The translation of advertising features of a tourist text : Spanish source text, Swedish target text (English)
The translation of tourist texts, in addition to the usual challenges of any translation, has to deal with the difficulty of adequately translating the advertising message. This paper, titled “The translation of advertising features of a tourist text - Spanish source text, Swedish target text”, focuses on this issue by comparing a source text in Spanish with its translation into Swedish (elaborated by the author). Attention is given to the characteristics that convey the selling message of the text: the slogan, titles, paragraph-final sentences, and a series of genre-typical features like the use of pronouns and deixis.
The theoretic background and the comparison with Swedish parallel texts show that there seems to be a general similarity of characteristics between the source text and Swedish tourist texts, although an adaption of the translation to Swedish genre-traditions was considered necessary in the use of the 2nd person singular (being used considerably more often in the target text than in the source text) and in the use of imperatives (being used more often in the target text than in the source text, as a way of influencing the reader directly).
