“PEOPLE WILL FORGET WHAT YOU SAID. THEY WILL FORGET WHAT YOU DID. BUT THEY WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT YOU MADE THEM FEEL.” - MAYA ANGELOU

Translation constitutes a bridge between two cultures, two civilizations each with its own concepts and cultural references. The translator's work therefore goes much further than simply transcribing words from a source language into a target language.

Culture



If this applies in all fields, this is especially the case for the translation of cultural contents, which aims precisely at disseminating typical cultural elements in another language.


Culture


For these contents, the translator must therefore be able to transfer cultural references from one language to another by finding the right balance between adaptation and differentiation, familiarity and local color.

Of course, the point of balance differs according to the nature of each medium, but also according to the target audience.
