Abstract

A functionalist approach to medical translation in South AfricaThe original emphasis of this study was on the translation of medical texts for professional and academic purposes. This was extended to include informative medical texts for lay people when the government introduced a free primary health care system. Source-oriented translation no longer meets this new requirement and the functionalist model of Christiane Nord is proposed to meet the challenge of translating various medical texts in South Africa. A leaflet on AIDS for lay people; a textbook for students and specialists, and a package insert for medication are used as illustrations. Each requires not only a specific translation method on the macrostructural level but also the use of distinctive translation strategies on the microstructural level in order to fulfil its intended function in the target culture.

Die artikel fokus op die vertaling van mediese tekste vir professionele en akademiese doeleindes asook informatiewe mediese tekste wat ingevolge die regering se beleid van 'n gratis gesondheidsorgdiens vir die leek toeganklik moet wees. Brongebaseerde vertaling voldoen nie meer aan die eis om toeganklikheid nie en daar word voorgestel dat Christiane Nord se funksionalistiese model gebruik word om uiteenlopende mediese tekste in Suid-Afrika te vertaal. 'n Vigs-pamflet vir die leek, 'n teksboek vir studente en spesialiste; en 'n bysluiter by medisyne word as illustrasie gebruik. Elke teks vereis nie slegs 'n spesifieke vertaalmetode op makrotekstuele vlak nie, maar ook eiesoortige vertaalstrategieƫ op mikrotekstuele vlak om te voldoen aan die bedoelde funksie in die teikenkultuur.
