Ongoing thread on #HansVermeer's 1984 (Skopos Theory explained), on #Translation. Let me start with some of my favourite quotes:
"Language is a system" (p. 19)—>Hence, discussing about how to translate a single word is a misunderstanding of the way language works. 1/
In HV's words: "Simple signs can be combined to form complex signs, e.g. words form sentences, and sentences form texts. A sequence of simple signs is not just a collection of signs but a new sign of higher rank […] The formation of super-signs is language-specific. 2/
A word in one language can correspond to a phrase in another" (p.19).
"Signs delimit, determine, condition and define each other's meanings. Signs form language- and culture-specific fields"(p. 20) 3/

As a member of @ScienceAU, Victoria's Science Society supports the #research sector's ten pledges, seeking commitments from candidates for the Australian Federal #Election2022. Let's run through them all, shall we? #auspol #ausvotes #AusVotes2022
Let's punch *at* our weight in #research funding, at least. It's a matter of investing in our brainpower as a resource for other sectors to draw on, & sustain tertiary #education as one of major exports. #auspol #ausvotes #AusVotes2022
We argue #research #translation is about "bench to #community" - #industry is a big part of that. Public funding established a world class research sector, but the private sector is where we need to build capacity to benefit from that resource. #auspol #ausvotes #AusVotes2022

Using OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) Tools & Techniques for war crimes confirmation.
Case 👉: 2 elderly civilians killed in their car in Ukraine, at least one of them was handicapped.
#warcrimes #OSINT #opensource #War #Ukraine #civiliankillings 1/23
Example of the video from a tweet posted by @ignis_fatum on 28/02/22 at 10:36pm, the video shows the aftermath of an exploded vehicle with 2 bodies inside (elderly couple) #OSINT #Ukraine #Vehicle 2/23
The Video + audio were pulled using YT-DL. Having the video file means better analysis capabilities, extracting the audio may help with understanding what is going on and what the situation is, what the person filming is saying. #videoanalysis #audioanalysis #OSINT #ukraine 3/23

It's a Mistake

"Mass spectrometry we confirmed (S1 protein) with the peptide sequencing
The one thing we found with the post vaxx (Long Haulers) that we didn’t find with the (convalescent) Long Haulers was that we found MUTANT S1 and we found S2 proteins…in the monocytes.>
The amino acid sequences, in some of these patients...the AMINO ACIDS ARE DIFFERENT than what the S1 is usually coding for….could be making antibodies that are defective.
We didn’t find the mutant S1 or the S2 in the Long Covid never-been-💉 group." Dr Yo @ 50:00

mRNA translation into amino acid peptides.
1/ When the messenger mRNA exits the nucleus, it will be loaded into a organelle called the ribosome. These little factories take the RNA blueprint and use it to build a protein.
2/ Here we introduce the concept of the Codon. The DNA is made up of 4 bases with Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine and Thymine. They have to encode 20 different amino acids. To do so, the DNA uses a codon. Its a combination of 3 nucleotides.

1/47 #Ukraine #Poetry #Translation- a long thread on my PEN award winning translations of Bohdan Ihor Antonych and why this great poet matters to us all
2/47 I first stumbled across Antonych in a musty Soviet edition of his work I purchased in 1993, during my first trip to Ukraine. The book was an impulse buy, partly because I was sickened by what I encountered in my ancestral homeland. Hyperinflation had transformed my auntie

Looking for ways to bring discussions of #racism in your #science classes? Some ideas I use in class & in talks e.g. genome-wide sequencing studies, databases are skewed. Must be accounted for when extrapolating these data (e.g. personalized medicine)… 1/n

The problem living in multilingual country like India is that, every region have it's blanket dimension, linguistically excluded from the rest of the country. A person living in one region of the country may never understand the geo local news, articles, poems & songs from
another region of the country due to linguistic difference. Any solution to a problem is at the mercy of that region's collective intellects segregated virtually by a language. Maybe in the near future, translations & comprehension will further 'soak' itself in
the information technology literally. The future of Accessible Design in IoT will be measured by visual comprehension beyond borders & measured by linguistic comprehension within borders, specially in the multilingual sub-continent like India.

Ever say to yourself: “I know there’s a word that comes next to liable, but I can’t think of which one…”?

Ever want to pull up tens of real-world examples of specific clauses (severability, forum selection, etc.)?

Then #corpora are for you.

#xl8 #translation #lawtwitter #law
Don't be fooled by the complicated name.

In reality, a #corpus is just a collection of texts.

All it takes is a simple search interface to comb through thousands of pages in just instants.
The search results give you an in-context list of how real-world drafters actually use the term you searched for.

The BYU corpora are good examples:

2⃣ BNC (G.B. English):
