Professional practices Bea Hyde-Owens endorses's Professional Guidelines.

a linguist with aspirations to work on language documentation and
revitalisation within endangered language communities, I am in awe of language
in all its manifestations and the complexity and ingenuity of linguistic
structures. As such, I consider translation not as the replacement of one word
for another, but as an art form through which one adapts cultural peculiarities
for the target readership while preserving the subtleties and humour of the
original text. Having
traveled a great deal and lived abroad, I have ties to
people from divers cultural, religious and economic backgrounds. This
experience has given me a deep understanding of linguistic variation across
social strata within a linguistic community. I have translated texts for
political groups, creatives and advertisers, which has sharpened my awareness
of stylistic variation in translation and editing.
