Sample text

Administrative terms Usually, administrative terms used in a country are a reflection of how a nation is administered and governed. Administrative terms may, for instance, indicate that a nation is organised in a traditional or modern way. Furthermore, they may be ‘transparent’ or ‘opaque’ (Newmark, 1988:99). By ‘transparent’ we mean those terms whose meaning is easily detectable. In contrast, ‘opaque’ terms refer to those terms whose meaning is not detectable on the surface. It is obvious therefore that if terms are not ‘transparent’ the translator faces a serious challenge in making terms accessible and meaningful to the target readership.

Zabus, Chantal. ” Petersen and Rutherford 19–30. D . N . M khize The Portrayal of Igbo Culture in Zulu: A Descriptive Analysis of the Translation of Achebe’s Things Fall Apart into Zulu T hings Fall Apart (Achebe, 1958) is a classic in African literature written in English, and is now almost synonymous with the African Writers Series, together with the other two texts which form a trilogy, No Longer at Ease (1960) and Arrow of God (1964). This article aims at analysing the manner in which Igbo culture as reflected in administrative and religious terms in Things Fall Apart, the source text (ST), has been transferred to Kwafa Gula Linamasi (Msimang, 1995), the target text (TT).

For example, before going to war Igbos are expected to consult with the Oracle of the Hills and the Caves as this would ensure them success (Achebe, 1958:9). The Oracle pleads to Chukwu on their behalf. In his translation Msimang (1995:10) translates the Oracle of the Hills and the Caves as uSomlomo kaMvelingqangi. USomlomo is a Zulu word used to refer to someone who speaks on behalf of someone else, for instance, a Speaker of Parliament is also known as uSomlomo wephalamente. In contrast, The Portrayal of Igbo Culture in Zulu 35 uMvelingqangi, as already mentioned, is a traditional Zulu word for God.
