Translation and the Formation of Cultural Identities.
Venuti, Lawrence
Current Issues in Language and Society, v1 n3 p201-17 1994
Discusses the power of translation to construct representations of foreign cultures while simultaneously constructing domestic subjects. Foreignizing and domesticating are the two main translation strategies. This article shows how translation forms particular cultural identities, maintains them with a relative degree of coherence, and creates possibilities for cultural change. (35 references) (Author/CK)
