Chapter 19. The history of translation in Brazil through the centuries
In search of a tradition
This report attempts to give an overview of the history of translation and interpretation in Brazil from the 16th century to the present. It seeks to show important historical characters, works and processes in Translation Studies in Portuguese America in order to discover a possible Brazilian translation tradition. The main paradigms of the History of Brazilian translation are also found in the historical events that took place during each century. In brief, the essay is a panoramic and critical view for non-specialists of the history of the Brazilian tradition of interpretation and translation.
