Resumen:   In Sodome et Gomorrhe Marcel Proust's narrator muses about his grandmother's attitude towards translation and, more especially, new translation superseding the translations she has been familiar with all her life. To put it briefly, she does not like them at all. Proust's grandmother clearly distinguishes between what are, to her, "good" and "bad" translations. She likes the translations she has grown up with, and translations of Homer's Odyssey and The Thousand and One Nights that change the name of the protagonists are impostors. Proust's grandmother, therefore, does not really like or dislike a translation; rather, she trusts or distrusts a translator. The translator whose work she is familiar with is, to her "faithful". Why was it necessary to publish new translations, or even supersede them altogether? Were the experts wrong? "Faithfulness" does not enter into translation in the guise of "equivalence" between words or texts but, if at all, in the guise of an attempt to make the target text function in the target culture the way the source text functioned in the source culture. A culture, then assigns different functions to translation of different text. The way translations are supposed to function depends both on audience they are intended for and on the status of the source text they are supposed to represent in their own culture.
