Which are they and how to avoid them. Not translating to the local market. Skimping on the post-editing. Confusing machine translation (MT) and computer assisted translation (CAT).
A language is a system of conventional spoken, manual (signed), or written symbols by means of which beings express themselves. The more complex a language is, the more varied its display of functions and characteristics. The typical functions of language include communication, the expression of identity, play, imaginative expression, and emotional release.

Music is not exempt from classic lost in translation problems.
