Advanced manner of expression – The art of language

The effort to express oneself in a sophisticated manner remain a current trend. At the moment, youth language is more popular than ever before and is also being adopted by generations who for some years now have already left behind their teenage years. Colloquial trends are being picked up even in areas of society that would have some time ago vehemently distanced themselves from the current slang.

In fact, mastering high-level language has many advantages. This is how improving one’s own vocabulary can for example open up opportunities in personal and professional terms.

On the one hand, a broad vocabulary enables more targeted communication, because possible misinterpretations can be avoided and clarified more quickly. On the other hand, the other party is more likely to receive the message intended by the sender due to a large variance of expression possibilities.

Further language training also opens doors and gates in professional life. Those who know how to express themselves precisely will achieve results more quickly.

Access to sophisticated language and a large vocabulary are essential, especially in the profession of interpreter and translator. The job profile requires not only precise rendering of the content, but also stylistic translation into the target language.

Expansion of the personal vocabulary

Good news: Those who do not feel confident in the spoken language and have not been able to take advantage of educational opportunities in school and family can still fill possible language gaps. Through targeted education it is easy to enrich your own vocabulary. The most important thing here is to read texts by well-versed authors. It is recommended to revert to classics like Thomas Mann and Siegfried Lenz as well as to contemporary authors and rhetoricians. Also, the reading of current daily newspapers and Trade journals are a good place to have a wide pool of vocabulary at your disposal.

The art of translation and interpreting

As a matter of fact, continuous further training is the be-all and end-all of every interpreter and translator. Even sophisticated language and technical language are constantly changing. In order to acquire current as well as older language skills, knowledge and education in various fields are very important for the profession of a translator. Consistent practice in the source and target languages is the greatest guarantee for a successful linguistic exchange. This is how an enormous (linguistic) difference occurs in translations; whether it is the translation of a required personal matter, whether it is interpreting during a visit to the authorities or in communications during an international conference where experts from different cultures and languages encounter each other. Sophisticated language is therefore not to be equated with aloofness, but stands for a cosmopolitan, broadly interested orientation.
