The Secret Life of Tea: Why Translation is More Than Words

Have you ever thought about how tricky it can be to translate a seemingly simple phrase like “a nice cup of tea“? ☕️ 

Believe it or not, translation isn’t always a straightforward swap of words.

Why? It’s all about culture.

To a Brit, “tea” means a cosy break, a moment of pure relaxation. In other cultures, it might simply be a hot drink.

Translation is more than words; it’s about capturing meaning. 

A skilled translator delves into the cultural context to find the perfect match in another language.

Think of it like detective work. Translators are like cultural detectives, finding the hidden meanings to make sure your message works in any culture.
