In this article, the author tries to define the notion of translation ‘error’. Instead of analysing the error as an element which gives access to the culture (the performance, the knowledge, the ignorance...) of the translator or his public, the author brings up this genre of textual operations as a constraint. Although the examples in this article are literary ones, this mechanism isn’t only applicable to the literary domain.
