Almost Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Translation | PDF BOOK



Translation projects naturally involve translators. There is a difference between translators and interpreters. 

Translation is the operation which consists in rendering a written source text to a written target text that retains elements of information, form, functionality, and tone abiding by agreed-on specifications. Simply put, translators write while interpreters speak. 

Clearly, this little book does not contain everything there is to know about the translation of documents. Our focus is on the business side of translation. 

Some aspects of the technical side of translation that we did not include are:   

  • how to internationalize documents, 
  • software localization and other types of localization, 
  • terminology research and management, 
  • technical standards such as TMX, TBX, and XLIFF, 
  • when to use and not to use machine translation.
