We recently had a request from a client who wanted to tattoo two Japanese ideograms (so-called Kanji) on his forearm. In the request, he indicated the meaning that ideograms should have in the Serbian language, and he asked for a translation into Japanese. You would only say two characters, right?
However, what the client does not know is that, for example, in Japanese, there are so many ideograms that have the same meaning, and that it only depends on the context which ideogram will be used, and that it is necessary to do a little research which of these meanings to hand over to the client. The same goes for all the languages of the world.
The tattoo stays for life! Now, imagine if we did it wrongly…
ABOUT THE AGENCY
Translation agency “Aber and Mar” originates back in 2005, when a group of colleagues, friends and family, translators and court interpreters, began work on translating documents and teaching languages, a job they used to do as young philologists, giving classes to elementary school students and helping them do better control tasks and, later, pass language exams.
