This thesis consists of five annotated translations, accompanied by a discussion. Excerpts translated from English into Croatian were taken from Avrum Stroll’s work Did My Genes Make Me Do It: And Other Philosophical Dilemmas, Rick Hanson’s book Hardwiring Happiness and Mass Casualties Incidents – A Framework for Planning NHS Scotland, Strategic Guidance for NHS Boards in Scotland issued by NHS Scotland. Excerpts translated from Croatian into English were taken from Tanja Radović’s novel Pitanje Nade and various articles from the Croatian web portal The discussion focused on the translation of gender, more specifically of gender-neutral forms and their translation equivalents. The relationship between language and gender was examined since the difficulties related to gender and translation are various, especially taking into account the fact that the gender systems of Croatian and English differ. This paper indicates the problems related to the translation of gender that arise because of this asymmetrical position. Therefore, translators have to deal with linguistic as well as ideological issues in this case.
