Theories about the Translator
- 585 Downloads
Translators have played a significant role throughout human history: the spread of religions and political philosophies, the development of the world’s languages and of world literature, the conduct of trade and commercial exchange, the waging of war and the drafting of peace treaties, all these would have been impossible without the involvement of translators. In view of the centrality of translation in human affairs throughout the ages it is remarkable that ‘since time immemorial translation has been a practice obscured and repressed by those who carried it out as well as by those who benefitted from it’ (Berman, 1984/1992: 76). It is therefore perhaps not surprising that the theorization of the translator’s role has been a relatively recent phenomenon.
