Abstract [en]

The present paper treats translation difficulties arising from the translation of a political

biography from Spanish into Swedish. More specifically it deals with the translation of

cultural and dialectal aspects typical of the Andean region. Parting from the 18 translation

strategies defined by Amparo Hurtado Albir (2001) it studies the application and frequency of

said strategies when translating cultural references. The aspects treated were divided into

cultural and dialectal aspects, with the first category being divided into three subcategories:

the Andean culture, geographical references, and other cultural references.

The conclusions were that the strategy most frequently applied was that which Hurtado Albir

(2001) calls a

mplificación, meaning that information is added to the target text to explain

phenomena unknown in the target culture. This strategy was often accompanied by a


that is, a loan of the source language word into the target text. In the translation of

dialect the main tendency found was that of a neutralization of the non standard language.
