Halò!
I tr*nsl*t* "Song of the Sea" into Scottish Gaelic.

My teacher always helps me, but he's busy.
So I need help.

Tha "Òran na mara" ceart. Tha coltas Èireannach air "Amhrán na farraige", ged a bhiodh "Òran na farraige" ceart ann an Gàidhlig na h-Alba cuideachd.

Ònm is corrrect. Anf looks Irish, although Ònf would be correct in Scottish Gaelic too.

Mòran taing airson do freagradh!
Mun an t-ainm.
Is "Amhrán na farraige" bun-ainm na òrain.
A-rèir mo mhuinear, tàr "fairge" fairge gharbh.
Ach is a' muir i am film ciùin.
Thank you for your reply!
About the title.
"Amhrán na farraige" is original title of the song.
According to my teacher, "fairge" evokes rough sea.
But the sea in the film was just calm and beautiful, not rough.
So I use "muir".

It is probably an Irish song then originally, where the word has a slightly different meaning. It is quite common that the same word in related languages can shift its meaning.

Beagan ceartachaidh:
Mun ainm (prepositional/dative case)
Is ... ainm tùsail an òrain (genitive case)

Sorry for late response. thank you so much.
By the way, there's important notification.
I changed the title into "Òran a' Chuain" because of avoiding duplication of the name.
I will continue to tr*nsl*t* "Song of the Sea".

Okay!
By the way, I'm tr*nsl*t*ng a quote a day.
Today's Quote: Tha sinn a’ dol a dh’faighinn do còta ‘s bidh thu fhearr.
The Original One: We're going to find your coat and you'll be better.
It appears in near the end. Ben's heart of wanting to save his sister's life touches our hearts.
Please correct quotes if there are grammatical errors etc.

Today's Quote: "Grad, faigh am bian. am bian maighdinn-ròin."
The Original One: "Quick, get the coat. the selkie coat."
The selkie song sends all the fairies home across the sea.

Mòran taing!
and Today's Quote is here!: "Innis dhuinn d’ aim, a mhaighdeann-ròin. ‘s seinnidh sinn d’ eachtradh."
The Original One: "Tell us your name, selkie. so we can sing of your adventure."
The three Daoine Sìthe want to entertain Saoirse the selkie before she sings her song to send them home.
