Translators have their say? Translation and the power of agency

Khalifa, Abdel-Wahab ORCID: 2014. Translators have their say? Translation and the power of agency. Representation - Transformation, Lit Verlag.

Full text not available from this repository.


To address the idea of agency in translation is to highlight the interplay of power and ideology: what gets translated or not and why a text is translated is mainly a matter of exercising power or reflecting authority. The contributions in this book serve as an attempt to understand the complex nature of agency in terms of its relation to agents of translation; the role of translatorial agents and the way they exercise their agency in (de)constructing narratives of power and identity; and the influence of translatorial agency on the various processes of translation and hence on the final translation product as well.

Translating across Cultures and Societies - Vol. 10) [Subject: Translation Studies, Linguistics]
