Quote of the week

13. April 2017

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.”

    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
