Media and Literary Translation
Translating media content and literature requires an almost opposite skillset from the conceptual and terminological precision of technical, legal, medical, and scientific translations. We provide media and literary translations that convey the emotions, values, and creative impact of the original while maintaining the integrity of the work.
The objective of literary and media text is to highlight various aspects of human thought as well as communicate information to large numbers of people. These types of translations use factual language but also symbolism, puns, metaphors, and other creative features that target the human emotions, rather than solely trying to convey specific information.
In order to communicate the same intent as the original text, we use specialized translators that are experienced in media and literary translations. Translating the effect of the original author is a talent that requires translators who do not just “know” another language fluently, but who are great writers themselves.
Literary translation is responsible for the global popularity of some of the world’s most enduring literature. A good literary translation involves having a feel for the context of the written word and the ability to match the author’s original intent, while expertly wielding the different linguistic and stylistic features of the target language.
Our literary translators are skilled creative writers themselves, and are trained to understand the literary context of the work in question. This ensures that the translation contains not only your words and thoughts but also the way you want to convey your message. If you have a novel or other literary work to be translated, we will provide a meticulous, well-crafted solution.
