“The Knight of the Panter’s Skin” – Some Issues of the 1st Chapter of the Turkish Translation
The paper discusses the relation of the 1st chapter of the Turkish translation “The Knight of the Panter’s Skin” to the Georgian, original text. Differences have been identified that are due to two different cultural factors. The Turkish translated text confirms an omitting compared to the original text, due to which the dynamics of the translation is softened. The Turkish translation also contains cases of substitution of non-equivalent lexical items with similar words, which is also caused by the cultural differences. In the Turkish translation of “The Knight of the Panter’s Skin” we find an example of non-functional equivalence, which should be allowed without proper background knowledge.
