This online module was prepared in partnership with Macquarie University.
When a translation is commissioned in a professional context, and because the translator is one agent among several others in the translational act, the concepts of loyalty and fidelity of the translator may be raised. But what do they really cover and entail? What constraints and considerations do professional translators have to deal with when deciding on a translation strategy to complete their work?
An overview of the translator’s job
Concepts of loyalty, mediation, trust
Concepts of fidelity, equivalence, untranslatability
Many real-life examples to discuss the translator’s leeway
T&I practitioners and users of T&I services who have an interest in understanding what a translator’s job entails, who the different participants in the translational process are, and what elements professional translators have to juggle with when making choices and deciding on strategies.
