» The Translator's Image in Sydney Pollack's Film The Interpreter (The Ethical Dilemma).
By OWatts | Published 05/11/2012 | Translation Theory | Recommendation:
In this article, I look at the translator as an object of representation in cinematography and explore the image of the interpreter in Sydney Pollack's film The Interpreter. First a general description of the plot of the film is given followed by the description of the image of the fictional interpreter, Silvia Broome. Then I dwell on the ethical problem present in the film and reflect on the question: Is it always possible for a translator to act at once professionally and ethically in the situation of conflict?

» Translation Industry Takeaways: ETA Projects & Character Limitations? Scenarios & Solutions
By Muhammad Said | Published 08/25/2019 | Business Issues | Recommendation:
I have been working in translation and localization for more than eleven years and I always believe that you should go the extra mile in such a competitive industry. Being a language service provider, especially a translator, you could deal with many subject-matters, including one or two of your fields of specializations, a couple of your working fields, and some of your fields of interests. Yet, you might receive some translation projects that require specific requirements and instructions.
