  1. Hi, I am struggling with a written assignment in Language A: Literature and I have faced a significant issue, while the deadline is approaching. Is it allowed to compare a translation of a poem (to a language that it is taught in) with its original version? Is it allowed to prepare written assignment just on one poem and its translation? I have chosen the following topic: "About different ways of presenting the major character in „Carcass”. A comparative analysis of the original poem by Baudelaire with its translation." I am comparing the translation of a French poem with the original work and the purpose of this comparison is to evidence that the translator lost - to certain extent - the sense of the original text. Is it a properly chosen topic for a written assignment in Language A: Literature? Can a written assignment be a comparison of a translation with an original piece of literature? Can one poem by the subject of analysis? I would very much appreciate anyone help me to answer this question!! Joanna
  2. Hello, I am currently working on my FOA task. I have chosen the theme of translation and will be discussing how the meaning can be lost or modified when translating a text from a language to another. Unfortunatly, i am having a hard time finding a primary source, i thought about using one of shakira's songs (dare? in english and spanish). Do you have any other ideas? Thank you! PLEASE HELP
  3. Hey everyone, I'm taking French A Language and Literature HL and we're finishing up the Written Task 2 - the essay response to one of the six prescribed questions in the Lang Lit Subject Guide. I chose to do the question: How and why is a social group represented in a particular way? and need to translate it. Does anyone have the French language copy of the subject guide with the questions in French? I can't find it online. If so, could you please tell me how they phrase that question? It's question 1 in the Power and privilege section. Thanks!!
  4. Hi. I am doing IB in Poland with Polish A1 HL and have exams in May 2015 (so I'm still in the first grade). Recently our teacher told us to write an "interpretation commentary" based on one text. I don't really know how it would be called in English. I've read the subject outline but it didn't help. I found only information about an essay, literary commentary (this must be it but I'm still not sure), guided literary analysis and written assigment. And this is already for exams, not a homework. Does anybody know what "interpretation commentary" stands for? We talked like about what happens in the text, where it is and how the author uses language, what is the narration type and his approach to characters (or to the situation in the text, I'm not sure). Thanks for help
  5. hey everyone, I'm looking for precise answer to this: explain the importance of complementary base pairing in replication, transcription and translation. i've been looking for exact answer and found only informations that don't fully answer it, or I'm not sure if they do. thanks
  6. Hi. I was wondering if it matters what edition you use of the novel you are supposed to write about. I am writing my essay in Swedish A1 Literature and I'm using the saga "Njals saga" which is a translation. I got one book from school but I'd like to use another version of the same book because it has sub titles for different chapters which are really useful. Therefore I was wondering whether they were any regulaions for this? ...because it is a translation the novel is not quite the same.
