Resumen:   In this introductory chapter, I briefly address what I deem to be some of the most important problems arising from translation in the context of comparative legal studies. In the first part, I foreground the impossibility of translation. Contrary to unexamined assumptions, law simply cannot be faithfully translated from one language to the other. Turning to the second aspect of my argument, I claim that the comparatist must, however, make the impossible possible. Despite the irreducible differences across languages and cultures, the comparative lawyer cannot refrain from translation. Moreover, she must choose, among the various available strategies, an approach to translation that values the otherness of the foreign law. In my third section, I introduce the various contributions to this volume, which all offer comparatists' invaluable insights into the theory and practice of translation in comparative legal studies.
