» Translation and the Fly in the Glass of Milk
By Adriana Adarve (X) | Published 04/1/2015 | Spanish , Translator Education | Recommendation:
It is disturbing and worrisome when documents translated into Spanish, for example, include initial capitals for all titles in their texts, contrary to codified Spanish practice, capital letters after colons, capitalized bullet lists, incorrect word order, just to mention a few of the issues carelessly imposed on the Spanish language nowadays. When this happens, linguistic standards are being eroded by the willy-nilly exchange of rules and codes from language to language.
» Translation, Transcreation and Cultural Diversity
By Adriana Adarve (X) | Published 03/15/2017 | Art of Translation and Interpreting | Recommendation:
What Is Transcreation? How does it relate to translation, and why is it important in cultural diversity. Transcreation is the cultural adaptation of text from one language into another, without deviating from its intent, tone, style and context, but refined in such a way that it reconciles specific cultural and linguistic factors. Transcreation is where creativity and refinement converge to allow a deeper connection between people of different cultural backgrounds.
