Palimpsestes is a journal devoted to the theoretical and practical problems of translating French into English, and English into French.It is intended for all who are in any way interested in the exciting operations of communicating and recreating that lie behind translation.

Each issue of Palimpsestes covers a specific translating problem.

The articles endeavour to bring out what can be theorised - or at least generalised or given a general value - from specific texts and their translations.


Palimpsestes aims to integrate theory into the practice of translating, while also reflecting on the concrete problems facing a translator. bilingual presentation of all the texts discussed is included with each issue of Palimpsestes.
