Description
This webinar will use Arabic texts from various disciplines to present various strategies and resources that participants can use to improve their Arabic to English translations. Linguistic issues specific to Arabic and English, such as the use of the future vs. present tense, will be discussed, and translation suggestions will be presented. The concept of cultural transposition will also be discussed with solutions on how to handle instances of cultural references in Arabic texts. Diglossia will be discussed as it relates to translation, and a strategy will be presented to address diglossic elements participants may encounter. Other translation issues will be presented, including translation loss, the importance of the target text/audience and how to ensure your translation has maximum impact. In addition, the presenter will also discuss translation resources specific to the Arabic --> English language combination.
