Fun facts about Translation and Interpreting

Appropriate translation is important. We can learn a lot from the translation mistakes of the past:

• During the Cold War, the Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev gave a speech, with a phrase interpreted from Russian as “we will bury you,” this was taken as a threat to bury the US with a nuclear attack. However the translation was too literal, and the correct translation should have been “we will live to see you buried” or “we will outlast you.”

• Mokusatsu: A translation mistake may have been the deciding factor for the fate of Hiroshima before the end of the Second World War. The word “mokusatsu” in response to the American’s proposal was translated as “treat with silent contempt”, which was seen as an arrogant response. Actually, Prime Minister meant “let me withhold my comment for now”.

Translators have to preserve the original meaning of a text/speech in a range of different contexts to facilitate cultural communication – it’s a big job with responsibilities.
