Abstract:

In Translation Changes Everything leading theorist Lawrence Venuti gathers
fourteen of his incisive essays since 2000.

The selection sketches the trajectory of his thinking about translation while
engaging with the main trends in research and commentary. The issues covered
include basic concepts like equivalence, retranslation, and reader reception;
sociological topics like the impact of translations in the academy and the
global cultural economy; and philosophical problems such as the translator’s
unconscious and translation ethics.

Every essay presents case studies that include Venuti’s own translation
projects, illuminating the connections between theoretical concepts and verbal
choices. The texts, drawn from a broad variety of languages, are both
humanistic and pragmatic, encompassing such forms as poems and novels,
religious and philosophical works, travel guidebooks and advertisements. The
discussions all explore practical applications, whether writing, publishing,
reviewing, teaching or studying translations.

Venuti’s aim is to conceive of translation as an interpretive act with
far-reaching social effects, at once enabled and constrained by specific
cultural situations.

This latest chapter in his developing work is essential reading for
translators and students of translation alike.
