Abstract in another language

This article presents interesting early discoveries in the study of English-Hausa translations. They are the preliminary findings deducted from reading both primary and secondary texts, visiting libraries and research centers, and from holding interviews and discussions with translators, experts, and scholars. The paper identifies the aims of the English Hausa translations, examines the texts and background of the translators, and also analyses the reception of the documents by the target audience. These incidental findings include some unidentified English Hausa paratextual translation traditions, the wide range of differences between English source texts and Hausa translations, the unavailability of some important English Hausa translations that are supposed to be in high demand, how assumed Hausa source texts turn out as translations, and the profiles of the English-Hausa translation agencies.

Abstract in another language

Cet article présente les premières découvertes intéressantes dans l'étude des traductions anglais-haoussa . Il s'agit de conclusions préliminaires tirées de la lecture de textes primaires et secondaires, de visites de bibliothèques et de centres de recherche, ainsi que d'entretiens et de discussions avec des traducteurs, des experts et des universitaires. L’article identifie les objectifs des traductions anglais-haoussa, examine les textes et les antécédents des traducteurs, et analyse également la récep-
tion des documents par le public cible. Parmi les conclusions, citons certaines traditions de traduction paratextuelle anglais-haoussa non identifiées, le large éventail de différences entre les textes sources anglais et les traductions en haoussa, l'indisponibilité de certaines traductions anglais-haoussa importantes censées être très demandées, la manière dont les textes sources haoussa sup-
posés sont transformés en traductions et les profils des agences de traduction anglais-haoussa.
