Download e-book for kindle: Oltre l'Occidente. Traduzione e alterità culturale by Rosa Maria Bollettieri Bosinelli,Elena Di Giovanni

By Rosa Maria Bollettieri Bosinelli,Elena Di Giovanni

Un’antologia che raccoglie alcuni tra i più interessanti e innovativi punti di vista sulla traduzione e sul rapporto fra traduzione e identità nazionale. Tema unificante: l’idea di traduzione come luogo di incontro e scontro fra tradition e come strumento di formazione e manipolazione delle identità. Dopo una prima sezione che raccoglie le voci di autori che vivono in Asia, Africa e the USA del Sud, l. a. seconda è dedicata al punto di vista di studiosi e scrittori importanti (tra cui Jhumpa Lahiri, Mona Baker, Albert Bensoussan e Emily Apter) che si trovano invece a vivere e lavorare a cavallo tra Oriente e Occidente. Facendosi forti di una posizione difficile ma anche privilegiata, questi ultimi hanno fatto proprie le teorie, le idee e i canoni di scrittura occidentali e li hanno adattati all’espressione delle peculiarità di chi vive in-between o è protagonista di una forma di alterità e differenza ancora sconosciuta al mondo occidentale.

I manuali di questa collana sono concepiti in line with un pubblico che può andare da insegnanti e studenti delle scuole medie e dell’università al lettore colto e curioso. Come orientamento immediato, ma non rigido valgono le varie sfumature dei colori di copertina.

Le sfumature di giallo identificano i compendi di carattere storico

Download e-book for kindle: Spanische Fremdenverkehrsbroschüren als Übersetzungsproblem by Katharina Bondarenko

By Katharina Bondarenko

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Dolmetschen / Übersetzen, observe: 1,3, Universität Hildesheim (Stiftung), Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Spanien zählt zu den beliebtesten Urlaubsländern weltweit und ist das populärste Reiseziel der deutschen Urlauber.
Fremdenverkehrsbroschüren sind bedeutende Imageträger eines Landes und in Spanien befindet sich demnach eine Vielzahl von diesen Werbeträgern, die aber sowohl werbetechnisch als auch translatorisch nicht immer den Anforderungen entsprechen. Das Ziel, welches mit der Verbreitung der Werbebroschüren angestrebt wird - nämlich die erfolgreiche Vermarktung einer touristischen Einrichtung, kann aber nur dann erreicht werden, wenn diese Anforderungen erfüllt werden.
Die vorliegende Hausarbeit behandelt somit spanische Fremdenverkehrsbroschüren als Übersetzungsproblem. Der Korpus einer ausgewählten Werbebroschüre für Touristeneinkünfte wird anhand des übersetzungsrelevanten Modells der Textanalyse nach Christiane Nord untersucht.
Die Hausarbeit ist in einen theoretischen und einen praktischen Teil gegliedert. Der Theorieteil dient dazu, für die Untersuchung relevante theoretische Grundlagen aus der Translation zu erläutern, die eine foundation für die Untersuchung der Werbebroschüre legen sollen. Im praktischen Teil erfolgt die Untersuchung der Broschüre nach dem übersetzungsrelevanten Modell der Textanalyse nach Christiane Nord.
Die Werbebroschüre ist eine insgesamt viersprachige, gebundene Broschüre, die für in-und ausländische Gäste im inn selbst, sowie zusätzlich in örtlichen Verkehrsämtern und Reisebüros ausgelegt wird. Die E-Mails an das lodge, welche unter anderem Fragen nach der Entstehung der Broschüre und ihren Übersetzungen beantworten sollten, wurden leider nicht beachtet. Somit muss auf eine Kritik an den textexternen Faktoren verzichtet werden.
Im letzten Kapitel wird das Ziel der Arbeit erreicht. Die Ergebnisse der Untersuchung werden zusammengefasst und bewertet, Mängel aufgezeigt und die Ursachen für diese Mängel sowie Vorschläge für deren Behebung angegeben.
Im Anhang befinden sich ausgewählte format- und Textbeispiele aus der Broschüre, die zur examine herangezogen wurden.
