Summary/Abstract: A record Umberto Eco’s speech delivered in April 2001 at the Université Paris 7 – Denis Diderot, gathering and re-representing Eco’s reflections upon the theory of translation. The source has been the author’s double experience, as a translator and as an author whose works have been translated into other languages. Eco quotes various examples of translations (including computer-based), using them in his discussion of the source-oriented and target-oriented translation theories and their consequences (e.g. eignising).
