Translation in an International Perspective

Cultural Interaction and Disciplinary Transformation

Edited By Antoine Cazé and Rainer Lanselle

Translation scholars have for a long time been arguing in favor of a shift in paradigms to redefine the relationship between translation and the spreading of knowledge. Although a substantial share of worldwide knowledge is conveyed thanks to translation, the effects of this state of affairs upon the ways in which knowledge is actually built are all too rarely taken into account. This is particularly the case in the humanities.
The papers presented in this volume fall into three thematic categories – cultural transfer, terminology and literature. The authors are all scholars in the humanities, and some of them are also translators. They analyze the effects of translation in diverse domains such as the intercultural exchanges among Far Eastern countries, and between Asia and the West; the constitution of terminologies; clinical practices in psychoanalysis; and the impact on the definition of literary genres.
Each contribution shows how the act of translation is an integral part of the humanities, producing effects which may often be unforeseen and surprising but are always occasions for innovation.
This volume contains contributions in English and French.

De la fiction à la non-fiction : traduire les textes de sciences humaines

Introduction

La plupart des traducteurs professionnels travaillant sur des textes de sciences humaines et sociales conviendront qu’ils ont à faire face à des problèmes de traduction d’un autre ordre que ceux qu’ils rencontrent lorsqu’ils traduisent des textes littéraires, ou textes de “fiction”. Le terme de “fiction” renvoie à cette faculté proprement humaine de “faire comme si”, de raconter des histoires (avec la connotation négative que cette expression peut prendre en français) ; il est étroitement lié à notre faculté d’imagination et aux rapports particuliers que les humains entretiennent avec ce qu’ils appellent la réalité. Nous savons, en outre, que la réalité n’est pas, avec la fiction, dans un pur et simple rapport d’opposition.
