Having in mind the tendencies of the last several years in translation industry, I'd suggest a small change in the title - "Translating FOR food..."

Marius you are absolutely right! English can get away with saying ¨Translating food¨ without a preposition in between. Nevertheless, it is incorrect. In other languages, Spanish is my native one, it plainly does not make sense. You have to guess these kinds of phrases many times a day.
