Difficulties Encountered in Story Translation

Literary translation doesn’t necessarily have to involve a lengthy piece of literature such as a novel. A story translation is a common type of literary translation that is often performed by translators. Sometimes a short translation of story can be as difficult as a much lengthier book translation as well as novel translation. This is in part due to the art of the short story. A story may often include an odd twist or contain a meaning beyond that which the story conveys on the surface. It is twists and hidden meanings that make short stories so intriguing but that are the easiest thing to lose when translating a story due to cultural differences.

Many cultures have traditional stories and fables that are translated into other languages and for it to have the same impact on readers in other cultures the translator must be aware of both the target and source cultures. A story in Spanish translation that ignores cultural differences won’t induce the same feelings in readers.

Cultural terms also offer difficulties and fall into several categories:
  • Words or expressions referring to folklore, traditions and mythology: Examples in English include Christmas stocking, touchdown and tag
  • Names of everyday objects, actions and events: English examples of such terms include happy hour, miles, earmuffs
  • Social and historical terms for departments, professions, titles, ranks etc.: Examples in English include provincial, civil and sophomore
