Translation of Political Texts
To put it diplomatically: political texts are a challenge for the translator. This is because – more so than texts in other specialist areas – political texts require sound background knowledge.
The translator must be able to understand references to political events and translate these meaningfully. S/he must know which words are being used in the reporting of these. In addition, s/he must possess the diplomatic skills to avoid political pitfalls.
At the same time, political texts must be fluent and very precise in their formulation. They should contain no waffle or wishy-washy statements; instead, they should demonstrate robust argumentation.
