Abstract

This article will examine the concept of translation competence confronting one hand the notion of linguistic competence, and secondly the concept of competence in sociological terms. Je défends l'idée que cette notion est plus proche du concept de Compétence Linguistique qu'on ne le dit habituellement dans les travaux de traductologie. I argue that this concept is closer to the concept of Linguistic Competence than is usually told in the work of translation studies. Cette notion permettrait en effet de rendre compte, dans une certaine mesure, de données relevées dans des études portant sur de jeunes interprètes et serait compatible avec certaines hypothèses élaborées dans le cadre de la neurolinguistique du bilinguisme. This concept would indeed report to a certain extent, data obtained in studies on young performers and would be compatible with certain assumptions made in the context of neurolinguistics bilingualism.
