About Translation

“Translation is not a matter of words only: it is a matter of making intelligible a whole culture.” (Anthony Burgess)

Translation is not about reinventing the wheel. It rather means rendering a message in one language in another language. This requires a perfect understanding of the source language and a perfect command of the target language that should be, ideally speaking, the mother tongue of the translator.

Apart from that it also requires solid background knowledge since a translator can only translate what he/she understands. Buss-Knauf Translations pty ltd specialises in financial translations since the principal, Michael Buss, studied translation with a focus on economics. He also is a member of the Belgian Chamber of translators, interpreters and philologists.
