But what the new approach succeeded in doing was to position the study of translation within the study of culture more broadly, highlighting political and socio-economic factors, while continuing to insist on the importance of close textual analysis; in short, creating an approach to translation that was as much concerned with ideology as with philosophical debates about meaning. The Leuven group were all opposed to what they saw as sterile debates about definitions of ‘faithfulness’ and exact equivalence, subscribing to Holmes’ blunt, common-sense statement about intellectual and creative diversity: Put five translators onto rendering even a syntactically straight-forward, metrically unbound, magically simple poem like Carl Sandberg’s ‘Fog’ into, say Dutch.

In his opening statement, Lefevere announced that he ‘would like to propose the name “translation studies” for the discipline which concerns itself with the problems raised by the production and description of translations’ (Lefevere, 1978: 234). In making this statement, Lefevere was following James Holmes and the two men worked closely together to produce the manifesto, which proposed that the goal of the new discipline (like Holmes before him, Lefevere uses the term ‘discipline’) was ‘to produce a comprehensive theory that can also be used as a guideline for the production of translations’ (Lefevere, 1978: 234).

Beyond the Anglo-American sphere however, others, notably those writers who know what it means to have to operate between more than one language, have taken a different view. They have also questioned the universal applicability of Western models, recognizing, as Azade Seyhan warns, that without due recognition of translation, cultural differences and specificities will be lost. Seyhan counsels against the tendency to read transnational diasporic literatures only through English (Seyhan, 2001). It is not enough to highlight the politics of language suppression as practised within colonial contexts, indeed, it is important to acknowledge the fundamental role played by translation in the diffusion of writing from around the world.
