Translating ‘Hybrid Literature’ in a Globalized World

Sofía Lacasta Millera


Translation has never been only a matter of words. For this reason, trying to find the perfect one will lead to frustration. Nowadays we are living in a globalized world where communication, depending on its use, can be both a very useful tool and a weapon of destruction. It is the time when we assume the conquest of freedom of speech while we do not listen to the ‘Other’. There are more and more rising voices trying to express what they kept when they were forced to be silent, even reinventing languages and creating new ones. It is high time to discover cultures through the languages, to express feelings shared by two countries and nationalities, to claim what is fair. It is the communication revolution but, can it really take place in a globalized world where the most developed countries continue trying to impose their speech? How can the translator express in a new language what he has never felt?

Keywords: globalization, translation, hybrid literature, Rotten English, etc.
