Summary/Abstract: The article shows different views on the autonomy of the translation in relation to the original text. At first, translation is regarded as a separate entity, a distinct text, functioning in a different cultural sphere (both geographically and linguistically) and often at a different age. Therefore it has a different recipient. Its autonomy is manifested in its multiplicity and recurrence, in the possibility of occurrence of new translations. The stages of creating the original and translation are also different. The autonomy of the translation depends on the attitude of the translator who has at his disposal different methods of work on the original text and different ways of interpreting it although the results of his efforts exist only in relation to the original text. Keywords: translation, original text, autonomy, recipient, cultural sphere.
