Description This paper presents an outline of the author’s doctoral thesis concerning an analysis of Czech and German translations of Dutch literature in the first half of the twentieth century. The essential issue is whether these texts should be called “translations” or “adaptations”. In the first part of this paper the latter terms are defined. Furthermore, two major Czech translators of Dutch literature from this period, Rudolf Jordan Vonka and Lída Faltová, are introduced, as well as the corpus. Finally, a case study of a Czech and German translation of Max Havelaar by Multatuli (1860) is presented.
