...misconception is the idea that translators and interpreters do the same thing. In fact, translation and interpretation are very different. Translation revolves around the written word: if you have a document such as an international contract, marketing brochure, book, manual, or survey that needs to be communicated in another language, you need a translator. Interpretation involves oral communication. If you have an investor visiting from Japan, a diplomat from Brazil, or a Korean immigrant in a court trial, you need an interpreter to interpret the spoken word. There are two types of interpretation: simultaneous and consecutive. Simultaneous interpreters anticipate what the speaker is going to say, and interpret at the same time as the speaker is speaking. Less taxing is consecutive interpretation, when an interpreter waits until the speaker has finished a sentence or phrase before conveying that message to the audience's target language. On the surface, the difference between interpreting and translation is the mode of expression. Interpreters deal with spoken language and translate orally, while translators deal with written text, transforming the source text into a comprehensible and equivalent target text. Both interpreting and translation presuppose a love of language and deep knowledge of more than one language. However, the differences in the training, skills, and talents needed for each job are vast. The key skill of a good translator is the ability to write......

...Children‟s Literature Translation (ChLT). Attempting an overview from the years when ChLT was much ignored in the academic and non-academic world to the years that attention is paid to ChLT as a scientific field in its own right, the present paper illustrates issues that have generated intense and ongoing discussions. Issues such as the missionary role of ChLT, the theoretical framework of ChLT, the translator‟s invisibility, low status, profile and royalties, translatability vs. untranslatability, ideology, censorship, manipulation, and ambivalence are visited in this paper. These issues have had a deep impact on key ChLT actors, processes, and products: the child-reader, the translator, the translated text, the translation process, the author, the publisher, etc. The present text is a modest attempt to join efforts with the international community of scholars, translators, authors, children readers, publishers and other parties with an interest in ChLT, so as for the field to be given its merit in Translation, Comparative, Literary and Interdisciplinary Studies and for the translator –who had for long been much invisible and undervalued –to gain the place s/he deserves in history and society. 1. Introductory note It is widely accepted that Children‟s Literature Translation (ChLT) is an area that is relatively novel within Translation Studies (TS) (O‟ Connel, 2005; Pinsent, 2006; Thomson-Wolgemuth, 2009; 2006; 1998; Lathey, 2010; 2006; etc.).

Flynn Dr. L. Van Doorslaer ACADEMIEJAAR 2012-2013 Abstract Dans ce rapport, la qualité de la traduction automatique de la terminologie médicale sur le VIH sera étudiée via Google Translate. D’abord, un résumé des ouvrages consultés pour l’étude est présenté , ensuite la question centrale de l’étude est esquissée ensemble avec la méthodologie appliquée. Dans l’analyse, differents extraits français d’une brochure traduite vers le néerlandais par le service de traduction sont utilisés. Ce sont ces extraits qui sont comparés avec le vrai texte néerlandais. Le procédé se fait aussi à l’inverse où Google Translate traduit des extraits néerlandais vers le français, qui sont comparés avec le vrai texte français. Il ressort de cette analyse que la qualité de la traduction automatique est surprenante. L’analyse est approfondie d’une approche quantitative et qualitative. On peut conclure qu’il y a beaucoup de traductions correctes et qu’on ne peut pas distinguer quelle direction de traduction (néerlandais-français ou français-néerlandais) est la meilleure.

Wireless Headset Translator

...Wireless headset translator Two sources that were used in order to come up with our new invention were the ITA database and UNWTO (world tourism organization network). Taking a look at these sources, we found that the rate of tourism increases each year. To take advantage of this growing market, we came up with a new invention, which allows consumers to use it if ever they cannot speak the language of the foreign country there currently in. These sources made us realize how much money goes into travelling each year. On average, people in today’s society speak up to five different languages and with hundreds of different languages in the world; we believe that this product will be beneficial. As seen in the sources presented every yearly quartile accretion at least 3% of tourists in Canada alone. Our idea starts off with an earpiece that has a microphone attached to it. Similar to a Bluetooth “office headset”, our product will have a slim, lightweight design which is portable and easy to carry with you. The way this product works is very simple and effective. When the consumer speaks his language that he is most confortable with into the microphone, the headset picks up the signal and translates it to the set language. The way you set your language is very simple. The technology used in this product is no different then the Bluetooth technology that one would use to connect his/her phone to the car.

Translocating the Subject

...Synopsis of the Proposed Dissertation Translocating the Subject The Re- Sited Structures of O. V.

Types of Friends In a non-certified translation the translator is sometimes entitled to give a personal style and tone to the text, to make it more appropriate for the target audience. Notarized translations often must be an exact translation of the source and must always include a clause from the certifier together with a round seal affixed which only Notarized Court translators may use, and must be certified by the translators signature, in order to be accepted by the courts and the authorities. Descriptions, such as "official translation", "Certifying the correctness of the translation", "Certifying word-by-word compliance of the translation", or similar phrases are not officially recognized certification clauses according to applicable laws.

...If you are considering starting a small business, you may be trying to sort out the different types of businesses and wondering which type is best for you. Each type is best for a specific purpose or situation, relating to taxes, liability, and your ability to control the profits and losses of the business. Sorting out the acronyms can be tricky, but this run-down will help. 1. Sole Proprietorships A sole proprietorship is a business operated by one individual; the business is considered part of the individual, not a separate entity. The business profits and losses are included on the individual's personal tax return, and the individual retains personal liability for the business debts and lawsuits. 2. Corporations A corporation is an entity which is separate from its owners. The corporation is formed under the laws of the state in which it is operating, with Articles of Incorporation. 3. Subchapter-S Corporations (S-Corporations) A subchapter-s corporation (or s-corp) is a corporation which has the benefits of limited liability of a corporation but which is taxed as a partnership, with the income or losses flowing through to the individual shareholders. 4. Professional Corporations (PCs) A professional corporation is a specific type of corporation for professionals, such as attorneys, doctors, architects, and accountants. In some states, these professionals can form a corporation, but with the distinction that each professional is still liable for his or her own......

Abstract— The aim of this project is to find out the problem areas in the translation done by Bing, suggest a method to improve the language translation and build a translator that supports accurate English to Hindi translation. The English input can be of textual, voice or image form and the Hindi output will be in the textual format.. With our research we aim to suggest a way to improve the already available popular translation engines. For this purpose we have used the method of hybrid machine translation. Hybrid machine translation is a method of machine translation that is characterized by the use of multiple machine translation approaches within a single machine translation system. The motivation for developing hybrid machine translation systems stems from the failure of any single technique to achieve a satisfactory level of accuracy. B. Statistical Machine Translation Statistical Machine Translation systems make use of computer algorithms that find out many possible ways of connecting smaller pieces of text together, in order to produce a best translation. Statistical Machine translation basically translates words and phrases along with their statistical likelihood. These are learned automatically from previously......
