Translation involves the transfer of meaning of a text from one language to another for the attention of a specific audience. BRAVO covers most language pairs between its major languages (e.g. German- English, French- Portuguese).

Full or for-publication translations aim to transfer the full complexity of the original text into the translated version, and can be divided into three (3) categories: Poetic, Literary, and Non-Literary.
