A study of the translation of names and invented words in Terry Pratchett’s Soul Music
2008 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to determine whether Peter Lindforss's translation of names and invented words in Terry Pratchett's novel Soul Music corresponds to the original. All proper names have been studied, both personal and geographical. This has been achieved through parallel reading of the original novel and the translation Levande Musik. Soul Music is a highly comical novel. Therefore the emphasis of the study is on the humorous aspects of names and invented words. Overall, Lindforss’s translation is well accomplished and preserves the humour to a great extent. The translation of invented words examined is nearly immaculate. However, some of the names are poorly translated, lowering the humorous quality of the text.
