Interpretation

Language interpretation is the facilitating of oral or sign-language communication, either simultaneously or consecutively, between users of different languages. The process is described by both the words interpreting and interpretation. Translation studies deal with the systematic study of the theory, the description and the application of language interpretation and translation.

While reading is easy...comprehension is key. Sometimes rereading posts and comments later...do you find your view may be different?

Ever wonder what all those advertising terms really mean? * NEW - Different colour from previous design.  ALL NEW - Parts are not interchangeable with previous design.  FOOLPROOF OPERATION - No provision for adjustments.  ADVANCED DESIGN - The advertising agency doesn't understand it.  REDESIGNED - Previous flaws fixed - we hope.  YEARS OF...[Show All] DEVELOPMENT - We finally got one to work.  MAINTENANCE FREE - Impossible to fix.  MEETS ALL STANDARDS - Ours, not yours.  SOLID-STATE - Heavy as hell.* Link: http://www.bizcommunity.com/Jokes/196/12.html [Show Less]
Have You Ever Seen Such Signs?  <b>* On a ski lift in Taos, NM: 'No jumping from the lift. Survivors will be prosecuted.'  Official sign near door: Door Alarmed. Handprinted sign nearby: Window frightened.  Road sign seen on the island of Cyprus (translation of the Greek): 'Caution: Road Slippery from Grapejuice'  A sign advertising a Company wide skiing race: Let's see who can go downhill the fastest. Sign in King's Canyon in California. 'Slow Parking Ahead'  A billboard seen next to the highway, travelling from Johannesburg International Airport into town. An Ad for BMW showing a photo of a BMW 328i convertible with the roof and all the windows down. The caption reads:' Our hardware runs better without WINDOWS!!!'  Two signs found on top of one another in a country kitchen several years ago: Restrooms to the left. Please wait for the hostess to seat you. Seen in a health food store. "Shoplifters will be beaten over the head with an organic carrot" "Children left unattended will be towed at parents expense."  I went to a little hole in the wall restaurant: the sign read: Women are not served here. You have to bring your own. </b>* Link: http://www.ahajokes.com/ads08.html

Acts 2.38 ?   An elderly woman had just returned home from an evening church service when she realized there was an intruder in her home.   Seeing that he was in the act of robbing her home of its valuables, the lady yelled "Stop! Acts 2:38!"  Hearing her, the burglar stopped dead in his tracks and stood motionless. The woman calmly called the police and explained what was going on.  As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar, "Why did you just stand there? All the lady did was yell a Bible verse at you."  "Bible verse?" said the burglar, "She said she had an axe and two 38's!"  https://www.bluehorizonprints.com.au/bhp-images/wp-content/uploads/house-alarm-systems.gif

How Would You Cure Your Employee's Cold ?  A man calls his boss and tells him he’s got a splitting headache and a bad cold, so he’ll have to miss work. The boss, interested in making their performance figures for the quarter, pushes his employee to come in despite his condition.  “Here’s what I always do,” the boss says. “I head home and have my wife pour me a bath, the hottest I can stand. I get into the bath and have her gently wash me with a sponge while I sip on some tea. Once she finishes, I then take her to the bedroom and make love to her. After that, I feel like a million bucks!”  “Okay,” his employee says. “I’ll give it a shot.”  Just after lunch, the employee walks into work. The boss walks over to his desk, smiling smugly.  “I told you,” says the boss.  “You were so right,” the employee responds. “That worked like a charm. Oh, and you have a NICE house!”
