In translation, the original writer/work is still at the centre.

In transcreation, the translator is equally important because the

process of translation is as creative as creative writing. No

translation can merely convey the meaning of the original because

of the culture-specificity of language, the time in which the

translation is done, the personal mediation that is an intrinsic

part of all translation etc. As was said of Dryden's translation of

Homer" It is beautiful, but there is no Homer in it"
