Creolization and Creativity in Translation

Abstract : By "creolization" and "creativity", I mean that not only is translation an activity, but a translated text is unstable. Unstable because it is read by so many individuals that it lives as many lives as readers. When I have to tackle a text interspersed with Creole elements, or other various linguistic forms, I have to decide on a specific stand that will help to maintain the original cultural element in the translation. So, I propose to investigate the limitations imposed on the language of translation by social, cultural and linguistic preconceptions when a work of fiction is received as belonging to a specific geographical sphere labelled as exotic.
