Abstract [en]

In the translation process the text moves from the home environment it was created for to a completely different culture. In many cases it may be necessary to help the new reader to understand certain culture-related concepts, if they are not widely known in the target culture. The reader of the target text may deviate regarding his cultural affiliation from the source text audience so much that the differences must be taken into consideration in the translation. This is made through various translation strategies, which create adjustments in the content.

   The aim of this essay is to make a comparative analysis on Swedish translation of a French architectural text. We focus on what types of translation strategies we have to apply in the transmission of architectural terms in the source text to the target text and on the frequency of different strategies. We are interested in discovering whether a particular strategy is more common than another in this cultural translation and the result of this quantitative difference will be discussed and motivated to finally be presented at the end of the study. As an introduction to the essay, we describe the process of cultural translation and its difficulties.

   After completing the comparative analysis, we realize that although some cultural words exist in the target culture, they do not always have the same significance in France and Sweden. This means that their cultural implications differ from each other.
