Paper Title :
Untranslatability in Arabic: The Impact of the Cultural Load

Author :Derni Ammaria

Article Citation :Derni Ammaria , (2018 ) " Untranslatability in Arabic: The Impact of the Cultural Load " , International Journal of Management and Applied Science (IJMAS) , pp. 20-23, Volume-4,Issue-3

Abstract : This paper has the twofold aim of studying the translatability of Arabic texts by means of a machine from a cultural perspective. Considering Arabic as a source language culture, the idea of the translatability of Arabic texts is manifested in this paper in two ways. In the first perspective the concept is viewed with reference to the absence of lexical equivalents in the target language. In the second one, the concept of reference is considered as part of the source language but expressed in a way specific to the source culture. The paper, and in view of the presence of some culturally-bound items in Arabic, is fuelled by the following question: What impact does culture have on machine translation from and to Arabic? Keywords - machine/automated translation - textual translatability - cultural untranslatability - culturally-bound items
