Translating culture-specific elements: problems, strategies and practical realities - Part 2
This webinar is the second part of a series of two webinars. This second webinar is aimed at familiarizing with more specific skills needed for the translation of culture-specific elements in non-literary translation. The whole training, i.e. the webinars and the self-paced session are based on the cognitive-cultural approach which relies on the aspect of cognition and culture, the two most important elements in understanding and translating culture-specific elements.
Part 2 will focus on a selected set of techniques and strategies that are most helpful in the process of translating culture-specific terms occurring in non-literary texts other than legal, official and scientific texts, such as texts translated for the media, newspaper agencies and advertising companies.
