L’altérité culturelle: écran, miroir ou alibi? Réflexion autour de quelques traductions françaises de Tom Jones

Publication: Atelier de traduction, 21, p. 133
Publisher:Editura Universităţii din Suceava
Abstract:In this article I aim to show that even when the source and target cultures are close, translators sometimes invoke dissimilarities in order to justify interventions that actually have completely different motivations. Cultural otherness then becomes a mere myth or alibi: translators may perceive or present as culturally different things they simply misunderstand or find disturbing. Under the pretext of cultural difference, they then allow themselves to project whatever they want into the text or to redesign it in accordance with stereotypes.
Key words:French translations of Tom Jones, pseudo-cultural otherness, presumed target reader, cultural context, translator’s intervention
Language: French
