A man, a word …
“A man, a word – a woman, a dictionary“
One may think: What an impolite German saying.
espaTrans doesn’t. We love dictionaries!
It’s for you …
Do you know the following situation? The phone either does not ring at all or it does ring at the most inopportune moments: during lunch break while you are eating, or the moment you are JUST about to find the solution to a problem.
Most of the time, however, phone calls come at convenient moments and are a delight.
Somehow, phone call situations have a lot in common with the weather. What do you think?
Interpreting strikes back
Star Wars meets the world of translation – a story in three episodes.
Episode I: In an interview with George Lucas on German TV, he utters the legendary sentence “May the force be with you”.
Episode II: The interpreter understands “May the fourth be with you” instead.
Episode III: Thus, his German translation says: “On May the fourth, we will be with you”.
Can you guess where we would rather be right now?
As we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, on the occasion of the world’s largest trade fair for sweets and snacks (ISM), we will just let the following picture speak for itself.
By the way, we can also do sweet translations!
The scale of language
Language is capable of cultivating extremely long words. A record-breaking example with 45 letters which made it into the dictionary is „pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis“.
However, genomics is ahead in terms of long words: the scientific name for the human protein titin has no fewer than 189,819 letters!
