Untranslatable Words: To Be Enjoyed Socially, To Be Heeded In Business

Translation, Culture, Language

“What is he saying?” I asked my bilingual friend while studying Spanish in Chile. He paused, thought about the joke we had both just heard, and then said, “It’s hard to explain.”

I was just learning Spanish but he could speak both English and Spanish fluently, so I couldn’t wrap my mind around his inability to just directly translate.

Take each word, translate it in his mind, and then regurgitate it back in English. That’s all it is, right?

I later learned that sometimes things are hard to translate. Sometimes a word doesn’t have an equivalent in another language and is therefore, untranslatable, or impossible to directly translate without the help of calling upon many other words.

Human vs Machine : What’s the Future of Translation?

Translation

I admit it, I use Google Translate on a fairly regular basis. Mostly for casual word checks or to double check phrases people text me that I’m not totally certain of. Especially when I have a feeling they are trying to be funny. However, when the latter is the situation, I often find that Google helps very little because computer translation isn’t yet firm on its handle of local slang or words which have various local contexts. Then, yesterday, whilst in an international conference fully supported by simultaneous interpretation, I found myself marveling at the human ability to hear and translate in real time with little margin of error. There’s no way machine translation could piece together the witty banter between the two English executives and spit it out to a Colombian audience effectively, right? So when it comes to translation, where DO we stand in the humans vs machines race? How far away are we from a sci-fi reality?
