Example text

3 Obviously, once the (quasi-)novelty of the overall claim that “translation selections are governed by norms” underlying my earlier attempt had worn off, the proposition itself became analytical again (see Section 1 above). g. g. Hermans 1985). It is the idea that translational shifts come in pairs, so that any selection is between modes of behavior which would yield shifts of a diametrically opposite nature, which should have been pursued, but wasn’t, along with the nonrealizability of the problematic “zero-point”.

The selection of one of the two options, which in themselves are given, to the extent that it is ordered, is governed by translational norms. (Toury 1987: 6) This is a 1987 translation of something I wrote in Hebrew more than ten years earlier, in my doctoral dissertation (book version: Toury 1977: 32) — a reservoir of half-baked ideas which may be worth returning to, from time to time. In those days, my main concern was to adapt the notion of “norms” to the specific requirements of TS and apply it to one particular case, and I failed to pursue my own observations in any other direction.

His explicitly stated aim was not to reduce the amount of domestication but rather to increase it. In an interview he stressed that he wanted to produce a text that would be easily understandable for everyone, written in colloquial and contemporary language instead of the scholastic and alienating style of the official translation. To use Schleiermacherian phraseology, he wanted to bring the text to the reader, not the other way round. However, in this particular case the issue of domestication versus foreignization is not a central theme.
