The goal in translation is to try to translate the meaning of the text from one language to another. The two basic philosophies of translation are formal equivalence and functional equivalence. Meaning comes not only from the individual words, but from phrases, clauses, idioms and grammatical constructions. Languages say the same things using different forms so getting an accurate translation requires interpretation.
