Translating Unicef Publications - Progress for Children. A Report Card on Water and Sanitation

UNICEF is one of the most important international organizations and certainly the world leader as to issues concerning childhood. In particular, UNICEF works to improve the condition of children throughout the developing countries such as various African countries or some Asian countries.
In the present work I translate Progress for Children. A Report Card on Water and Sanitation (2006), a publication released by UNICEF to discuss progress made in the field of health care related to water sanitation and hygiene. The report card is originally published only in English, French and Spanish – the basic working languages in the Organization - and has no Italian version.
Then I analyze the first section of this report card.
The first chapter of the present work is fully devoted to describing what UNICEF is and does, that is all the aspects of this Organization such as its actions and priorities, its partners, its economic asset, as well as the why and the wherefore of UNICEF activities. The second chapter introduces UNICEF publications with a focus on the publications concerning “Water and Sanitation”. In the third chapter a translation-oriented analysis of a sample from the source text is carried out on the basis of Halliday’s Systemic Functional Grammar. Finally, in the fourth chapter the translation strategies used are reported and discussed.
An Appendix reports the complete source text and its translation.
