A comparative analysis of constraints and failures. Since the beginning of interpreting research, sight translation has mostly been considered as a pedagogical exercise and interpreters are rarely trained in this task per se. However, sight translation, consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting are performed under different conditions, and these determine how cognitive resources are managed and what strategies are adopted. The study compares the performance of six professional interpreters in sight translation, simultaneous interpreting and consecutive interpreting with a view to identifying particular constraints and problems. Results show that interpreters face different difficulties and use different efforts in each mode. Sight translation emerges as a complex and unique technique, whose cognitive demands on the interpreter are by no means less than those of simultaneous and consecutive. This paper investigates this problem by testing the effect of six problematic English linear arrangements on the accuracy of performance of interpreters in three text types: These constructions are considered problematic because they contain key words which force the interpreter to lag too far behind the speaker before they are rendered into Arabic.

Thoughts from Galicia, Spain: March

So pilled my shiza on a cart and made like speed racer all the way from gate 80 to 8 in 4 mins. I think I nearly broke a land speed airport trolley record and some lady’s leg. Regardless I made it and was greeted at Heathrow by my aunt Catharine.

I stare at this picture of you everyday after I wake up. You would have loved all of this. This was our dream from the start. My life would be exciting but now this weather seems to suffocate me every day while I walk to work. I try and wake up early and find purpose. I work out in the morning using my suitcase and bedpost as a means to complete my workout. After 30 minutes of this I convince myself that I am ready for the day.

I check if my ipod is charged. I sit on the end of the bed for my last 5 minutes and watch the news displayed in spanish trying to figure out what they are talking about.

Thoughts from Galicia, Spain

Random thoughts from a Brit in the North West. Sometimes serious, sometimes not. Saturday, March 31, My visitor last week asked whether Spain had anything like the yellow box system which allows the traffic to flow at junctions. I said it did but that it was honoured more in the breach than the observance. A few minutes later, we came upon just such a junction. The car stopped illegally in the middle of it belonged to the local police.

Unlike other regions of Chile which have spectacular sights in some places and rather mundane spots over their majority of it, the 11th Region is simply spectacular just about everywhere. The Pinochet-initiated scenic Carretera Austral runs through the entire Region, which requires traversing a Pacific Ocean inlet via an hour ferry ride embarcadero toward its southern end. The town now boasts of inhabitants, according to the Census page 48 , up The elevation of the town is around meters under 1, feet.

See the image below: That policy should increase the population and likely the level of consumer services. At present, there is no industry other than fledgling tourism and a little bit of cattle ranching. The land is no good for most agriculture, except perhaps cherry trees and some hay cultivation. One sees horses around, too.

The rest of the folks take the occasional bus to Cochrane or ride the small plane to Coyhaique when it comes—twice a week if weather if good , relying on walking or horseback riding for local transportation. The following two photos show the town. The yellow homes are at the far right in the first photo and the airstrip and cemetery are adjacent to the town, between it and the nearby mountains.

(Sudamericana joven: Novela) ISBN Coming-of-age Disillusionment The protagonists of this novel are three elevenyear- old girls, who live in an ordinary quarter of Buenos Aires. If they want to be undisturbed, the three friends retreat to a magnolia tree.

In Peru, Anything Can Happen These were the words of wisdom imparted to us by our guide, Enrique, as we embarked on our 5-day trek to Salkantay and Machu Picchu. It was amazing, and it was really, really hard. Day 1 A bus picked us up at our hostel at 4: After a few more stops in Cuzco alt. After lunch soup, rice, and delicious lomo saltado beef stew the road was blessedly “boring” read: We arrived at our first campsite at the base of Salkantay alt. Luckily there was a shelter in which we could set up our tents, so we stayed dry.

We drank coca tea, ate dinner and were huddled in our sleeping bags by 8 p.

Thanks to emigration, Galicia’s biggest city is still Buenos Aires and the biggest Galician cemetery is the Cristobal Colón cemetery in Havana. Perhaps only the Irish can fully understand the Galician experience of .

Havana Three times, legally, I’ve crossed the Straits of Florida to that elegant, aging lady lounging ninety miles to the south, Havana. Once the crown jewel of Spanish America, Havana was the primary point of entry for settlers and slaves and the last point of departure for the gold and sugar reaped from the depths of Spain’s colonial empire. Now, the weathered dowager is home to around three million restless, educated, cultured, industrious souls who barely have five cents to make a dollar of, let alone fifteen.

Cubans on the island, not the exiles are the physical embodiment of what’s good and bad with the year-old Castro regime: Cubans keep their one good guayabera or Sunday dress sparkling clean and pressed, their one pair of patent leather pumps or loafers gleaming despite the torn insole or the worn-down heel. They stay clean and fragrant when there’s barely any soap and sometimes share clothes with friends so as not to always be seen in the same outfit.

They remain keenly aware of world events, despite hardly ever being allowed to leave their own island. They could be a street sweeper with a masters in engineering or an ecology-degree-holding fisherman. They could be a prostitute with a law degree who speaks five languages and the hope of one day using one of those languages when some European decides to take her away. They know all about Li’l Kim and Li’l Wayne, and they can identify a black American male by the li’l hop or pimp that we do when we’re walking in “don’t fuck with me” mode.

Intel on good areas to game in the Guadalajara data sheet Summary from my experience written when I returned: I probably made close to fifty approaches in six days. Every single day, anywhere from three to ten approaches. But quality approaches matter, not quantity. Amazingly, went on five insta-dates in the first four days I was there.

I used to do that too. And now I actually live in that language country, since 10 years. So I am not this kind of white person anymore? I have pale skin, black hair and green eyes. People are still so fixated on skin color — that you can be white but not be white. I have attempted Spanish, French, Italian, Swahili for extra credit on a project in school, and continued just because I was bored , Dutch, and Gaelic.

And I find this quite funny as a white person who took three years of Italian and orders in Italian and overpronounces Italian words in English. Leading off a post with this unrelated PC nugget; wow, what an innovative technique! Natives commit terrorism every day in Canada and are currently occupying private property under the threat of violence as we speak.

And you are pulling your readers heart strings with historical inaccuracies about the bad old white man. And outside of Toronto, it is not uncommon for Canadians for the white man to learn a second language such as French to a level of proficiency. The fluoride added to Toronto water inhibits frontal lobal activity linked to learning of French. In white person overseriousness, may I now interject that it is nearly impossible to become completely, native-level fluent in a language unless one begins studying it before puberty, when there is more neuroplasticity in the brain.

Indeed, it is particularly concerning when members of the press, media and communications also fail to possess a clear understanding of how the language is correctly constructed. The rising issue today is that even amongst journalists, a group of professionals which, by nature, should be devoted to the delivery of flawless written material, also contribute to the production of grammatically correct written documents.

As journalists tweet and post about their press releases all over the Internet, there is little concern for grammar and for the enrichment of the Spanish language. A brief overview of RAE The primary mission, the backbone off of which everything hangs, at RAE relates directly to the common union of all Spanish speaking societies through the correct use of the Spanish language.

Even though Spanish is a language which changes, sometimes radically, from place to place, the roots of the language are fundamentally the same. RAE aims to promote and maintain the use of these common traits in order to encourage Spanish speakers to pay more attention to the correct production of texts, for whatever purpose, in their native language. One of the most impressive elements of the work done at RAE is the language guide, accessible via its website www.

RAE is also responsible for the publication of two texts. At pages long, the text is particularly dense, but this is why RAE has also produced a reduced version, which covers the most important elements and a pocket book version to always have easily to hand. Its prime objective is to ensure that the media and other forms of communication contribute to the correct use of the Spanish language.
