Abstract:

If it is bilingualism that transfers information and ideas from culture toculture, it is the translator who systematizes and generalizes thisprocess. The translator serves as a mediator of cultures. In thiscollection of essays, based on a conference held at the University ofHartford, a group of individuals - professional translators, linguists, andliterary scholars - exchange their views on translation and its power toinfluence literary traditions and to shape cultural and economicidentities. The authors explore the implications of their views on thetheory and craft of translation, both written and oral, in an era ofunsettling globalizing forces.
