Burmese Translation for the word "client"

Posted on 8 July, 2012 at 21:17
Burmese translation for the word "client"
 
Sometimes a simple word can't get you move and you probably get stuck in the middle of your translation. You thought you know the appropriate translation for the word but in fact when you translate it, you find yourself that you are not very happy with it completely. Because you thought that the translated word, which may be common in Burma, you put in is not very closely related with the context of the source document. In this situation, how do you feel? The word I am referring to is "Client." We do not have many relevant translations for this word. Please consider the following:
 
·         Client for a Law Firm
·         Client for a retail outlet
·         Client for Hospital or Clinic
·         Client for Libraries
·         Client for resettlement services providers.
·         Client for natural therapies and etc,
 
Would you use the same translated word for all of the above services? Burmese word for the client is common for the client of law firm. Another Burmese word for this is for the client of retail outlet. In the case that you translate a letter or a brochure for the other service providers, how would you translate "client" ? For example: A physiotherapist writes a letter to his client for an appointment, and the letter starts with "Dear client." How would you translate "Dear client"?

Agree totally. And yes, there are quite a few words like that which you find it difficult to translate to convey its proper meaning. As for the word "client" I personally still use "wun-soung-hmu ya-shi-thu" (and for service procvider: "wun-soung-shin") because I believe that in most cases, this word suffices. As we would all agree, for law firms: "a-hmu-their", retailers "phauk-their", for medical related: "lu-nar" (what else could it be?), library: "a-thin-thar" (I dont think libraries use the word 'client", they use "members"). In any case, the western world has evolved a lot in the last few decades, so much so that the meanings and concepts behind social, political and business transactions have changed resulting in coining of fancy and sophisticated words, generic words. (people are now even commodified):-) But we also need to consider how practical or meaningful are these words in other parts of the world especially in societies where social justice, law and order are practically non-existent? Take the word "ombudsman": the word can be an oxymoron in a lot of countries! Well this is my two bob's worth :-) Good work Tony...

Just one more thing...we must of coure=se try our level best to translate a word to convey its proper meaning but we need to be careful too, not to end up with an "anglicised" word - burmese words but not meaning much. When we are translating, we need to imagine that the end readers would be not only from Australia but also possibly from Myanmar as well as Myanmar people residing in other countries - would they really understand what I have translated?

Hi Saleem,

I know you have heap of experience in Burmese translation. Could you share some other words that we may have the same scenario? Thanks, Tony Latt

Some words that spring to mind are: access, committment, profile (e.g. school), profiling (e.g. racial), sexual orientation, dedication. My main cocnern here is to have an agreed standard amongst the translators.Cheers.
P.S. Perhaps it would be an idea where we could maintain a central depository for words like these, which all of us could consult when necessary?

Good idea, Saleem. We have a lot of English terms that have no unique corresponding translation in Burmese, so one interpretation of a translator may lead to a different view for other translators.In this case uniformity among the translators is most desired. Your idea is very good. Recently I have edited a translation in which a term " Access and Equity" the translation of which is not wrong but I am not very happy with it because I thought it is not closely related to the context of the subject and that I thought we still have other better option for it. In this scenario we need a heated discussion among translators. So how can we make it happen?

Though there is a close relation among languages but a word means different in different area so knowing about the entire theme of the languages is very interesting to me. It's an awesome idea of checking out their culture, too. Thanks for an interesting detail about the meaning of the word 'client'.

The desire to make money online through the use of social platforms is perfectly normal. In order to achieve this quest, an optimal blogging system is required. A sound blogging system would allow its user adopt a systematic approach to quench his blogging endeavors.

If you are running a blog make sure that you give your audience everything they crave in order to keep them coming back. There is nothing worse than a blog that is going stale or that does not provide anything new or valuable for the readership. There are many ways in which to do this but the following tips should help.
