» Cultural and Language Boundaries: Once Upon a time…in Pamplona – Colombia
By cjaimes1 | Published 09/29/2013 | Translator Education | Recommendation:
This article shows the most common meaning of culture, as suggested, is that of large groups of people and how their lifestyles and beliefs differ; this is where cultural differences come in. In the words of Stuart Hall, ‘culture’ is “both the means and values which arise among distinctive social groups and classes, on the basis of their given historical conditions and relationship, through which they ‘handle’ and respond to the conditions of existence” (Hall, 1990). Therefore, cultural differences are the variations in the way of life beliefs and traditions between different countries. We as Colombians may tease and joke with the best of us, but we always have a wicked grin or a flash in our generally dark eyes. We rarely use those familiar clipped, smile-free comments or the sharp yet inside criticisms that need a few seconds to take effect.

» The Words from the Gap II: De-characterizing or Enriching?
By Marcia Pinheiro | Published 06/23/2017 | Translation Theory | Not yet recommended
There are world objects that seem to remain unnoticed by certain cultures and peoples. Those would probably need to import alien sigmatoids, coming from other languages and cultures, in order to correctly identify those world objects, in order to correctly connect to them. The whole concern is then with how much that de-characterizes a culture or a people. Besides, this de-characterization does not have to be something bad; it might actually be a good thing for human kind as a whole, so that this topic might be something that fits inside of strategic studies, therefore studies about war, and those are perhaps the most valued in modernity.
