A run-through of a presentation given at the Open Translation Project workshop at TEDGlobal. Get the presentation (PPT) at: http://timetravel.net46.net/Krystian_Aparta_terms.ppt
I talk about why it's important to track down terms when translating, based on a term that I found in the Polish translation of Janna Levin's TED Talk entitled "The Sound the Universe Makes." You can watch the talk (and take a look at the translation) at http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/janna_levin_the_sound_the_universe_makes.html
