Abstract:

Both in their sheer breadth and in the detail of their coverage the essays
in Translating Others I & II challenge hegemonic thinking on the subject of
translation. Engaging throughout with issues of representation in a
postmodern and postcolonial world, Translating Others investigates the
complex processes of projection, recognition, displacement and 'othering'
effected not only by translation practices but also by translation studies
as developed in the West. At the same time, the volumes document the
increasing awareness that the world is peopled by others who also
translate, often in ways radically different from and hitherto largely
ignored by the modes of translating conceptualized in Western discourses. 

The languages covered in individual contributions include Arabic, Bengali,
Chinese, Hindi, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Rajasthani, Somali,
Swahili, Tamil, Tibetan and Turkish, as well as the Europhone literatures
of Africa, the tongues of medieval Europe, and some major languages of
Egypt's five-thousand-year history.

While some of the theoretical reflections address contemporary issues,
including research, globalization, ethics and self-reflexivity, others deal
with historical concepts in various parts of the world and with the
relation between translation theory and practice. Neighbouring disciplines
invoked include anthropology, semiotics, museum and folklore studies,
librarianship and the history of writing systems
