The issue of meaning transfer from one language to another remains the central question in Translation Studies. Translation, understood as an activity which operates with the socio-cultural-ideological loads present in the core of linguistic codes, constitutes a challenge for its scholars and practitioners who search, the former, for explanations, and the latter for solutions. The main question remains how to overcome the cultural and ideological barriers in order to achieve a truthful rendering of the message. It is not the purpose of this paper to solve this secular issue but just to look at it from different angles so as to better discern its various aspects.
