Pour une socio-traduction
Translation Studies (TS) has gained a certain recognition as a domain in its own right. Along with this recognition, come various forms of institutionalization, even though it is difficult to determine its exact nature and scope and different “turns” have been taken (linguistic, textual, psycholinguistic, cognitive, sociological, etc.). We deal first with TS easily borrowing from various other disciplines and we question the types of interdisciplinarity. Then we claim that, in the process of maturation, the time has come for a socio-analysis of the field. In the second part of the paper, we try to understand the possible relationships between translation, the translator and sociology. Finally, we suggest a socio-translation, with three main orientations.
