(AR) (EN) (PDF) - The translation of fast-food advertising texts from English to Arabic | BASEM ABBAS AL AGHA (Google Drive) | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"On the assumption that the translation strategies used to translate American fast-food advertisements into Arabic cause the Arabic translations to be culturally bound to their originals, the aim of the present study is to identify such translation strategies. The study was conducted with the aid of questionnaires as a primary research method to obtain data which are then complemented by means of textual analyses of the corpus. The findings reveal that the main translation strategies used to translate phrases in fast-food advertisements fromEnglish into Arabic are borrowing and transliteration. The overall finding is that inadequate translations of culturespecific concepts, phrases, logosand terms produce target texts which are bound to the source texts. This causes the translations to be rejected by the target culture.
Key terms: advertising; fast food, advertising agencies; translation strategies; culture-specific concepts; logos; phrases; descriptive translation studies."

"Interessanti novità dalla banca dati terminologica europea IATE (InterActive Terminology for Europe) che da alcune settimane ha messo a disposizione una versione scaricabile della sua vasta raccolta terminologica, fatta di oltre 8 milioni di termini nelle 24 lingue europee.

In questo articolo vedremo insieme come trasformare il materiale fornito da IATE in un semplice glossario bilingue (formato Excel o TXT “tab-delimited”) da importare successivamente nel nostro CAT preferito. Questo ci permetterà di accedere alla terminologia IATE anche senza una connessione internet.

(FI) - Sanastokeskus TSK:n termipankki | TEPA | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"TEPA on Sanastokeskus TSK:n kokoama ja ylläpitämä termipankki. Se sisältää erikoisalojen termejä ja määritelmiä, jotka esitetään monikielisinä termitietueina. Termipankin rungon muodostaa Sanastokeskuksen oma aineisto, mutta se sisältää myös muita asiantuntijoiden laatimia alakohtaisia sanastoja. TEPA-termipankki on toteutettu Kielikone Oy:n kehittämällä MOT®-sanakirjaohjelmalla.

TEPAn sanastot on yhdistelty sanastoryhmiksi aineiston lähteen perusteella. Valitsemalla sanastoryhmän Kaikki haku tehdään kaikkiin TEPAssa oleviin aineistoihin. Haun voi myös rajoittaa muihin sanastoryhmiin valitsemalla yhden tai useamman sanastoryhmän. Omat sanastoryhmänsä on Sanastokeskus TSK:n omilla sanastoilla (TSK:n sanastot), ruotsalaisen Terminologicentrum TNC:n sanastoilla (TNC:n sanastot), Kotimaisten kielten keskuksen ruotsin kielen osaston sanastoilla (Kotuksen sanastot) sekä muilla sanastoilla (Muut sanastot).

Sanastokeskus ylläpitää TEPAa maksuttomassa käytössä opetus- ja kulttuuriministeriön tuen turvin. Termipankin uudistustyöhön saatiin opetus- ja kulttuuriministeriön projektitukea vuosina 2006–2007."

(EN) - Glossary of class names of organic compounds and reactive intermediates based on structure | International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry

(EN) - Glossary of class names of organic compounds and reactive intermediates based on structure | International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"This is a glossary of terms used to denote classes of compounds, substituent groups and reactive intermediates, in contrast to individual compounds. The overwhelming majority of the terms refer to organic compounds, but a few classes that may be considered inorganic are included for convenience. The principal criterion for inclusion is that the class be definable by structure.

A class is a set of compounds sharing a common structural feature to which is attached a variable part (or parts) defining a specific compound of the class. The common feature is often a functional group to which one or a small number of variable parts are attached (e.g. aldehydes, ketones). The variable parts are in this glossary represented by hydrocarbyl groups (q.v.). The most simple representation of a class is thus defined. However membership of one class need not exclude membership of another class, and certain substitutions, as e.g. with heterocyclyl groups (q.v.) linked through a carbon atom in the R group, may be allowed. For instance, ethylamine as well as [1-(furan-2-yl)ethyl]amine and (2-methoxyethyl)amine belong to the class amines. The common feature may also be a sizeable part of the molecular structure, or a repetitive part of the molecular structure, possibly but not necessarily devoid of functionalities (e.g. steroids, terpenoids); quite often the attached variable groups may be many and of any functionality."

(EN) - Acoustic Glossary, Sound Vibration Definitions, Terms, Units & Parameters | Gracey & Associates | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"The world of acoustics is overflowing with terms and parameters. For example; Lmax is often used to describe the maximum sound level, but was the measurement A-weighted and was a Fast, Slow or Impulsive Time Constants used. Already we have introduced several variables for one simple measurement, without mentioning the measurement duration.

To describe any A-weighted, Fast Time Constant, Maximum measurements, correctly, we should use the form LAFmax. However in the real world many people continue to use the 'simple' Lmax. Similarly the terms LA = 90 dB, 90 dBA or 90 dB(A) are often used to describe the same measured value.
This glossary is for visitors and customers who come across a term they do not know, or are not sure about. If a term is not strictly correct we do not go into great detail explaining where it differs from the strict convention, we just say what the term 'means' in the practical world. Where appropriate we also include the correct definition.
Listing terms alphabetically means some related terms are spread 'randomly' around the site. We have therefore grouped the Main Topics and Related Terms together - to see this sub-menu click here or the + sign on any page."

(ES) - El nuevo Diccionario de la lengua española incluirá 19 mil americanismos | Jorge Ruiz | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"La 23ª edición del Diccionario de la lengua española (DRAE) que comenzará a circular el próximo 21 de octubre contará con 19 mil americanismos, informó la Real Academia Española (RAE).

En total el diccionario recogerá cerca de 200 mil acepciones, incluyendo 19 mil americanismos y alrededor de seis mil artículos nuevos.

La aparición, entre 2009 y 2011, de un importante grupo de obras académicas ("Nueva gramática de la lengua española", "Ortografía de la lengua española" y "Diccionario de americanismos") ha hecho necesario el desarrollo de trabajos de armonización entre los contenidos de estas obras y el "Diccionario".

Entre la lista de nuevos artículos figuran términos como “dron”, “bótox”, “jonrón” y voces típicas de algunos países como “identikit”.

También se incluirán términos relacionados con internet como “hipervínculo”. Y otras palabras como “bloguero” y “tuitear”, que ya se habían admitido en ..."
