This collection of nine papers, drawn from the Choice and Difference in Translation international conference hosted by the U. of Athens in December 2003, addresses the potential of translation as a shaping force in culture and its ability to provide a record of changing identities in societies. Topics include the decision whether to globalize language and culture on the Internet, metaphor in culture, translation strategies and the polysystem, the complexities of Racine and the translations of Aristotle's Poetics, localizing and globalizing trends in Language through the Looking Glass, a case study of translating Hemingway into Arabic, surrealism and translation in opposition, and translation as a means of deepening one's identity.
