Translation is one of the main vehicles for the representation of foreign cultures in domestic environments. However, in the case of peripheral "minorised" contexts, the manipulative power of translation can become representative of a nationalist stance, the reflection of conflicts and tensions which are present in the target culture. This article tries to explore the relationship between translation activities and the process of cultural and linguistic normalisation in Galicia in the 1920s.
