Passion, perseverance and perfection must for excellent translation, a task awaiting recognition in Nepal

- Narayan Prasad Ghimire  KATHMANDU, (RSS): When chatty political leader KP Sharma Oli speaks in a typical way, he utters such jargons that are heard like 'proverbs' (?). But it is very difficult to find exact words and phrases to translate his speech into English. Similarly, another leader Chitra Bahadur KC sometimes speaks in the way that is not easy for many to translate his sentences into English.  Such difficulty in translation might be a common – a day to day - problem especially in the translation and editing desk of Nepali media, not to mention the translation of technical jargons which lack equivalent words. As a result, the translators and editors have no option but to 'escape' by resorting to the connotative meaning of the text/speech.  Mea culpa (?): when I sat to write a news commentary last time, I quoted Pradeep Giri's view...
