Forms-based translation attempts to follow the form of the source language SL and it is known as literal translation, while meaning-based translation makes every effort to communicate the meaning of the SL text in the natural forms of the receptor language.
This discipline questions translation through cultural differences. Indeed, translation studies are not only based on language issues, but also on cultural contexts between peoples.
An anthropological translator of cultures needs to deal with the issues between the source and the target language, that is to say he must respect at the same time the cultural source of point of view and the target culture.
Wilhelm von Humboldt shared this opinion of translation in a letter addressed to A. Schlegeldated July 23, Every translator is doomed to be done in by one of two stumbling blocks: In this case, a cultural translator must have a much more widespread knowledge than the text actually provides.
Besides, translation of cultures cannot be as equal as it should be, as some cultures and societies remain dominant compared to others, therefore power is a limit to translation of cultures. Indeed, within a translation of cultures, the target language may dominate the source culture in order to make the text comprehensible in a sense of culture for the readers.
The meaning of culture is quite difficult to understand, therefore translation of cultures is certainly limited, all the more so borders exist between cultures, which must be thus distinguished.
This limit of translation of cultures was also explained in the theory of Edward Sapiran American linguist and anthropologist: According to some linguistssuch as C. Wren, differences of point of view between peoples relatively impose narrow limits to cultural translatability.
Catford rationalised this theory in his book "Linguistic Theory of Translation": For instance, the names of some institutions, clothes, foods and abstract concepts, amongst others. Dominance of some cultures is consequently obvious within the World Historyfor instance during the time when colonialism represented a main ideology among many different countries.
One should say that translation of cultures may reflect an inequality between cultures and peoples. Furthermore, translation of cultures provides other issues, such as conflicts between cultures and historical changes. A two-fold process[ edit ] Translation may be obviously linked to exchanges, migration and mobilityterms which are the essence of globalization.
Therefore, this discipline presents a two-fold process, that is to say the transnational across borders and translational exchange of translations concepts.
This two-fold process withdraws the separation between the source and the target language and enables to negotiate cultural differences. Culture offers two different meanings: As previously explained, culture gets an important role and meaning in translation.
According to Katan, culture is a shared model of the world, a hierarchical model of beliefsvalues and strategies which can guide action and interaction of people. Culture can be acquired through diverse ways, like education. The term civilization is defined as a developed human society which managed to create its own culture through people.
As civilization lead to the creation of evident ways of communication, such alphabetdictionaries and to a tremendous development of languages and literatures, this process raised new questions in cultural translation.About us.

Translation as a Means of Cross-Cultural Communication: Some Problems in Literary Text Translations should be characterized by "naturalness of expression" in the translation and that it should relate to the culture of the "receptor".
In his article, “The Nature and Role of Norms in Translation”, Gideon Toury emphasizes on presenting the remarkable relationship between translation and culture; he says, “Translation is a kind of activity which inevitably involves at least two languages and two cultural traditions” (Toury ).
