Patch Magtanong straightforwardly expressed her opinion about the issue that her speech at Miss International 2019 was wrongly translated.
KAMI learned that a lot of pageant fans are accusing the interpreter at the said pageant of omitting keywords from the answer of the Filipina beauty queen.
Some of them even claimed that the mistranslated answer was the reason why the gorgeous model was not able to bring home the highly-coveted crown.
Through an interview with the media after the competition, Patch admitted that she was able to notice that the Japanese interpreter was struggling to translate her answer.
The registered lawyer from Bataan also revealed that there were really words from her much-talked-about speech that the interpreter failed to say to the judges.
“Naririnig ko nga. Medyo may alam kasi akong Japanese [terms]. Hinihintay ko yung mga words na sinabi ko… hindi niya sinabi…” she quipped.
“Si [Miss Indonesia], yun din ang interpreter niya… After no’n, ang sabi ko kay [Miss Indonesia], ‘Tama ba yung interpreter mo? Parang nag struggle yung interpreter ko.’ Sabi niya, ‘Let’s hope they have a transcript…’” she added.
