Here are the quotations Nov 5, 2012

Here are the quotations:

German version in the German catalogue runs p. 50-60 (page number of quotation in German vesion in brackets)

quasi-mechanische Anordnung, wie man sie in der Systematik der Archive findet.“ (59)

„Fotosammlungen“ = central concept: theoretically simply „photo collections“, but „collections of photographs“ etc. also possible

„Aufzeichnung komplexer historischer Prozesse, das Sammeln von Fakten und das Auflisten von chronologischen Abfolgen und zeitlichen Kontinuitäten […] der ursprünglichen Forderung der Avantgarde nach Unmittelbarkeit, Shock und Brechung zutiefst [widersprechen]“ (50)

Thanks to anyone that can help,

snippet Nov 6, 2012

“There can be little doubt that the recording of complex historical processes, the amassing of facts, the arrangement of events in chronological order and temporal continuity diametrically oppose the avant-garde objectives of immediacy, shock, and fragmentation, even if these records are merely imaginary structures....”

Best practice? Nov 6, 2012

Dear Johanna,

Thank you very much. I'm impressed.

Any tips for searching Google Books?

I had found and searched the catalogue at Google Books using a couple of sure-hit translations for sets of 3-4 words and got no results.
Nothing from the actual text provided by you shows up when searching specifically in the book, either.

Does the option "Try this search over all volumes" generally turn up better results (despite the larger number of f

Does the option "Try this search over all volumes" generally turn up better results (despite the larger number of false hits)?

Do you use other full-text sources (scribd etc.)?

Sincerely,

Hi Michael,

I used various search parameters, including Buchloh + "complex historical processes"; once I had found the first snippet, I used strings from that excerpt which then led me to the second snippet and the rest of the sentence.

But maybe my location (Canada) has sth to do with the results google brings up?

One of my daughters has access to the local university library catalogue - I've asked her to check for the book there and will let you know

thanks but not necessary Nov 6, 2012

Hello Johanna,

Thanks, but the project is already done. I was able to find all of the other quotations in the essay and explained the problem with the one Buchloh quotation to my client.
As a translator, it bothers me to know that those 6-7 words aren't exactly right, but she needs to get things to the printer and that had priority in this case.

I'm in Berlin, so I can generally find just about anything on paper if I can't find it in the Internet. In this case, h

I'm in Berlin, so I can generally find just about anything on paper if I can't find it in the Internet. In this case, however, the German and English versions were published more or less simultaneously, so there was no reason for any German library to buy an English copy.

Sincerely,
Michael
