Traduction professionnelle et enseignement de la traduction en france

Abstract : Is it justified to oppose academic and professional translation in France? Academics responsible for the teaching of both domains seem to agree on the necessity of that distinction, but for opposite reasons, as the first presume professional translation to be “unfaithful” and the second consider academic translation ‘amateurish' in the worst sense. But isn't it rather paradoxical to oppose two kinds of translation teaching equally supposed to help students achieve some form of excellence? The place of translation in our academic system seems to be the central question here. The first puzzle is why, although in the French academia, everybody has to be a specialist of some kind, just anybody think they can improvise themselves as translation teachers. The roots of this mistake run deep as they are linked to common misconceptions about the nature of language(s). The second question we consider is whether the way translation is taught in traditional language departments is still appropriate in its present form. Finally, after having compared the teaching of translation as an academic subject and as professional training, we reject the idea that one sort of teaching could be superior to the other, and we expose what, among their differences, could contribute to their reciprocal enrichment.
