Names in literary translation : a case study of English versions of the Slovenian tale Martin Krpan
Darja Mazi Leskovar, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: This article presents three English translations of the Slovenian tale Martin Krpan z Vrha (1858) by Fran Levstik and focuses on the translation of personal and geographical names with the aim of examining the application of domestication and foreignization translation strategies. The comparative analysis of the English names aims to find out if the cultural gap between the source and the target cultures has been diminishing over the years. The study also highlights the role of the chronotope that gives the work, one of the most frequently translated Slovenian texts, a distinctive cultural character.
Keywords: English translations of Martin Krpan, comparative analysis of translated name, domestication and foreignization strategies, chronotope, Slovene literature, literary translation

The first translations of Leatherstocking tales in Slovene
Darja Mazi Leskovar, 2007, review article

Secondly, it discusses the interplay of domestication and foreignization with regard to the forms and functions of proper names.

Leatherstocking tales: 20th century Slovenian translations
Darja Mazi Leskovar, 2009, original scientific article

Abstract: This article examines Slovenian translations of James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales published from 1926 onwards. By analysing the domestication and foreignisation procedures, it uncovers how these translations testify to the narrowing of the gap between Slovenian and American cultures. The notes in particular are highlighted since they are revealing also about the importance of each translation for Slovenian cultural context.
