Swarovski’s Salt magazine publishes a variety of Swarovski Elements-related news, stories, interviews, etc. of the world’s fashion, jewelry, architecture, design, film and stage. The words and expressions used in their articles, just like Swarovski Element embellished outfits or adornments, “big, brassy, brash, bold”, sparkling “poetic brilliance”.

How to represent the “poetic brilliance” of those fancy words in a completely different language? For me, I tend to employ “instrumental translation”, “which is intended to achieve the same (or similar or analogous) functions as the source text”. Translation is an instrument for communication interaction. To achieve the same or similar functions of the source text, here means the exquisite and colorful language effect, the original form, order, literal meaning might be changed, revised or completely omitted.
