» Toward defining translation in relation to its transparency
By Monica Zhekov | Published 08/2/2013 | Translation Theory | Recommendation:
What does define a good translation and what norms and standards should apply to it has been the subject of many debates in conferences and specialised journals in translation studies. Should a translation read fluent in a foreign culture other than the one of the target readership, and if so what is to be compromised and to what extend? In order to get a valuable insight on this matter I propose an analysis of the transparency as a fundamental characteristic for the fluent and readable translation. Furthermore I will examine the translation transparency in regard to its fluency and readability according to three learned theorists, namely, Perrot d’Ablancourt, Friedrich Schleiermacher and Antoine Berman. Finally, I will attempt to define the fluent and readable translation in light of the contemporary translation theories.

» The Words from the Gap II: De-characterizing or Enriching?
By Marcia Pinheiro | Published 06/23/2017 | Translation Theory | Not yet recommended
There are world objects that seem to remain unnoticed by certain cultures and peoples. Those would probably need to import alien sigmatoids, coming from other languages and cultures, in order to correctly identify those world objects, in order to correctly connect to them. The whole concern is then with how much that de-characterizes a culture or a people. Besides, this de-characterization does not have to be something bad; it might actually be a good thing for human kind as a whole, so that this topic might be something that fits inside of strategic studies, therefore studies about war, and those are perhaps the most valued in modernity.
