Translating Across Cultures is a collection of nine papers given at the 21st BAS/British and American Studies conference, held in Timisoara in May 2011. They focus on translation problems that may arise at various levels, from word to translation unit, when rendering a literary, legal, economic or hybrid text genre into a second language, as well as on some of the methodological issues raised by this process. The papers attempt to give answers to questions including: why or what cultural elements are important when mediating between languages or cultures? What equivalence can be found for certain cultural lexical items, for certain collocations or for business metaphors in the target language? The book also investigates the translation of 21st century 'Newspeak', as well as cases of lexical gaps; reveals similarities and differences in the linguistic expression of various concepts; and suggests possible ways of dealing with certain difficult translation problems.
