Translation As A Means Of Cross-cultural Communication: Some Problems In Literary Text Translations

Problematic aspects of intercultural communication are considered in the context of cultural and linguistic barriers encountered in translations from English into Serbian. The analysis of potential problems in translation of literary texts is based on the examples taken from the Serbian translation of a contemporary novel. The discussion clearly illustrates the pitfalls of translation and underpins the importance of a knowledge of the culture with which one is attempting to communicate. The analytic framework is grounded in critical linguistic approach to concrete translators' mistakes and it reports on the challenges of some lexical issues in the translation process
