Statistiques de la servitude en matiere de traduction (A Statistical Approach to Translation Constraints).
Vinay, Jean-Paul
Metas, v25 n4 p447-54 Dec 1980
States that sound translation practice rests on a clear understanding of linguistic and cultural constraints combined with a punctilious search for equivalences. Describes various levels of constraint and proposes a statistical investigation of the degree of freedom left to translators, suggesting that most of the translated text results from obligatory selections.
