Science & technology translations
The complexity of scientific and technical translation lies in its very essence, it lies in the necessity to translate highly specific terminology. Apart from understanding the terminology itself, the translator must understand the context where it is used for sometimes it is exactly the context that the use of a particular term depends on.
Additionally, in terms of translating scientific and technical literature, it is necessary to mention the strictly developed phraseology adopted in this field. This phraseology is used in order to ensure that professionals immediately notice the necessary details (information or a guide to an action). Any deviations from the language adopted among specialists in the field are immediately noticed, resulting in a sense of unprofessionalism on the translator’s part. "Well-established documentation language" refers to the use of the same words and expressions, not only in terminology but also in the spheres of general technical and everyday language, a certain type of semi-professional jargon. Replacing these expressions with synonyms is unacceptable.
Additionally, the specific character of translating scientific texts is that a misperception of the meaning of the text by the translator and / or incorrect use of terminology can lead to a complete distortion of the meaning in the translated material. Such shortcomings can be found in texts translated by a translator who has not completely understood what the text was about or was not familiar with the terminology used in it.
