Abstract [en]

Non-professional translations (here in the sense of translations done by a person who has not received training as a translator and does not work as one) can be assumed to differ notably from professional translations in several ways. One is the use of hegding markers before translated words or expressions to indicate that the proposed solution is not a completely accurate rendering. This paper compares the use of the marker "betyder ungefär" (Swedish for "roughly translated"; literally: "means roughly") in non-professional translations, illustrated by examples from Swedish Wikipedia-sites and the website of the Swedish quality newspaper Dagens Nyheter, and professional translations of EU texts. In a concluding discussion the use of hedging markers is related to different models of translation ethics.
