Example 7

Malcolm P. Williams, King Fahd School of Translation, Abdelmalek Essaadi University, Tetuan, Morocco

Example 7 from the author's "Ensuring Fair Play in Inter-Cultural Encounters Do we need a Tertium Comparationis? -- A Translator's Perspective."

But praise be to God. We are God's slaves, and must be pleased with his judgments. But God has not sentenced us to remain slaves. Seek mercy from God, my son. We are and will always remain God's slaves. . . . I meant to say that God has not sentenced us to remain slaves to others, me to remain a slave to Al-Tadlawi and you a slave to that cursed hotel, and Qaddur to his master, until we become a country of slaves. (p.75)
