Peculiarities of scientific translation perfomance
Today, availability of many foreign scientific sources significantly simplifies and accelerates the process of exchange of scientific information, data about the latest achievements of the global science, and it is absolutely clear that scientific translation plays an increasingly important role in social communication of scholars and experts.
However, while performing such translation one should be aware that scientific style is characterized by consistent sentence structures, meaningful intensity, semantic accuracy, clear objectivity of material presentation and, as a rule, lack of emotions.
To implement all the features of the scientific style in practice, terminological vocabulary and complex grammatical structures are required. Thus, for translating scientific and sci-tech texts one should use standardized language patterns. Scientific and sci-tech texts, as well as their translation, do not allow for ambiguity of sense and distortion of used terms and concepts. Therefore, scientific text translation requires, above all, clarity of presentation given maximum compliance of the target and source texts. Only a professional who has both an expertise in the field of scientific text and high stylistic literacy can provide a quality translation.
