Resumen:   For André Lefevere, translation is socio-historically determined, which means, among other things, that translation takes place within a hierarchy of languages and cultures (Greek, for instance, was considered as superior to Latin by the Romans themselves) and within the framework of the "pedagogical institution." The influence of a text is inscribed in a system of "packaging, cutting, and pasting of literature (...) for pedagogical purposes," and translation as part of the packaging business must be studied as such. Do translation studies need to be independent from other disciplines and in particular from comparative literature? "The very claim to independence risks robbing (the field) of much of its potential relevance, a relevance that goes beyond the boundaries of literary studies." According to A. Lefevere, rewriting activities (translations, literary histories, etc.) are the best mirrors in which to study cultures in interaction and the image that a given culture wishes to offer itself for pedagogical purposes. No longer can literature be considered to be "secular scripture;" it is now possible to study it as a non-sacred, symbolic object — fortunately for translation studies. [Source: Editor]
