Style and Voice: Lost in Translation?

Abstract : Although translation studies play an important role within the academic cursus of undergraduate degrees in French universities, and are a core element of the competitive civil service examinations (the CAPES and the Agrégation) which are required to teach in the French education system, little attention is paid to translating style per se. Translation modules which are usually compulsory at undergraduate level are, perhaps understandably, concerned with teaching language skills: checking that the text has been understood, that grammatical structures are fully mastered and that students have an extensive knowledge of lexical items.
