Quote of the week

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope y'all get to relax and enjoy the holidays. (Here in Germany, we have four days in total! Yeah, us!)

Here's a wonderful quote on translation I found, and I would like to share it with you, hoping it'll lift your spirits and give you a little extra boost for your work - the works of art you create every day for your clients!

“The translation called good
has original value as a work of art.”

  1. Work of art? Well, for a real good literary translations, this might apply. But when I do a real good patent translation or translation of a user manual, I certainly would call it, maybe, well crafted, but never a work of art :-)

    Ciao Manfred

    1. Art is always in the eye of the beholder... ;-)
