This paper analyzes some peculiarities of song translation in contexts in which neither performers nor recipients are music professionals, and the aim of teaching music is paired by the aim of sharing the cultural aspects of the music and lyrics chosen. Focusing on the "grey zone" between translation and adaptation, the paper explores some technical and cultural challenges of such work, especially when the original languages (Nordic languages and German) have very different conventions from the target language (Italian).

Abstract

This paper analyzes some peculiarities of song translation in contexts in which neither performers nor recipients are music professionals, and the aim of teaching music is paired by the aim of sharing the cultural aspects of the music and lyrics chosen. Focusing on the "grey zone" between translation and adaptation, the paper explores some technical and cultural challenges of such work, especially when the original languages (Nordic languages and German) have very different conventions from the target language (Italian).
