Towards a dynamic approach to translation: who masters the text?

Abstract : This lecture discusses the various factors implied in the translating act: several actors are involved in the process and their stance may deflect the initial purpose of the translator. The role of publishers and censorship may prevent the introduction of new literatures on the market. Some demands may foreground the problem of stereotypes entailing certain choices or rejections of translation, but also help selecting the type of text to be translated and which will introduce a certain image of the Other. The power of a cultural community over another as well as sex-oriented prejudices are reflected in translation policies. As a consequence, such approaches prevent translators from acting dynamically.
