Is That a Fish in Your Ear? Translation and the Meaning of Everything review È eBook or Kindle ePUB Nslation rests on two presuppositions The first is that we are all different we speak different tongues and see the world in ways that are deeply influenced by the particular features of the tongue that we speak The second is that we are all the same that we can share the same broad and narrow kinds of feelings information understandings and so forth Without both of these suppositions translation could not exist Nor could anything we would like to call social life Translation is another name for the human conditi. There are a lot of things I liked about David Bellos s Is That a Fish in Your Ear Translation and the Meaning of Everything He succeeded in reminding me of what I have always found so fascinating in the art of translation and been amazed by while studying applied linguistics and anthropological linguistics learning various languages living in seven countries around the world and miscommunicating with others Namely this realisation that translation is what we all do all the time through various means language gestures facial expressions and what betrays some of our identities This book is as much about cultures identities philosophy values and societies as it is about among other issues simultaneous interpreting translation of poetry other literary texts and jokes translation in business and law the importance of contextualisation and the traps of eg thinking that native speakers know their own language better than those for whom it is not a mother tongue I liked the global approach with however most space devoted to English and French with which Bellos tackled the subjects Translation is and has always been the core of our cultures and our existence and therefore I believe Is That a Fish in Your Ear is a book for everyone who is at least slightly interested in the history of humanity and human communication

Is That a Fish in Your Ear? Translation and the Meaning of Everything review È eBook or Kindle ePUB Funny and surprising on every page Is That a Fish in Your Ear offers readers new insight into the mystery of how we come to know what someone else means whether we wish to understand Astérix cartoons or a foreign head of state Using translation as his lens David Bellos shows how much we can learn about ourselves by exploring the ways we use translation from the historical roots of written language to the stylistic choices of Ingmar Bergman from the United Nations General Assembly to the significance of James Cam. David Bellos famous for translating Life A User s Manual and his compendious Georges Perec bio writes a comprehensive semi scholarly and semi accessible book exploring translation in its multifarious forms Covering the complexities of literary translation from verbatim likenesses to humour to style into wider world areas such as legal and political translation less captivating material for laymen Bellos is a witty and super smart writer who makes a convincing case for the importance of translation and its unsung participants For those among you that means Manny still convinced a literary work loses too much in translation to bother reading if this marvellous book doesn t persuade you nothing will Last word from David A translation can t be right or wrong in the manner of a school uiz or a bank statement A translation is like a portrait in oils The artist may add a pearl earring give an extra flush to the cheek or miss out the grey hairs in the sideburns and still give us a good likeness It s hard to say just what it is that allows viewers to agree a portrait captures the important things the overall shape as that special look in the eye The mysterious abilities we have for recognizing good matches in the visual sphere lie near to what it takes to judge that a translation is good But the users of a translation unlike the friends of the portraitist s sitter don t have full access to the model they would barely need the translation if they did That s probably why translation raises such passionate responses There s no choice but to trust the translator When it comes to speech and writing people are an untrusting lot p331
