What this all has to do with translations?

still-2608807_1920So you’re all set and ready to go. Enjoy! We will enjoy it too. You may wonder what’s the common thing between this festival and the translation business. Well, there is a lot in common actually. Translation business is not only about the source and target words, you need to have an understanding of the culture and way of living behind the language. This knowledge makes us better in our job, it helps us to provide great translations and to understand our clients better.

The Rainforest World Music Festival gives us an opportunity to expand our cultural knowledge through wonderful music, which is a wonderful language by itself. You don’t need to understand the lyrics to grab an understanding of it, you can just feel the message behind it. So, don’t wonder anymore and join the festival like some of us will do.

Knowing the places, the nations and people we work with is a powerful tool, when talking about languages and translations. But this knowledge is even more important when we’re talking about self-growth and how to enjoy living. However, there is one more fact we discovered about this intriguing event – a common feature between 1-StopAsia and the festival is that they both started at the same year back in 1998.
