I follow a communicative approach in translation :Clarity and accuracy in communicating the original message are above literal and formal faithfulness to the original .So Ideational equivalence is far more important for me than formal equivalence ,the latter being welcome only provided it does not affect clarity of style and accuracy in meaning and does not result in any bizareness .At the same time ,I'm not for the "overcommunicative translation ",which concentrates exclusivesly on conveying the "general" message of the original and ignores its linguistic charecteristics as if one is outlining the sl text not translating it .There must always be a means between the two extremes ,and that is my guiding princple as a translator and the secret behind my success with different clients over the years.
