  1. retranslate

    Retranslate generally refers to the process of translating something that has already been translated into a certain language, back to its original language or into another different language. It involves the interpretation of the meaning of a text in one language — the "source text" — and the production, in another language, of an equivalent text — the "target text" that communicates the same message. It's a way of checking the accuracy of the initial translation or adapting the content to a new audience.
