Application of Formal and Dynamic Equivalence to Chosen Press Releases Published by the European Commission Related to the Issue of the Coronavirus Pandemic

Marcelina Pietryga

Abstrakt


The aim of this article is to analyse the scope of formal and dynamic equivalence in three press releases published by the European Commission in April 2020. The discussed press releases refer to the issue of the coronavirus pandemic and various measures taken by the Commission as a response to the crisis caused by the pandemic. Simultaneously, a particular attention is placed on the influence of the above-mentioned types of equivalence on the message covered by the press releases. Moreover, the study is based on three languages English, German and Polish. As the research shows, the two types of equivalence may apply to various aspects of texts introducing a wide range of effects to the translation. Whereas formal equivalence is usually present in shorter forms, dynamic equivalence corresponds to larger units of text. Additionally, it has been proved that the two types of equivalence are not applied in both translations to an equal extent
