NOTIS’ Translation Division presents

The Importance of Biblical References for Translators and Interpreters

Presented by: Dmitry Buzadzhi

What is it about? The Bible is a seminal text in the Christian culture, whose language, concepts, and imagery are inextricably woven into the fabric of many modern languages, including English and Russian. Biblical quotes and allusions are frequent in a wide variety of non-religious texts ranging from fiction to journalism and political speeches. What makes this situation more challenging for translators and interpreters is that biblical references may work differently in different languages, and rendering one with its direct biblical counterpart in the target language is not always the best strategy. The speaker will talk about some of the most prominent biblical quotations in English and discuss related translation asymmetries and strategies in English-Russian translation and interpretation. Presented in English. 

This is a recorded workshop reformatted into an on-demand workshop.
