Translations Are Challenging: Metaphrase vs. Paraphrase; Etymology and Semmes; Art vs. Science; and finally, Language Localization – Has the World Actually Changed?
It seems that down through the ages, people like Cicero, Martin Luther, John Dryden, Samuel Johnson,
Johann Gottfried Herder, and Ignacy Krasicki (all translators, in addition to their day jobs) seemed to have much respect, not to mention a viewpoint, concerning the translation of the written word. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Translation.
Take, for example, the word “actual” in English. As one continues to read on the aforementioned Wikipedia page, there are many definitions to consider as actual is translated in a few of the listed languages. And, if you don’t have a migraine yet, read on.
Allow Apex Translation Services to take on such challenges for you……especially with words like actual.

Looking back, the Industrial Revolution, which made its entrance in the world in the nineteenth century, required translations for many workers, trying to interpret manuals, guild benchmarks, and guidelines for machinery operation and maintenance that were unrelentingly complex. The world was rapidly changing, and translations were front and center on a global stage which made this world turn in a modern format. In the same manner today, aren’t we, as a world, changing in almost the same way WITH even more languages, countries, cultures, challenges, and global communities vying for business attention globally?
Now, the High Tech-Communication Age is a large part of everyone’s life. Today, everyone, no matter the economic background, seems to own or have access to a screen which can be logged into, no matter your particular geography at the moment.
