Well, I’m starting to get a headache. The transcript above also illustrates one of the difficulties associated with translation. Where a technical term is used in the original language, a literal translation may not correspond to the equivalent English form of the technical term (for example: middle point or mid-point). We have chosen to translate the Japanese wording of the technical term literally, while indicating in parentheses the corresponding English version of the technical term. In this way, the connotations and entailments of the original phrasing and the institutionalized status of the technical term are available for analysis and interpretation.
