Translation project

A translation project is a project that deals with the activity of translating.

From a technical point of view, a translation project is closely related to the project management of the translation process. But, from an intercultural point of view, a translation project is much more complex; this becomes evident, for instance, when considering Bible translation or other literary translation projects.

Translation scholars such as Antoine Berman defend the views that every translator shall develop his/her own translation project, adhere to it and, later, develop translation criticism. Every translator can only be faithful to his/her own translation project.[1]
