Theoretical and Descriptive Studies In the course of the last two decades or so, transla­ tion has gradually come to be viewed as a legitimate object of scientific investigation. Generally,speak­ ing, the most important recent contributions to translation studies have been made in the field of translation theory.

Consequently, translational relationships may be de­ fined as either formal or functional on either level. The important methodological implication of this asser­ tion is that terms of the same type and rank be ap­ plied to both members of the coupled pair, namely on the basis of the invariant which they are actually found to have in common. (For further methodological implications see Toury 1980:89-111,) Of course, every textual-linguistic segment, 35 whether the representation of the 'problem' or of the 'solution', is at once a set of elements of a lower order and an element in another entity of a higher order (see, for example, Roman Jakobson's classic presentation of the issue of 'parts and wholes in language’, Jakobson 1963).

And it will be easy to draw provisional conclusions about individual fragments. These conclusions can be used at a second stage to guide the analysis of other extracts. Does the translator add or delete paragraphs, words, images, literary features, etc. throughout the text, or only in certain passages? If the latter, how to explain the discrepancies? In order to reach a more general and panoramic view of the translational method, we can bring in fragments in which new difficulties appear, in order to check our hypothesis or so as to reconstruct in more detail the exact priorities which govern the translator’s activity.
