Analogy of Energy Loss

The transfer of energy in any machine necessarily involves energy loss. This is not a theoretical anomaly, but simply a practical problem. To confront this issue, engineers strive to design more efficient machines wherein energy loss is reduced.

Slide3

Loss Reduction

The term translation loss is given to the incomplete replication / copying / reproduction / imitation / duplication / of the ST by the TT, i.e. the inevitable loss of textually and culturally relevant features.

Should translators agonize / worry/ suffer / struggle / over the loss or rather concentrate on reducing it?

Slide4

Loss of or in

Whereas energy loss is a diversion / deviation / of energy translation loss is not a loss

of

translation, but a loss

in

the translation process.

TL is a loss of textual effects.

The loss of textual effects cannot be quantified.

Who can tell how far should we go in reducing translation loss?

Slide5

A practical Analogy

Translators accept the concept of inevitable translation loss.

The TT should not (even in all important respects) be a replica of the ST.

Translation loss is not a theoretical anomaly.

Slide6

Realistic / Unrealistic

Should the translator concentrate on the aim of reducing translation loss?

Should the translator concentrate on the aim of seeking the ultimate TT?

Slide7

Forms and Levels of Translation Loss

Sounds level

Homonymy:

The relation between two words that are spelled the same way but differ in meaning or

the relation between two words that are pronounced the same way but differ in meaning

Slide8

Homonymy

True SL-TL homonymy rarely occurs due to pronunciation differences across languages.

Rhythm and intonation are usually different across languages.

Cow =

بقرة

sound different – significant

phonic (phonetic)

and

prosodic

translation loss.

relating to the rhythmic aspect of language or to the suprasegmental phonemes of pitch and stress and juncture and nasalization and voicing.

Slide9

Phonic-Prosodic Translation loss

In a veterinary textbook, phonic / prosodic loss does not likely matter.

If the ST word is part of an alliterative pattern in a literary text, or, worse, if it rhymes, the loss could be crucial / essential / decisive / all important.

How much cultural features remain?

Rebecca’s wife of the house master,

She’s pouring oil on vinegar,

She has a dozen hens, a free ranger,

And a nice sounding rooster.

Slide12

Denotative meanings level of individual words

Intifada =

انتفاضة

English-speakers pronounce the word differently Arabic-speakers pronounce

انتفاضة

The unique Arabic sound

ض

(phonic level loss)

Intifada sounds foreign in English despite the relative frequency of its use.

Using intifada introduce a foreign element losing the cultural neutrality of the ST expression.

Loss of Cultural Element

Religion =

دين

God =

الله

Islam =

اسلام
