» The Translator: From prestige to invisibility, across centuries and cultures
By Sara Maghini | Published 08/3/2010 | Art of Translation and Interpreting | Recommendation:
This article evaluates the status of the translator in different cultures and at different times, attempting to answer the following questions: has the translator always been a secondary figure in translation and in society? Was Venuti really the first to write about the condition of the translator and the strategies s/he can adopt to emerge from ‘invisibility’? The focus is on the way in which the figure of the translator has changed throughout the centuries, and includes an evaluation of Venuti’s role in giving a strong, contemporary voice to considerations which were previously fragmentary and diffused in time and space.
