The Purpose of My Author Website at Recanto das Letras
I had been thinking for months how teach the translation process from Portuguese into English for interested people or you, dear reader that is looking for a translation course. One reason to create my author website is that most Brazilian people and people from Engish-speaking countries would like to get an in-depth knowledge of the translation process and an easy method to learning it. This is the main goal of my website here at Recanto das Letras. Helping those people not only to learn the translation process, but also to understand how the translation occurs, and which tools are necessary to help them to translate sentences and texts from Portuguese into English correctly. I believe it is your goal too.
Since nobody is perfect, I will try to do my best to explain here on my author website how to make translations by using easy translation techniques. I am not an expert in translation, as many professional translators spread around the world. But I will strain every nerve to help you find the best acceptation for the translation of words of a sentence or text. I know you are willing to start now, but take it easy! I will teach you everything you need to translate sentences, expressions and your texts correctly. Do not be discouraged if you are a beginner, and find translation a tedious work. Do not give up studying also. Along the way, you will overcome fear of making mistakes and will understand that translation is not a thorny problem. Even professional translators deal with problems of equivalence because translation does not allow a word-for-word translation of idioms and proverbs, and a translation of a given word or set of words of Portuguese will not be like those possible meanings (translated form) you can find in English-Portuguese and Portuguese-English dictionaries. That is why, I will highlight the importance of not trusting completely in such dictionaries, because they are very limited to provide the correct context of words from one language into another. However, if you want to learn to translate and avoid making mistakes, this website is just for you.
In conclusion, I would like to say that it is a great satisfaction to help you understand translation. That my author website may contribute to a better understanding of the translation process.
