» Truth and Consequences
By Robert K Walker | Published 05/12/2009 | Translation Theory | Recommendation:
Translating can be involve simple translation (transmission) or employment of the art of translating. The former is possible for labelling and, when false cognates or incommensurability of expressions are involved, conceptualization. The art of translating is called for when the expressive function is predominant and the referential function secondary or practically non-existent, as in translating postmodernist fiction, and for texts from very different cultures. The translator's work is related to his own views about truth (ontology and epistemology) and those of his clients.
