“Translation is not a matter of words only; it is a matter of making intelligible a whole culture.” – Anthony Burgess
Many people are beginning to come to terms with this very notion. In a world that is rapidly moving towards globalization and cultural openness, it has never been more important to be able to understand one another. Hence, interpreters and translators alike are the limbs for this process. The role is greater than is usually attributed in daily life, which is a shame considering they are the unofficial ambassadors for an entire culture.
Found in Translation, a newly published book by Nataly Kelly and Jost Zetzsche, exemplify how language is at the core a means to this end of cross lingual communication. They cover a wide range of instances where language has bridged the gap to making life happen. The book has been a hit among varied audiences, and it’s only been released for a few weeks.
