about translation

/////material and DRAFT

even if you understand a language translation provides understanding - it is more than a service provided.

translation - as a principle of understanding because you experience the fact that understanding happens inside communication. there is one who speaks, another one who listens and the one who translates. most of the time we speak and translate at the same time, or we listen and have to translate to ourselves so we understand.

translation is not mediation but it mediates - an understanding which is similar to art.
