This article is about the measurement of lexical correspondence between translations of a single source text. Comparing the degree of accordance between various translations on the one hand and a particular translation on the other, an hypothesis can be made about the influence the single translation experienced from the other translations. This method is demonstrated by means of five Bible translations in Dutch.
