Exercise 15: Watch a documentary “Victorian Pharmacy” and prepare a short report on the topic.



In the period of the development of pharmacy from early Victorian times, round about the 1840s, through to the late 1800s Victorian Pharmacies were often the only accessible and affordable source of healthcare for a population often unable to afford the services of doctors or other health professionals.

The early pharmacists’ willingness to take on almost anything to provide their public with what they wanted was incredible. Medicines in those days may have been limited and crude by today’s standards but even then pharmacists, as they are today, were acknowledged as experts in the use of herbs, plant extracts and chemicals, not to mention countless other everyday essentials to Victorian life. Life was extremely difficult then. There were plenty of diseases around to be fought off. Cholera was a major killer at the time and there were serious sewerage problems in cities such as London. Luckily this was the period when carbolic acid was developed as a byproduct of coal production.

Other major issues of the Victorian era included the shocking number of arsenic-related deaths, which in turn led to the introduction of the Arsenic Act in 1851 creating the first Poisons Register.

It wasn’t only medicines that were provided by Victorian pharmacists, they dispensed plenty of other things, including perfumes, for example. Pharmacists had expertise in essential oils and used to blend their own perfumes. They supplied shaving equipment, too. Why? Because they not only made shaving preparations but also shaved their customers. “Why reading glasses and dental care, you may wonder? Pharmacists used to make tooth powders, extract teeth, test eyes and fit glasses. Indeed, the Pharmaceutical Society was formed decades before the equivalent dentistry and optics bodies.

And the list goes on – photography, sexual health, dermatologicals and so on. Whatever the public wanted, pharmacists bought, made or created a service for it.

Exercise 16: Before translation make a back-ground analysis: Generic medicines, brand-name medicines


Exercise 17:

Фирменные названия (brandnames / trademarks)

При переводе фирменных названий и сходных с ними имен собственных решающими являются два обстоятельства: первое – насколько важным для содержания является сохранение в тексте этого фирменного название, и второе – известно оно или нет носителям ПЯ (переводящего языка, языка перевода).

Фирменные названия приборов, машин, изделий и материалов следует транслитерировать и заключать в кавычки, причем первое слово названия следует писать с прописной буквы.

Наименования иностранных учреждений обычно переводятся на русский язык с использованием эквивалентных наименований на русском языке. Первое слово и имена собственные пишутся с прописной буквы. В наименованиях важнейших международных организаций все слова пишутся с прописной буквы.

Названия торговых марок при переводе с английского на русский язык, в основном, не переводятся, а транслитерируются.

ТРАНСЛИТЕРАЦИЯ – формальное побуквенное воссоздание исходной лексической единицы с помощью алфавита переводящего языка. Например, Shakespeare – Шекспир: русская форма имени следует частично правилам чтения английского написания звуков, а частично трансформирует их в приблизительно похожие – в тех случаях, когда в русском языке нет фонетических аналогов (английские дифтонги превращаются в монофтонги э, и – по начальному элементу дифтонга).
