When white becomes black

Monday, August 03, 2009

So VIVAnews has translated a PerthNow’s story about some Australian expatriates in Jakarta having a breakfast tribute at the recently bombed JW Marriott hotel (to show the world “they are not afraid”).

Unfortunately, translating is not the only thing VIVAnews did to the story.

This is one of the paragraphs of the original:
Those attending the morning gathering on Sunday wore red and white ribbons on their chests to show their determination that life in Indonesia will not change.
It is translated into:
Para peserta mengenakan pita merah dan hitam di dada mereka, sebagai simbol kebulatan tekad bahwa kehidupan mereka tak akan berubah gara-gara aksi teroris brutal. Mereka bertekad tetap tinggal dan berbisnis di Indonesia.
I think it’s totally okay to translate a story. But to change the fact? It’s totally not okay dude...
