FR-EN Translation Workshop
In FR – EN translation effective communications are CLEAR communications: contextualized, logical, essential, ambiguity-free and resonating. To express the meaning of the message in English in a linguistically and culturally relevant fashion, the professional translator often needs to distance him or herself from the French source text.
The webinar is divided into four 15-minute segments. In each, participants worked on an excerpt of a tricky source text, with the project’s brief. Key pitfalls, choices and solutions to ensure the text’s message comes through on target are discussed.
