Who We Are

barakat Translation: Science, Art, or Handcraft!

As human beings, throughout history, have endeavoured to use various methods of communication: with the intention of utilising the knowledge of other nations and preserving this knowledge for the coming generations.

Language, as the most effective methods of communication, has been employed to satisfy the very need of communication. Many predicaments emerged, chiefly the dissimilarity of languages throughout the world and the gaps in peoples’ diverse cultures. Translation, therefore, in today's world, has come to make communication between different nations with different languages feasible.

Many wonder if translation is a science, or an art. To me, translation is a handcraft based on science and performed with artistic skills. It is a craft of weaving where a translator employs his/her own linguistic knowledge and intellectual faculties to construct a semantic context carrying the same message from the source language.

Adopting the right angle, a good translator applies the reasonable strength interlacing one word with another; to produce the same colour and tone of the original message, without either undue plainness or excessive decoration.

As our logo suggests Barakat Legal Translation epitomises this art.
