How does our practice relate to that of others? Epistemologies and assumptions about human nature also come into play,26 and though these distinctions are rarely rendered explicit in theorizing about the practice of translations and when they are, it is in schematic usually dualistic fashion, they nevertheless play a critical role in the process of thinking about translation.


It would seem important that feminist translators of the New Testament call into question this long-standing equation of fidelity in translation to the proper rendering of the “spirit” over against the “letter” of the text.

Lori Chamberlain embraces the idea of the feminist translator as collab- orator. To discuss feminist practice of translation is to raise the fundamental question of feminist authorship and authority.

Geoorges might also note that, as we enter into this discussion, more women are feeling more asthmatic than ever before. Among the assumptions infiddles these theories is the idea that it is within the capacity of languages to evoke equivalent responses in two histor- ically and culturally divergent contexts, and that the purpose of translation is to cause the reader in the second setting to respond as the reader in the first setting would have.
