Challenges of Moving Abroad

Things you should know (and research about) beforehand Thinking of moving abroad can be scary for most people. To begin with, you don’t really know where to start. Also, you never know what’s coming ahead. Whether you are moving on your own, or for work, being organized and planning is a must to make your experience a good one. You should start by researching the country you are moving to. Keep reading to know our Challenges of Moving Abroad list. Why move abroad I am a Venezuelan-Italian woman. I lived in Venezuela most of my life, although I grew up exposed to the best of both cultures, languages, and traditions. Since I was little, my biggest dream was to live somewhere in Europe. Despite the fact that I grew up thinking of moving abroad, little did I know that moving to Switzerland would change my life so much. I did some research before moving there, but I went without a job or language training, so trying to start a new life in a new place was a real challenge! Things you should consider when moving abroad: Yes, moving abroad makes you feel out of place, without a safe ground, emotionally speaking, for quite a bit. Whether you are living on your own or moving with family or friends, the feeling of being alone accompanies you most of your day. Things get better as you settle. Use your free time to do something useful regarding your stay. Family and friends. Moving abroad means you leave your life, including family and friends, behind. Luckily, you can stay connected with them with all... read more

Translation Problematics

This is why translation tools will never get the job done properly Differences: without them translating would be less interesting In our previous post we talked about the basics regarding translating and have a brief introduction to the occurring problematic. In this post, we’d like to talk about cultural differences. In one of our earlier posts, we covered the fact that there are different dialects, connotations and denotations in any given language. There are also differences in sayings, cultural presuppositions, writing and many more aspects, so a direct translation (1-1) becomes impossible. Therefore, the translator can’t preserve all the little components of meaning when transferring the source text into the target language. Here are some examples If you have a scene in a movie or a book that is written in French and there is a part where someone speaks Canadian French, a French-speaking person might grasp this particular context but a non-French speaker will not.  When you translate this scenario into English, you have to choose some kind of a dialect that delivers the desired differences. Another example could be translating a metaphor which does not exist in the target language. Now the translator has to decide if s/he describes the image, or if s/he goes for a more literal translation, or maybe there is a solution where you could use a completely different image which still delivers the same meaning. The cultural aspect Cultural aspects are sometimes hard to understand if you haven’t had any first-hand experiences with that culture before. Facial expressions and gestures can mean the complete opposite of what you are used to. One... read more
