Abstract

After going back to Even-Zohar's theory of polysystems and discussing the factors that have an impact on the propagation of foreign culture, I argue that institutions have an important role to play in promoting the cultural status of the translated text. Then I refer to Lawrence Venuti's conception that translated texts are part of the output of national literature and suggest that they be included in the literary curricula of the arts and humanities faculties of the target language countries.

Keywords
  • Propagation of foreign culture
  • Promotion of literary translation
  • Status of the translated texts
  • Polysystem theories
