This paper discusses factors contributing to differing translations of the same source text, arguing that translation occurs on a continuum rather than having absolute criteria and procedures. Issues examined include the formal properties of the text, the text's invariant core of meaning, stability in the semantic elements of the text, the text as both product and process, sources of differing interpretations, socialization of the translator, and the varying translations' degrees of dependence on the source text.
