Some of the biggest challenges in translation stem from expressions that exist only in one language. Generally speaking, these terms or idioms relate to a specific country or region and its cultural life. They can express even complex concepts, and are rich in meaning. Such expressions often have no precise transpositions: they can only be understood in another language by paraphrasing or using an analogy. Most of the time a literal translation does not express the true meaning of a saying, and the results can be very funny. Take a look!
