Sample text

For instance, Kharbutli (1960/1966) turns a clearly negative attitude of the author (Washington Irving (1969–2002) in The Life of Mahomet) towards Islam into a positive attitude in his translation. ϱΩϮϬϴϟ΍ ϦϳΪϟ΍ ϥϮϣήΘΤϳ [Some of what came in the Quran previously came in the Torah and the Bible, especially the verses which concern angels and prophets, and the good and bad genie. And therefore the Muslims in the early period respected the Jewish faith] (12) Much of the Koran may be traced to the Bible, the Hishnu and the Talmud of the Jews, especially its wild though often beautiful traditions concerning the angels, the prophets, the patriarchs, and the good and evil genii.

Husni and Newman 2008, 234–235) In the above example, there is a fatalistic nuance in ΐϴμϨϟ΍ Ύϫ˯ΎΟ lit. ‘the luck came to her’ regarding the concerned event, viz. ΖΟϭΰΗ ‘she got married’ (for more details about fatalistic expressions in Arabic, see Farghal 1993a). The translators, being aware of this culture-specific segment, have resorted to deletion as rendering it literally would be unidiomatic and, indeed, nonsensical in English. However, from a stylistic perspective, the translators need to have taken this fatalistic shade of meaning into account by offering something like ‘her luck changed and she got married’ or ‘Life smiled on her and she got married’.

The ST and TT should be intertextually coherent with each other. The TT is “judged to be intertextually coherent to the extent that there is consistency between the intentionality of the source text producer, the way this is interpreted, and the way it is reexpressed with target language” Hatim (2001, 75–6); 3. e. the TT must be intratextually coherent. It follows that each of the skopos rules discussed above exerts certain constraints on the translator. Firstly, adopting a global strategy will undoubtedly affect the local strategies taken by the translator, that is, reasoned decisions, such as addition, omission, deviation, lexical choice, maintaining or ignoring some stylistic features, reflecting or changing the register concerning specific problems of grammar, punctuation, syntax, style, comprehension and accuracy.
