The implications of the recent “bilingual turn” in psycholinguistics have not yet been fully explored in translation studies, even though this field has bilingualism at its very center. This includes, notably, recent advances in the understanding of linguistic relativity. An up-to-date non-deterministic interpretation of linguistic relativity provides, as I will argue in this talk, a novel perspective on several key areas in translation studies. This concerns especially the study of the so-called translation universals, i.e. textual characteristics that are particular to translations. The proposed approach to translation from the perspective of linguistic relativity thus calls for a more concerted study of the translated text as a kind of literature that is inherently different from original writing. Far from approximating what the author may have written in the target language, a translated text carries a particular kind of literary value that could not have arisen from an original writing process.

Translation Studies in Ukraine as an Integral Part of European Context

logaInternational Scientific Conference
(12 – 13 May 2022)
Venue:
Filozofická fakulta UK, Bratislava + online

On the 24 February 5,00 am, the whole world was shocked and shattered by the unimaginably cruel Russian aggression in Ukraine. Such war – in the 21st century and on the European continent – is a direct assault on core European values of democracy, freedom, and the respect for human rights. In the light of the current situation, the organizers of this event as researchers in Translation Studies and practicing translators and interpreters find it their duty to help disseminate the results of research into translation done in Ukraine and by doing so support their deep conviction that Ukraine shares European values and is – and has always been – an integral part of Europe.
The goal of this event is to present the current state of Translation Studies in Ukraine so as to make clear the fact that its culture – literature, art, research, education – is an inherent part of the European context.
