The ‘fingerprints’ which translation from English has left on Swedish do not ‘break Swedish rules – but it would be unusual for them to be used in writing 48 Theories of Translation by Swedish authors’, he concludes (Gellerstam, 2005: 207). Also in Sweden, at the University of Lund, Hans Lindquist undertook a study of English adverbials in translation (Lindquist, 1989). In England in 1993 Mona Baker summarized the opportunities offered by corpus linguistics to TS: Large corpora will provide theorists of translation with a unique opportunity to observe the object of their study and to explore what it is that makes it different from other objects of study, such as language in general or indeed any other kind of cultural interaction.

Pym illustrates this with the example of road signs: where ‘slow’ is seen in English, ‘ralentir’ is the equivalent term in French which in turn is the equivalent of ‘slow’ (2010: 12). Pym’s second category is ‘directional equivalence’, by which he means equivalence which is not reciprocal: a back-translation of a TT item or text, for example, would produce a different text from the original ST. If we translate the French ‘fleuve’ with ‘river’ in English, there is no guarantee that a translation of ‘river’ will produce ‘fleuve’ since ‘river’ has two possible translations in French: ‘fleuve’ and ‘rivière’.

Prasad describes this type of Tamil approach as ‘localizing’ texts, in the sense of ‘infusing them with its own spirit’ (2009: 26). This is a view of translation in which the relation between a text and its translation is not one of linearity and subservience but of transcreation in a new cultural and linguistic environment. Gopinathan traces the origins of the transcreation tradition in India back to classical Sanskrit theatre and describes this as a tradition in which ‘the translator enters into the soul of the original author and, regenerating the original work, becomes its re-creator’; as a result ‘transcreations read like new creations’ (2006: 237).
