主讲内容:

Parallel corpora provide an insight into the notion of translation. What is translated is, of course, not the form but the content of a source text. But what is meaning, and where do we find it in language? Words or other units of meaning are not ‘real’ items; they are contingent, arbitrary concepts allowing us, language users and linguists, to make sense of texts or text segments.

While the unit of meaning is a monolingual concept, it sometimes differs from the unit that is translated into the target language. This is because the realities constructed in source language and target language tend to differ. Therefore we need the notion of a translation unit (that which is translated as a whole) and the translation equivalent (as what it appears in the target language). This is true for human as well as for machine translation (MT). Parallel corpora have improved MT a lot over recent years, but human translation, too, has profited from tools based on them. What MT can do these days I will show by two translations/back-translations of the University of Birmingham mission statement into Chinese. I will use examples taken from the Linguee website to demonstrate how access to parallel corpora can help us to identify the translation units and their target language equivalents we find in a text we have to translate.
