The professional ethics of translation have traditionally been defined very narrowly: it is unethical for the translator to distort the meaning of the source text.
there are many cases when the translator is explicitly asked to “distort” the meaning of the source text in specific ways, as when adapting a text for television, a children’s book, or an advertising campaign.
From the translator’s internal point of view, the ethics of translation are more complicated still. What is the translator to do, for example, when asked to translate a text that s/he finds offensive? Or, to put that differently, how does the translator proceed when professional ethics (loyalty to the person paying for the translation) clash with personal ethics (one’s own political and moral beliefs)? What does the feminist translator do when asked to translate a blatantly sexist text? What does the liberal translator do when asked to translate a neo-Nazi text? What does the environmentalist translator do when asked to translate an advertising campaign for an environmentally irresponsible chemical company?
As long as thinking about translation has been entirely dominated by an external (non translator) point of view, these have been non questions — questions that have not been asked, indeed that have been unaskable. The translator translates whatever texts s/he is asked to translate, and does so in a way that satisfies the translation user’s needs. The translator has no personal point of view that has any relevance at all to the act of translation.
From an internal point of view, however, these questions must be asked. Translators are human beings, with opinions, attitudes, beliefs, and feelings. Translators who are regularly required to translate texts that they find abhorrent may be able to suppress their revulsion for a few weeks, or months, possibly even years; but they will not be able to continue suppressing those negative feelings forever.
Translators, like all professionals, want to take pride in what they do; if a serious clash between their personal ethics and an externally defined professional ethics makes it difficult or impossible to feel that pride, they will eventually be forced to make dramatic decisions about where and under what conditions they want to work.
And so increasingly translators are beginning to explore new avenues by which to reconcile their ethics as human beings with their work as translators. The Quebecoise feminist translator Susanne Lotbiniere-Harwood (1991), for example, tells us that she no longer translates works by men: the pressure is too great to adopt a male voice, and she refuses to be coopted. In her literary translations of works by women she works very hard to help them create a woman-centered language in the target culture as well. In The Subversive Scribe Suzanne Jill Levine (1992) tells us that in her translations of flagrantly sexist Latin American male authors, she works — often with the approval and even collaboration of the authors themselves — to subvert their sexism.

It is essential to be able to rely on translation — not only on the text, but on the translator as well, and generally on the entire translation process. Because this is important to the people who pay the bills, it will be important to the translator as well; the pragmatic considerations of keeping your job (for in-house people) or continuing to get offered jobs (for freelancers) will mandate a willingness to satisfy an employer’s or client’s needs. But for the translator or interpreter a higher consideration than money or continued employability is professional pride, professional integrity, professional self-esteem. We all want to feel that the job we are doing is important, that we do it well, and that the people we do it for appreciate our work. Most people, in fact, would rather take professional pride in a job that pays less than get rich doing things they don’t believe in.
Despite the high value placed on making a lot of money (and certainly it would be nice!), a high salary gives little pleasure without pride in the work. The areas in and through which translators typically take professional pride are reliability, involvement in the profession, and ethics.
Reliability in translation is largely a matter of meeting the user’s needs: translating the texts the user needs translated, in the way the user wants them translated, by the user’s deadline. The demands placed on the translator by the attempt to be reliable from the user’s point of view are sometimes impossible; sometimes disruptive to the translator’s private life; sometimes morally repugnant; often physically and mentally exhausting. If the demands are at all possible, however, in many or even most cases the translator’s desire to take professional pride in reliability will override these other considerations, and s/he will stay up all night doing a rush job, cancel a pleasant evening outing with a friend, or translate a text reliably that s/he finds morally or politically loathsome.
Involvement in the profession
It is a matter of little or no concern to translation users, but of great importance to translators, what translator associations or unions we belong to, what translator conferences we go to, what courses we take in the field, how we network with other translators in our region and language pair(s). These “involvements” sometimes help translators translate better, which is important for users and thus for the pride we take in reliability
Reading about translation, talking about translation with other translators, discussing problems and solutions related to linguistic transfer, user demands, nonpayment, and the like, taking classes on translation, attending translator conferences, keeping up with technological developments in the field, buying and learning to use new software and hardware — all this gives us the strong sense that we are are not isolated underpaid flunkies but professionals surrounded by other professionals who share our concerns
What does it take to be a translator or interpreter? What kind of person would even want to, let alone be able to, sit at a computer or in court day after day turning words and phrases in one language into words and phrases in another? Isn’t this an awfully tedious and unrewarding profession? The difference between a translator and a non translato
It can be. For many people it is. Some people who love it initially get tired of it, burn out on it, and move on to other endeavors. Others can only do it on the side, a few hours a day or a week or even a month: they are writers or teachers or editors by day, but for an hour every evening, or for an afternoon one or two Saturdays a month, they translate, sometimes for money, sometimes for fun, mostly (one hopes) for both. If a really big job comes along and the timing and money are right, they will spend a whole week translating, eight to ten hours a day; but at the end of that week they feel completely drained and are ready to go back to their regular work.
Translators and interpreters are voracious and omnivorous readers, people who are typically in the middle of four books at once, in several languages, fiction and nonfiction, technical and humanistic subjects, anything and everything.
They are hungry for real-world experience as well, through travel, living abroad for extended periods, learning foreign languages and cultures, and above all paying attention to how people use language all around them: the plumber, the kids’ teachers, the convenience store clerk, the doctor, the bartender, friends and colleagues from this or that region or social class, and so on.
Translation is often called a profession of second choice: many translators were first professionals in other fields, sometimes several other fields in succession, and only turned to translation when they lost or quit those jobs or moved to a country where they were unable to practice them; as translators they often mediate between former colleagues in two or more different language communities.
Any gathering of translators is certain to be a diverse group, not only because well over half of the people there will be from different countries, and almost all will have lived abroad, and all will shift effortlessly in conversation from language to language, but because by necessity translators and interpreters carry a wealth of different “selves” or “personalities” around inside them, ready to be reconstructed on the computer screen whenever My father worked for the international area of a major Brazilian bank. As a consequence, I lived in 8 countries and 10 cities between the ages of 1 and 19. My parents learned the languages of the places we lived in “on location”. My father never wanted us (my 3 brothers and I) to study in American or French schools (which can be found anywhere), but instead forced us to learn and study in the language of the place. My parents encouraged travel and language studies, and since I was 14, I traveled alone throughout Europe. I learned the 3Rs in Spanish, did high school in Italian and Portuguese. In Luxembourg, I studied at the European School in three languages at the same time (French, English and Italian) and spoke Portuguese at home. Italian used to be choice for girlfriends:-) The outcome: I speak Portuguese, English, Spanish, Italian, and French and translate from one into the other. I have always worked with the set of languages I learned in my youth. I have started learning Russian, but I didn’t like my teacher’s accent. For the future, I plan to study Chinese (I have a brother who lives in Taiwan and a nephew who speaks it fluently) . Renato Beninatto
a new text arrives, or out into the airwaves whenever a new speaker steps up to the podium. A crowd of translators always seems much bigger than the actual bodies present. But then there are non-translators who share many of these same characteristics: diplomats, language teachers, world travelers . . . What special skills make a well-traveled, well-read language lover a translator? Not surprisingly, perhaps, the primary characteristics of a good translator are similar to the expectations translation users have for the ideal translation: a good translator is reliable and fast, and will work for the going rate.
From an internal point of view, however, the expectations for translation are rather different than they look from the outside. For the translator, reliability is important mainly as a source of professional pride, which also includes elements that are of little or no significance to translation users; speed is important mainly as a source of increased income, which can be enhanced through other channels as well; and it is extremely important, perhaps even most important of all, that the translator enjoy the work, a factor that is of little significance to outsiders.

Do you want to translate your documents and looking for a reliable official document translation services? Here are the few things you need to know before translating your document
But the text is not the only important element of reliability for the user; the translator too must be reliable. Notice that this list is closely related to the traditional demand that the translator be “accurate,” and indeed contains that demand within it, under “Attention to detail,” but that it is a much more demanding conception of reliability than merely the expectation that the translator’s work be “correct.” The best synonym for the translator’s reliability would not be “correctness” but “professionalism”: the reliable translator in every way comports himself or herself like a professional.
A client that asks for a summary and receives a “correct” or “faithful” translation will not call the translator reliable — in fact will probably not call the translator ever again. A sensitive and versatile translator will recognize when a given task requires something besides straight “accuracy” — various forms of summary or commentary or adaptation, various kinds of imaginative re-creation — and, if the client has not made these instructions explicit, will confirm this hunch before beginning work.
Aspects of translator reliability
Reliability with regard to the text 1.Attention to detail The translator is meticulous in her attention to the contextual and collocational nuances of each word and phrase she uses. 2. Sensitivity to the user’s needs The translator listens closely to the user’s special instructions regarding the type of translation desired, understands those instructions quickly and fully, and strives to carry them out exactly and flexibly.
3. Research The translator does not simply “work around” words she doesn’t know, by using a vague phrase that avoids the problem or leaving a question mark where the word would go, but does careful research, in reference books and Internet databases, and through phone calls, faxes, and e-mail inquiries.
4. Checking The translator checks her work closely, and if there is any doubt (as when she translates into a foreign language) has a translation checked by an experf before delivery to the client. (The translator also knows when there is any doubt.) Reliability with regard to the client
5. Versatility The translator is versatile enough to translate texts outside her area of specialization, out of languages she doesn’t feel entirely competent in (always having such work checked, of course), in manners she has never tried. (The translator also knows when she can handle a novel task and when something is simply beyond her abilities and needs to be politely refused.)
6. Promises The translator knows her own abilities and schedule and working habits well enough to make realistic promises to clients or agencies regarding delivery dates and times, and then keeps those promises; or, if pressing circumstances make it impossible to meet a deadline, calls the client or agency and renegotiates the time frame or arranges for someone else to finish the job.
7. Friendliness The translator is friendly and helpful on the phone or in person, is pleasant to speak or be with, has a sense of humor, offers helpful advice (such as who to call for that one page of Estonian or Urdu), doesn’t offer unhelpful advice, etc. The user’s view 13 8. Confidentiality The translator will not disclose confidential matters learned through the process of translation (or negotiation) to third parties. Reliability with regard to technology 9. Hardware and software The translator owns a late-model computer, a recent version of Microsoft Word, an Internet connection (preferably high-speed/broadband), an e-mail address, and a fax machine, and either owns and uses regularly, or is prepared to purchase and learn how to use, translation memory software specified by the client.
