Abstract: The notion of text transfer, understood as the material moving of texts across space-time, makes it possible to see the relationships between transfer and translation as not only causal (texts are translated because they are transferred), but also economic (translation is one of several options for the distribution of textual resources), semiotic (translations represent acts of transfer), and epis-temological (attention to transfer affects the way translations are perceived). Awareness of these relationships should open up new possibilities for strongly interdisciplinary research into the nature and history of translation.Résumé: La notion de transfert, défini comme le déplacement matériel de textes à travers l'espace-temps, permet d'envisager les relations entre transfert et traduction selon une perspective causale (les textes se traduisent parce qu'ils sont transférés), économique (la traduction est une forme de distribution des ressources textuelles), sémiotique (la traduction représente un acte de transfert), et épis-témologique (l'examen du transfert influence la perception des traductions). La prise en compte de ces relations devrait ouvrir de nouvelles voies à la recherche interdisciplinaire sur la nature et l'histoire de la traduction.
