Bus/Financial - Environment & Ecology / ecology
|Russian term or phrase: экологическая политика|
|сначала я перевела это как environmental policy - и чувствовала себя прекрасно, пока это словосочетание не стало постоянно сталкиваться с "загрязнением окр. среды", т.е. environmental pollution. получается некрсиво. |
и вопрос, собственно, таков: как по-другому можно хорошо перевести "экологическую политику" - или какие у environmental pollution бывают такие же расхожие синонимы?
There is an ecological policy, see below

but from experience I would have translated it as Environmental Policy, which is common worldwide. I believe, and this is purely my feelings, that since there is no one-word adjective in Russian (to my knowledge)for environmental (or environment in the sense of conditions surrounding a living organism), the word "ekologicheskii" is often used for environmental - see E-R Ecological Dictionary, under environmental. Okruzhayushchaya sreda, of course, is environment, but you can't make an adjective out of it, consequently ekologicheskii is used. At least this is the conclusion I came to after translating the Russian journal "Ekologiya" for years. I hope this somewhat solves your problem.

|thank you, guys!.. by the way, i checked 'environmental policy' - they DO use it as a common expression... just to say it's not a mistake, though i understand 'pollution' speaks for itself already... anyway, thanks for the comments and references and all! :) |
