Conceptual discrepancies of Polish-English terminology. Designing a corpus of microelectronics, telecommunication and computer science for scientific translation

Extract



Abstract: Knowledge is considered to be a contributing factor in the creation of modern societies. Its transfer, referred to as transfer of powers, has helped revolutionise art, religious and legal ideas as well as expanded the powers of imagination in science (Baumann, 1997:728; Montgomery, 2000:2–3). One of genres within the scientific prose that have facilitated this process are research articles, i.e. scientific-specialised texts, which are aimed at other experts (Kozłowska, 2007:31–32). Language and translation have contributed to the popularisation of knowledge. In specialised contexts, apart from words from the general lexicon, users use terms characteristic to their discipline as well as provide knowledge implicitly, which makes the task difficult for translators (Sager, 1990:17–19; Faber Benitez, 2009:108).
