From One Language Into Another: Aspect Of Ideology In The Translation Of The Holy Bible Into Yoruba

Authors : Babatunde Samuel Moruwawon .

Abstract

The difficulty in translating the Bible into Yoruba supports the question posed by Sachea M.T. (2003:30) on whether a language can translate society, that is, the Judeo-Graeco-Roman society. This paper discusses aspects of ideology in the translation of the Bible into Yoruba and concludes that ideology as a concept in the translation of the Bible is a both a process and a product that finds its way into the Source Text while the translator looks for a strategy to reflect it or avoid its confrontation in the Target Language.
