However, it is difficult to imagine a dumb civilization, unable to sing to express its feelings. Therefore, it is the song, which has often given voice to the collective passions in the great moments of labor, trust (idealism), and pleasure.</em></p> <p><em>When we talk about mythology, as a worldview phenomenon, we can say that it is very ancient, and has always been subject to the historical specifics and demands of different epochs. So, mythology has undergone changes not only in the informative and narrative level of the subjects but also in the ideological interior, changes which will be the object of study.</em></p> <p><em>Knowing that mythology is a specific ideology, as is poetry and art, on which the epochs have left their indelible marks we will undoubtedly treat mythology very carefully from this perspective, as well. Man, in the face of nature and vain beliefs, has always felt weak, so this weakness has pushed him to create various rites, by virtue of which he tried to influence the mysterious forces, to bring him good fortune throughout the year.</em></p> Atdhe HYKOLLI, Lirak KARJAGDIU Copyright (c) 2020 Rating Academy Ar-Ge Yazılım Yayıncılık Eğitim Danışmanlık ve Organizasyon Ticaret Ltd.

Emperors provided influence and power on the people by using mythology and literature. In this article, firstly, the issue of using mythology and literature as an ideological element was mentioned. Then, in the period of Emperor Augustus, how mythology turned into an ideological tool and how this case was visualized in art and coins were studied. How this propaganda, that became concrete with mythology, was strengthened with literature was explained. Examples from the works of Augustus period’s authors were examined. How these authors supported the ideological image and policies of Augustus was revealed. As a result, the background of the use of mythology and literature as ideological elements was examined.</em></p> Işık ALBASAN Copyright (c) 2020 Rating Academy Ar-Ge Yazılım Yayıncılık Eğitim Danışmanlık ve Organizasyon Ticaret Ltd.

Nevertheless, people who deal with translation and interpreting are aware that this assumption does not hold. The fact that translation is not just a linguistic procedure but is socially constructed and oriented just like language itself, is gradually accepted. Hence, translators are becoming fully aware that training is necessary just as in any other profession if one wants to keep up with global changes. One of the major challenges in translation and interpretation in Kosovo is the inadequate translation quality of texts as well as poor simultaneous and consecutive interpreting during conferences, training, and other important events. However, in the case of written translations, the translator has the chance to intervene, correct, and proofread the text through proofreaders, which is not a touch that can be done during oral interpretation. This does not mean that interpretation has any lower stakes; poor oral interpretation can even result in the failure of an event, e.g. interlocutors may misunderstand each other or convey an inaccurate intellectual or professional picture of the speakers. Therefore, this paper explores the challenges and solutions of translation in Kosovo, in general, and oral interpretation, in particular.</em></p> Lirak KARJAGDIU, Seniha KRASNIQI Copyright (c) 2020 Rating Academy Ar-Ge Yazılım Yayıncılık Eğitim Danışmanlık ve Organizasyon Ticaret Ltd.
