Resumen:   Inspired by the theoretical findings of the Tel Aviv group and by Bakhtin's concept of the dialogic, Oittinen argues strongly for a special approach to translating for children because "the dialogic situation of translation for children differs from that for adults" (5). Children read texts differently than do adults, and they also like different texts than do adults. Finnish research from 1984 on children's and adults' favorite children's books, mentioned by Oittinen, revealed that the tastes of adults and children tend to be quite different. With the exception of Astrid Lindgren, who appeared on both lists, choices diverged considerably. Oittinen concludes that we should undo power relationships and hierarchies of status by listening to children and by truly entering into a dialogue with them. Dialogics applied to translation thus becomes "reaching out to children without the fear of relinquishing one's own authority" (183). [Source: Eva-Maria Metcalf]
