Abstract [en]

The intention of this essay is to illustrate and describe how to overcome various difficulties that may arise when translating terminology, in this case within the field of music, and which strategies may be helpful doing so. The texts dealt with under the analysis are four articles from the magazine Guitar Techniques which deals specifically with how to play certain songs on the guitar. The essay focuses on terminology, additions and omissions. More precisely it focuses on Vinay and Darbelnet’s translation strategies concerning translation in general and Ingo’s overview on word-formation possibilities when creating a new term. Furthermore, the study focuses on what grounds additions and omissions can be made and how to apply this when there is trouble in finding a good translation for a term.

The conclusion reached was that knowing at least the most common translation strategies are of great aid since terminology most often cannot just be found by using dictionaries.
