Another interesting translation theoriest

is Antoine Berman, who argues that we should use translations to "radically denaturalize the mother tongue." He writes this in a book on German Romanticism, which quite obviously is the big influence. The problem with this is perhaps that the translated text becomes kind of tool for the target language.
