Translation is a process that requires time and careful thought. A translator must possess the necessary skills to translate an original text into another language. Although at times an arduous task, translation is gaining respect in the United States as cultures combine into one melting pot. The need for efficient translators has increased, especially for those that are knowledgeable in the Spanish Language.
This Thesis Project focuses on the process of translation and is comprised of two parts. First, I translated short stories from both Spanish and English. Then, I reflected on the issues I faced as I translated not only words but content. I was able to draw comparisons between translating into my native language, English and my second language, Spanish. I was also able to reflect on my status as a bilingual as I completed the translations.
