Abstract [en]

This paper is based on a translation from English to Swedish of an excerpt of a work of popular culture, which mainly deals with the subject of popular music. The paper investigates what strategies can be used to solve translation problems connected to the intertextual relations allusions and quotations and how the readers and the function of the text become a factor in selecting a strategy to solve these problems. It takes its starting point in Ritva Leppihalme’s strategies for translation of allusions, while having a functionalist approach to translation. The analysis shows that Leppihalme’s strategies aptly describe how to solve translation problems caused by allusions and quotations, although not all strategies are used in the selected corpus. It is possible the small corpus is one reason for this, but also possible is the function of this particular target text and its intended readers means excluding certain strategies.
