AbstractPractitioners of translation who have had the experience of translating between any two major European languages as well as between Chinese and a European language will be aware that the former type of translation is much less complex than the latter. With reference to English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Latin, Greek, and Chinese, this article examines translation in various directions, and shows how centrifugality and centripetality account for increased or reduced complexity of the translation process. © 2007 Akadémiai Kiadó.
