Significant differences in the use of terminology are the reason for insufficient precision of speech. Regardless of the reasons for this state of affairs, it is worth looking at the most annoying cases of this type and trying to organize the special terms. The paper contains such attempts in relation to Polish terms: ‘przekład’ vs. ‘tłumaczenie’ (both Eng. ‘translation’), ‘ekwiwalencja’ vs. ‘adekwatność’ (‘equivalence’ vs. ‘adequacy‘), equivalent vs. translat, realities vs. names of realities, invariant of translation.</p> 2023-04-06T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Krążenie wiedzy przekładoznawczej: lektury polskich studentów 2023-04-06T15:29:24+02:00 Elżbieta Skibińska <p><strong>CIRCULATION OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT TRANSLATION: POLISH STUDENTS READING LISTS</strong></p> <p>The circulation of knowledge about translation is increasingly coming into the focus of translation studies scholars. Among the various forms of knowledge circulation in this field, in addition to conferences, regular meetings and academic publications, they point to encyclopaedias, anthologies and other collections of foundational texts, as well as textbooks. The present study is based on the reading lists drawn from the syllabuses of translation studies courses featuring in the curricula of various modern languages programmes offered by Polish universities in 2016-2019. It aims to identify the ‘Polish canon’ of translation studies knowledge emerging from the recent pedagogical practice. The analysis of the lists shows a fragmentation of recommended readings, leading to the conclusion that such a canon does not actually exist, and signals a dominance of texts written in English. Another striking finding is a very low proportion of translations, and especially the absence of foreign ‘classics’ of translation studies in Polish.</p> 2023-04-06T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tłumaczenie poezji w perspektywie tłumaczenia specjalistycznego 2023-04-06T15:29:21+02:00 Anna Bednarczyk <p><strong>TRANSLATION OF POETRY IN THE PERSPECTIVE OF SPECIALIST TRANSLATION</strong></p> <p>The article considers literary texts from the point of view of their realisation of the informational function characteristic of specialised texts. The occurrence of such special elements as realia, proper names, terms in literary texts, and especially in poetic works, has also been pointed out. Attention was drawn to poems devoted to specialised issues, as in the case of Lomonosov’s ode on the benefit of glass. The conclusions to be drawn from this for translation concern first and foremost the endeavour to reproduce in translation the function performed by the ‘chains and grids’ of the aforementioned elements with a particular focus on the informative function. Such a view of text and translation allows the latter to be considered in the context of specialised translation, and by reversing this thought one can treat the translation of specialised texts as a creative work.</p> 2023-04-06T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Między słowem a obrazem 2023-04-06T15:29:19+02:00 Piotr de Bończa Bukowski <p><strong>BETWEEN WORD AND IMAGE: ON JAN BUKOWSKI’S BOOK COVERS AS INTERSEMIOTIC TRANSLATIONS</strong></p> <p>The article is devoted to the art of illustration, understood as the art of translating words into pictures. The subject of the analysis is the work of Jan Bukowski (1873-1943), a leading artist of Young Poland, a pioneer of Polish applied art and an outstanding creator of book graphics. He was revered for his ability to reach the “inner content” of the text resulting from the author’s intention and express it with an equivalent plastic form. The article discusses the theoretical aspects of the word-image relationship and explains the concept of intersemiotic translation. On the basis of this concept, a model is proposed to analyze selected graphic works by Jan Bukowski as intersemiotic translations. The analytical part of the article presents four different types of equivalence that Jan Bukowski used when making his intersemiotic translations, which were designs for the covers of literary works.</p> 2023-04-06T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Refrakcja refrakcji 2023-04-06T15:29:17+02:00 Arkadiusz Luboń <p><strong>REFRACTING THE REFRACTION: ANDRZEJ BUSZA’S TRANSLATION THEORY AND THE CANON OF CONTEMPORARY TRANSLATION STUDIES</strong></p> <p>The article discusses the less-known theory of translation put forward by Andrzej Busza – a Polish-Canadian writer and translator, professor of University of British Columbia and co-founder of “Kontynenty” group in London. Busza, also esteemed as a poet and scholar studying the writings of Joseph Conrad, presented his views on translation theory in his essay published in Polish in 1983. Although the essay discusses the issue of semantic refraction in poetry translation, Busza’s interpretation of the term is different from the one proposed year earlier (1982) by André Lefevere. Thus, the article provides a comparative analysis of both ideas, viewing Busza’s concept as the first contemporary variant of the notion of “refraction” in Polish translation studies.</p> 2023-04-06T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tłumaczki i ich przekłady – różnorodność ról w kontekście kanadyjskim 2023-04-06T15:29:15+02:00 Joanna Warmuzińska-Rogóż <p><strong>DIFFERENT ROLES OF LITERARY FEMALE TRANSLATORS IN THE CANADIAN CONTEXT: THE EXAMPLE OF LORI SAINT-MARTIN</strong></p> <p>The activities undertaken by female translators in the Canadian context definitely go beyond the traditionally observed framework. This is mainly due to the specific role of the translation itself, which is regulated at the institutional level. In addition, translation is understood very broadly, often becoming one of the tools for creativity. This overview shows the different roles of translation in Canada, as well as the different roles of female translators, who are also authors and, in the case of feminist translation and “translation in the feminine”, influence the perception of the translation process itself. All these roles are concentrated in the activities of Lori Saint-Martin, translator, author, and researcher, whose last essay <em>Un bien nécessaire. Éloge de la traduction littéraire</em> has been subjected to a broader analysis.</p> 2023-04-06T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 „Jak zachwyca, kiedy nie zachwyca?” 2023-04-06T15:29:11+02:00 Marek M. Dziekan <p><strong>“HOW IS IT DELIGHTFUL WHEN IT IS NOT?”: ON THE TRANSLATIONS OF THE 55TH SURA OF THE KORAN<em> AR-RAḤMĀN</em> – <em>THE MERCIFUL</em></strong></p> <p>The Koran is not only the holy book of Islam, but also one of the most important literary works of classical Arabic literature. Muslims and people who know Arabic emphasize the extraordinary beauty of this text, written in rhymed and rhythmic prose. 55 sura of the Koran, <em>Ar-Raḥmān</em> (<em>The Merciful</em>) is widely regarded, both in Muslim and Orientalist circles, as one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful, sura of the Koran from the artistic point of view. This is mainly due to the presence of a kind of “refrain” in this sura, which, of course, also has a semantic role in the context of the content of this fragment of the holy book of Muslims. The subject of the article is, first of all, a comparative analysis of the translation of this sura, and first of all of the refrain, in selected translations of the Koran into Polish, German, French and Russian. The analysis focuses not on the way of presenting the content, but on whether the authors of the translations tried to reflect the undoubted beauty of the sound of the Koranic text, which is supposed to delight not only with its content, but also its form, and translators usually have huge problems with this. The conclusions resulting from this analysis have a broader meaning, because analogous problems also arise in the case of ancient Arabic poetry and some other literary genres, primarily <em>maqāma</em>.</p> 2023-04-06T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Transkreacja w Indiach i Brazylii 2023-04-06T15:29:08+02:00 Gabriel Borowski <p><strong>TRANSCREATION IN INDIA AND BRAZIL: ON THE CONCEPTS OF PURUSHOTTAMA LALA AND HAROLDO DE CAMPOS</strong></p> <p>The study aims to compare the concepts of transcreation developed in India and Brazil. The first, more extensive part of the article introduces the profile of Indian translator, poet, essayist, and publisher Purushottama Lal (1929-2010) and attempts to outline his concept of transcreation, which seems to have not been introduced to Polish translation scholars so far. The second part seeks to sketch the most significant differences between Lal’s concept and the ideas of Brazilian translation theorist, translator, and poet Haroldo de Campos (1929-2003). The analysis allows us to conclude that, despite their surprising lexical and chronological convergence, these concepts developed independently and exhibit a number of fundamental differences, which, as indicated by bibliographic reconnaissance, have not yet been discussed in the humanities.</p> 2023-04-06T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Back Matter 2023-04-05T10:24:17+02:00 2023-04-06T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023
