Happy Belgian National Day!

On the 21st of July every year, Belgian National Day is celebrated! It marks the anniversary of the investiture of Leopold I as the first King of the Belgians in 1831.

We wish all of our Belgian partners and clients Happy National Day from the entire arte.doc team!

Arte.Doc supports World Autism Awareness Day

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. For yet another year, we at arte.doc support a charity to help people with autism.

This year we joined the cause "I Help", organized by the association "Autism Today" Bulgaria, with the support of BNI Bulgaria DIAMOND.

The campaign aims to raise funds for the continuation of the construction of three new centers for highly qualified therapeutic care for children with autism in Bulgaria, in the cities - Burgas, Vratsa, and a second center in Sofia. Today there are only two active centers in Bulgaria, which are located in Sofia and Pleven.

Support is provided by purchasing T-shirts "I Help" from the association.
The funds raised from the sale of the T-shirts will help build the three new therapy centers and help more children with autism get the care they need.

All of us, even with small actions, can help make life easier for children with autism and their parents!

Happy 1st of March!

Happy 1st of March, or as we say in Bulgaria - Happy Baba Marta!

Baba Marta is an ancient Bulgarian tradition, which we celebrate on the 1st of March by giving each other a bracelet or a decorative pin, called martenichka, made out of red and white wool threads. The bracelet/pin is worn until the wearer sees a blooming tree or a stork. At that point the bracelet is hung in the blooming tree and the wearer makes a wish.

We wish you good health and lots of happiness!

Challenges and specificities of translation from Arabic

Arabic language is official in 26 countries, spoken by around 240 million people all over the world and is the second language of 50 million more. Being so peculiar and unusual to Europeans, it is considered one of the most ancient and mysterious languages.

Translations from Arabic used to be made relatively early. According to different sources one of the first evidence of that dates back to as early as the 7th century, and the period between the 8th and 13th century was marked by a real bloom in the translation of various Arabic texts. The science of Arabic translations developed in quite a specific way. A huge volume of works were translated, however the Muslims hesitated with translating their main book – the Quran – because it was forbidden to read it in any other language. It was not until the 12th century that the Quran was translated into Latin for the first time, and later on – into Italian, French and Russian.

Challenges and specificities of translation from Japanese

Japanese is a living reflection of the nature of this ancient Asian culture. The sensorial perception of the world and the avoidance of dull logical explanations based on detailed clarifications and quantitative data is transformed into the distinctive brevity and reserve of the speech. Silence and pauses are perceived as virtues and are preferred to the frequent use of adjectives, and the main point of an expression is found in its context.
Often when translating from and to Japanese, it is recommended to avoid literal interpretation. Of course, this is not valid for all kinds of texts, especially legal ones, but even those are about 50% more compact than legal documents drawn up in Bulgarian.

Interpreting is a responsible and complicated task. The interpreter must instantly choose the appropriate words and has no right of mistakes. That is why the successful interpretation requires great experience, solid knowledge in the field of the topic and skilful handling of the vocabulary that would reflect right the cultural characteristics of the target language.

There are two types of interpretation – synchronized simultaneous interpretation and consecutive successive interpretation.
