On se trompe souvent : comme le disent les auteurs, «Il est urgent d’en finir avec les stéréotypes du traducteur mécanicien qui substitue des vis millimétrées aux vis en pouces.» Le traducteur est plutôt un professionnel caractérisé à la fois par sa curiosité (les traducteurs changent souvent de domaines de travail, au gré des contrats), par son insertion dans des réseaux nombreux (le traducteur circule dans des cultures diverses) et par sa maîtrise de la langue (des langues, en fait : celle du texte de départ et, surtout, de la langue d’arrivée). Les auteurs s’intéressent d’abord et avant tout à la dimension concrète du travail du traducteur. Où est-il formé ? De quelles associations doit-il faire partie ? Comment est-il payé ? Quels sont ses outils, et notamment ses outils numériques ? Il y a donc une forte dimension pratique à l’ouvrage.
Jean Boase-Beier's Critical Introduction To Translation Studies demonstrates a keen understanding of theoretical and practical translation. It looks to instances where translation might not be straightforward, where stylistics play an important role. Examples are discussed from works of literature, advertisements, journalism and others, where effects on the reader are central to the text, and are reflected in the style. It begins by setting out some of the basic problems and issues that arise in the study of translation, such as: the difference between literary and non-literary translation; the role of language, content and style; the question of universals and specifics in language and¿the notion of context. The book then goes on to focus more closely on style and how it enables us to characterise literary texts and literary translation. The final part looks at the translation of poetry. Throughout, it is conscious of the relationship between theory and practice in translation. This book offers a new approach to translation, grounded in stylistics, and it will be an invaluable resource for undergraduates and postgraduates approaching translation studies.
