titanic = 'like a giant'
mammoth = 'like a giant'
monster = 'like a giant' (also 'like a monster')

「Colossal」を翻訳

Q: colossal は 英語 (アメリカ) で何と言いますか?

Q: I'm ran after colossal tasks I gotta do. は 英語 (イギリス) で何と言いますか?
A: Your English is good. Don't be daft. : )

If something was chasing you (past tense) you would say "it was running after me" or "it ran after me", but not "I was ran after."

But in English we don't say we are being chased by work, we might say:

"I've got an enormous backlog of work piling up."

Work tends to "pile up" and we call it a "backlog".

"I've got a massive pile of work to do." "The work just keeps piling up."

If it's worrying you, you could say:

"All those unfinished jobs are preying on my mind."

We do use "chase" when somebody wants the work done. "The boss keeps chasing me for all those jobs that have piled up!"

We could also say "I'm being run ragged by my boss." In this usage "ragged" is pronounced like ラゲド, so we pronounce the last syllable.

(BTW, "colossal" is a bit strong for just a backlog of work, it would normally be something bigger. For work or jobs I would say "enormous", "massive", "huge"... something like that.)

EDIT I added a few bits to make it clearer. : )
