German and English translation used at live rock event
Music may be the universal language, but the translation of lyrics is still an important part of music promotion. English language songs from North American and English artists can be found in the charts and on the radio stations all around the world, and the translation of English language lyrics into other languages is a big industry everywhere. Even at large rock concert events when artists are performing in English, translation is sometimes used on the big screens and in program guides as a way to inform the non-English speaking audience. While international pop music definitely has an English language bias, there is also occasionally the need for German English translation (Übersetzung deutsch englisch) services, to accompany the large German artists that have managed to cross over to an English speaking audience.
Translation is never an easy process, even for related languages like English and German. For translation Spanish German (spanisch deutsch Übersetzung) or other non-Germanic tongues, the challenges are even greater and professional translators are needed to make sure the target text is as accurate as possible. The translation of any language requires the interpretation of the source text, and a working knowledge of the idioms, context, and conventions of the target language. When translation is being applied to music lyrics and other forms of artistic language, these challenges can be even greater, and it is even harder to come up with accurate target material.
For music lovers who have paid lots of money to go and see their favourite bands or pop stars live, an accurate translation in the spirit of the artist is not too much to ask. Concert promoters need to be sure that they have access to the best professional translators available, and that they publish these translations in the best possible way. Many concert promoters sell or give away program guides in multiple languages, and some include the reproduction of song lyrics for those people who can not understand the original language of the artist. Within Europe, the German and English languages are two of the biggest and most widely used, which is the reason why English and German translations are often used at live rock and pop events
