The Art of Translation

The Art of Translation

Marie Louise Schoondergang: "Translating is an art as well as a craft. In most cases, a literal translation cannot convey the essence of the original text. Has the proper context been taken into consideration to help the reader understand what was meant in the original? How do you translate a concept that does not exist in the target language or culture? And is the translator able to produce a text that is not only true to the original but also interesting to read? Craftsmanship, creativity and a passion for language are the only solutions to these and other translation problems."
