Good morning to everybody,

my name is Laura and i'm studying Foreign Languages at the Catholic University in Milan, Italy.

I'm working on a project which analyses Instruction manuals for lamps as a text type, so their typical aspects, principles of comprensibility and usability for the user, and so on...

I am also analysing the strategies that a translator put into work while translating the instruction from Italian into German, and, above all, the main difficulties that he/ she can face while doing this work...
It would also be interesting to know why the translator chooses to traslate a technical term in a way instead of another, for example...

It would be vey grateful if anybody coul help me giving me some piece of advice or reporting his/her own experience with some examples...It would be a great hel for my project...

I would like to thank you in advance for your attention,
