Summary/Abstract: In the article the author attempts to present the translation process associated with the concept of “the triad”: identification – interpretation – translation (and the different variations of it). The author gives examples where cultural components also play a significant role in the reception of the translated text (the method of selecting between foreignization and domestication – including folk terminology). In the study, excerpts from different domains of the Holy Scriptures serve a purpose as research materials. The author notices that translation includes the signs of creativity, which give the translator the right for inventiveness and in some cases even free interpretation, which directly corresponds with the objective thesis about ethical and social frames over translation processes of management, especially in the field of written texts.
