    • 1695 Words
    • 7 Pages

    There are many versions and translations of the bible, just as there are many types of people reading the bible there are many different versions to accommodate the variety of people reading .

    While the trend of translation theory usually differentiates between the original language and its translation, Benjamin treats translation not as a substitution to for the original but rather as an independent, autonomous work of its own. Such a claim proves that the work of art is not restricted to the “original” language, but also goes beyond that to encompass the translation as well.

    From the fortune tellers in the ancient time to weather reporters we have now, people’s curiosities in their nature stimulate them to explore the coming unknowns, and the expectations they put on the future events are usually based on two things: what they wish for and what they know about. Since the former is highly subjective, and the latter is often limited, things don’t always turn out to be what we thought they would be. In “A Temporary Matter”, “Interpreter of Maladies” and “The Blessed…

    Interpreters were families and friends of individuals that knew some of the language and would volunteer their time to assist with translation. Interpreters were used “informally” for all language needs (p.1). America started using language interpreters in the 1930’s after the creation of the United Nations, and even more so after World War II.
