You’re probably like me a fan of Netflix platform.

Watching your favourite series alone or with your family, whenever you want, choose the language in which you want to watch it, it is so cool. Netflix remains very useful for language learning. Who hasn’t dreamed of learning Spanish with La casa de papel, or English with Suits?

The translator is responsible for operating what we can called strategic translation choices. So when Robert De Niro says in Taxi driver: “Did you fuck my wife?”, Netflix translates this as: “Did you have the audacity to make love to my girlfriend? “. The translator must set the right tone. Fuck, carajo, caralho, putain, it’s not: damn it!

To be permanently in the sweetened, we end up losing the taste!
