Nor is it a treatise on translation theory or a historical overview of Arabic-English translation. Rather, it is intended to explain and illustrate various questions that are of relevance to the translator who works between these two languages.
It focuses on common errors made by students and translation practitioners in general, with an emphasis on the microstructural linguistic elements of the translation process.
The clear practical intent, however, does not mean that the A to Z is devoid of theory or that it does not play a part in translation. In fact, theory is everywhere and the way in which the translation mechanisms and processes are discussed is rooted in a solid theoretical basis.
One of the questions that any author needs to ask is whether their book fills an existing gap in the market.
The answer in the case of the A to Z is that it fills several. Secondly, while the overwhelming majority of existing works concentrate on one translation direction, the A to Z is — very much like the scripts that are used in it — bidirectional inasmuch as it addresses problems relating to both Arabic- English and English-Arabic translation.
Naturally, the inevitable consequence is that some entries may be more relevant to native speakers of either Arabic or English. However, it would be wrong to presume that this is a misguided attempt 11 Introduction to be all things to all people. What is more, the aim is never to discuss grammatical points per se, but only in relation to their difficulty in translation. Indeed, there are plenty of grammar books available for those whose appetite has been whetted for more detail on grammatical items.
Thirdly, rather than dealing with themes or processes, the A to Z focuses on specific translation problems, each of which is carefully contextualized and illustrated for the most part by authentic examples culled from contemporary literature and the media from various Arab countries. The English variety employed in the book is formal British English, though relevant comments are provided regarding North American usage when necessary.
In addition to our students, both past and present, many of whose challenging questions we have attempted to answer, the authors would like to thank Jack Wesson for his meticulous feedback on the manuscript. Imperfect intrans. Intransitive verbs m. One generally makes a distinction between abbreviations and acronyms in that the latter can be read as words.
Whilst acronyms are generally capitalized, abbreviations tend to be in lower case, except if they involve proper nouns or technical terms. Acronyms are often added with suffixes.
Whilst some are part of informal usage e. Western-style abbreviations and acronyms are a very recent invention under the influence of English. They remain quite rare and are generally restricted to media Arabic. As a result, when translating English acronyms into Arabic, it is always safer to give the full form. In Arabic, the preposition and the comparative for numbers and quanti- ties are the usual translations of these terms. Related Papers.
