Sworn translators always stay between the institutional and the independent translation, dealing with problems caused not only by the content of the source document, but also by the requests of their clients on the one hand, and the particular final recipient of the translations, such as the public institutions, on the other hand. The aim of this paper is to analyze several cases where the skopos of the translation (Vermeer, 1978; Reiss & Vermeer, 1984) is determined differently by the initiator and the recipient. A variety of materials, collected during our professional practice, have been used as reference corpus in order to determine whether or not it is possible to find any general solutions to deontologic and practical problems caused by this discrepancy.
