    '[C]ulture as text' initially proved to be a pivotal bridging metaphor between cultural anthropology and literary studies. Following an admittedly ambivalent career path, the concept of 'culture as text' has nevertheless continued to rise and has become an over-determined general principle, an emphatic key metaphor, even an overall "programmatic motto for the study of culture" […]. At first, this concept was still closely connected to ethnographic research and to the semiotic framework of interpretive cultural anthropology. However, since the end of the 1990s it has been utilised to encompass a much broader interdisciplinary horizon for the study of culture. 'Culture as text' advanced from being a conceptual metaphor for the condensation of cultural meanings to a rather free-floating formula frequently referred to in analyses within disciplines involved in the study of culture. Surprisingly, 'culture as text' has remained a consistent key phrase throughout the discourses concerned with the study of culture—even after the culture debate had long since turned away from the holistic understanding of culture implied by the formula.

    Investigations of current and historical human rights discourses gain new perspectives when viewed as a problem of translation: by examining non-European transformations/displacements/revisions of the universal principles of the UN Declaration (1948), critical implementations of these principles in local practices and – almost more importantly – re-translations of these local transformations into new declarations of human rights principles. The article discusses the complex conditions under which the universal claim of a western human rights discourse could be challenged by considering translational activities which attempt to identify new, but common reference points for a transcultural human rights discourse.

    Gerade im scharfen Wind der ökonomischen wie auch kulturellen Globalisierungsverhältnisse sind [...] die Kulturwissenschaften nicht mehr allein als nationale Unternehmungen in ihren jeweiligen Wissenschaftstraditionen gefordert. Im Zeichen eines globalen Projekts transnationaler Kulturforschung sind sie vielmehr darauf angewiesen, die Übersetzungsperspektive auch auf sich selbst anzuwenden. Eine der zentralen Fragen wird sein: Gibt es Anzeichen für eine globale Sprache, für ein globales Vokabular als Bedingung der Möglichkeit eines solchen Projekts transnationaler study of culture, in das die verschiedenen regionalen Blickwinkel der Welt eingehen? Oder wird dieses Vorhaben erst dann seiner transnationalen Absicht gerecht, wenn gerade auch lokale Wissensregister und die unterschiedlichen Verortungen in kulturspezifischen Wissenschaftstraditionen dazu aufgerufen sind, an der übersetzerischen Herausbildung eines solchen Vokabulars mitzuwirken?

    It is no longer possible to ignore how crucial processes of cultural translation and their analysis have become, whether for cultural contact or interreligious relations and conflicts, for integration strategies in multicultural societies or for the exploration of productive interfaces between the humanities and the natural sciences. The globalisation of world society, in particular, demands increased attention to mediation processes and problems of transfer, in terms of both the circulation of global representations and 'travelling concepts' and of the interactions that make up cultural encounters. Here, translation becomes, on the one hand, a condition for global relations of exchange ('global translatability') and, on the other, a medium especially liable to reveal cultural differences, power imbalances and the scope for action. An explicit focus on translation processes— something increasingly prevalent across the humanities—may thus enable us to scrutinise more closely current and historical situations of cultural encounter as complex processes of cultural translation. Translation is opened up to a transnational cultural practice that in no way remains restricted to binary relationships between national languages, national literatures or national cultures.

    It is no longer possible to ignore how crucial the processes of cultural translation and their analysis have become, whether for cultural contact or interreligious relations and conflicts, for integration strategies in multicultural societies, or for the exploration of productive interfaces between humanities and the natural sciences.

Here, translation becomes, on the one hand, a condition for global relations of exchange ("global translatability"), and on the other, a medium especially liable to reveal cultural differences, power imbalances and scope for action.
