The Role of Translator in Intercultural Communication
AbstractTranslation/interpretation has always been central to intercultural communication. Lack of knowledge of another culture may cause confusion, misunderstanding or even offense during communication process and it also makes the conclusion of international or bilateral agreements difficult or impossible. To the extent that without communication there can be no negotiation, communication is obviously integral to the success of the mission. It is necessary for a translator or an interpreter to realize the importance of having a cultural background when taking part of this kind of negotiations, which can affect thousands of people. Therefore, this paper aims to offer a closer analysis of the translation profession from the point of view of intercultural communication.
