Abstract [en]

When teaching material is translated into another language, text-based examples can lose their significance, analogies may be meaningless in the local culture, and there may even be problems with physical access to the material. We consider principles for addressing these issues so that teaching examples can be made accessible to a diverse range of languages and cultures. We present a case study of the adaptation of a free resource for school outreach and lecture demonstrations (csunplugged.org), looking at issues encountered for Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Swedish translations. These represent a large range of languages, types of alphabets and cultures.

Abstract [sv]

När undervisningsmaterial översätts kan text baserade exempel förlora sin mening, analogier bli meningslösa, alfabet oförenliga, etc. Vi fokuserar på några principer för att undervisningsexempel ska fungera i helt olika språk och kulturer. Vi presenterar en fallstudie baserad på material som är fritt tillgängligt från CSunplugged.org. Det engelska materialet har anpassats till japanska, kinesiska, koreanska och svenska förhållande.
