Abstract

The aim of this paper is to discuss the relationships between translation and contemporary theories of language. It is argued that these theories are still attached to the story of Babel: First, diversities are considered second to what is universal. Second, the speaker is considered as one who speaks one language. Third, There is a presupposed distinction between expression and content. Translation as an argument against these theses will therefore open up for a new theory of language.
