This paper focuses on idiomatism and translation. While studying translation, it is very important to observe that translation has to deal with social and linguistic constraints, and with the human action of the translator. Within the operation of translation, there is always the human being that feels the need to express and to represent. This involves human dualities: consciousness–unconsciousness, rationality-irrationality. This article will explore the second duality.
