The translation of “drama” usually refers to the translation of short scripts or plays. Short dramas refer to shorter dramatic works, typically ranging from a few minutes to half an hour, and can be single-scene or multi-scene, sometimes used to demonstrate a particular storyline or theme. Translating short dramas requires ensuring that the emotions, cultural background, and expressions in the original work are accurately conveyed in the target language while maintaining dramatic effect and rhythm.

During the process of translating short dramas, the following points need to be considered:

Accuracy: Translation must accurately convey the meaning and emotions of the original work, avoiding ambiguity and misunderstanding.

Fluency: The translation should maintain the dramatic effect and rhythm of the short drama, enabling the audience to smoothly understand the plot and characters.

Cultural adaptability: Translations should consider the cultural background and customs of the target audience, avoiding misunderstandings due to cultural differences.

Preservation of original meaning: Translations should strive to preserve the mood and style of the original work, avoiding excessive modifications or additions.

Aesthetic requirements: Translations should meet the aesthetic requirements of the audience, enabling them to appreciate and accept the artistic expression of the short drama.

Felo Translator can translate various genres of drama, including comedy, tragedy, historical drama, modern drama, costume drama, opera, experimental drama, and children’s drama. During the translation process, suitable translation strategies and expressions should be chosen based on the characteristics of the genre and the audience, ensuring accurate communication and artistic expression of the play in the target language.

For example, when translating ancient dramas, several aspects need special attention. Firstly, ancient dramas often use ancient language and vocabulary, and it’s necessary to maintain the antiquity while ensuring understanding by the target audience. Secondly, ancient dramas reflect the culture and values of ancient society, so cultural backgrounds must be considered in translation to ensure accuracy and fidelity to the original work. Additionally, the dramatic form of ancient dramas may differ from modern ones, so understanding their dramatic characteristics is essential to maintain their dramatic effect and rhythm. Moreover, characters in ancient dramas often have specific historical and cultural backgrounds, and translations should preserve their images and characteristics. Finally, ancient dramas reflect the characteristics of ancient society, and translations should retain the sense of the times to allow the audience to feel the historical atmosphere presented in the play.

When translating modern short dramas, the language style is the first consideration. Modern dramas often use contemporary colloquial language and slang, and it’s essential to maintain the language style and atmosphere of the original work. Secondly, cultural background should be taken into account, as modern dramas typically reflect contemporary social phenomena and cultural characteristics. Translation should consider the cultural background of the target audience to ensure their understanding of the social and cultural implications in the play. Additionally, modern dramas often involve sensitive social issues, so translations should handle them carefully to avoid controversy or misunderstanding. Finally, the portrayal of characters and the characteristics of the times in modern dramas are also key points to consider during translation. Consistency and charm in character portrayal should be maintained, along with the retention of the sense of the times, allowing the audience to feel the era presented in the play.
