues veréis, como siempre, estaba traduciendo yo uno de mis capítulos, cuando me he encontrado con un par de frases que no acabo de captar:

    -You got the crap beaten out of you before you finally managed to beat this scum over here.

    ¡no la entiendo para nada!

    Si fueran tan amables de ayudarme.
    ¡Gracias de antemano! Thanks in advance!

    What exactly are you translating? Complete context would help a lot.

    "You got the crap beaten out of you before you finally managed to beat this scum over here."

    to get the crap beaten out of one - to be assaulted by someone (resulting in fairly severe injuries)

    scum - scumbag, creep, jerk, useless human being, etc.

    My translation is about a chapter of anime where there are fights and insults. (Bleach)

    And the context

    -Let go of Inoue! (Inoue is a girl)

    -Now that's funny!
    That's the kind of line a guy says when he thinks as long as his woman's safe, he can win!
    Well, check this out. (and he shows his tongue with a "5" written on it )
    That's my rank.
    Get it?
    You got the crap beaten out of you before you finally managed to beat this scum over here,
    and i'm stronger than him (I think that he speak about the last enemy of her opponent)

    Sorry for my poor english, and thankx a lot for your help!

    I thought it sounded like anime/manga!

    Mr. "5" is saying that his opponent (Ichigo?) already was injured quite a lot by his previous opponent. Even though he won, it was hard for him to do so. The speaker (his new opponent) is stronger, plus Ichigo is injured, so he can't possibly win.

    Yeah, he is Ichigo! :)
    I already know that would be the translation of the sentence
