Theatrale Kompetenz in der Dramenübersetzung: eine Sammlung historischer Fallstudien
The following chapter investigates the relationship between drama translation and theatre translation and discusses the necessity for theatre specific knowledge when translating for the stage. Using historic case studies of theatre translation, a case for the consideration of the theatre translator as theatre practitioner is made. Furthermore, the presentation and acknowledgement of the theatre translator in historic as well as contemporary practice allows us to consider not only the positioning of the translator within creative practice but also the power relationship between cultures and languages. Thus, any educational programme for translators wishing to focus on the translation of both dramatic and theatrical texts needs to take account of the specialist knowledge necessary. It is argued that theatre translation, as opposed to literary and indeed dramatic translation, is a communal act which cannot exist in isolation and outside of the theatre-making process.
Key words: Theatre translation, theatrical exchange, Faust, Henry Irving, Herbert Beerbohm-Tree, translation as a communal act
