Cultural Knowledge in Translation.
Olk, Harald
ELT Journal, v57 n2 p167-74 Apr 2003
Describes a study exploring the influence of cultural knowledge on the translation performance of German students of English. Found that the students often lacked sufficient knowledge about British culture to deal with widely-used cultural concepts. Findings suggest that factual reference sources have an important role to play in translation studies. (Author/VWL)
