There are three sociocultural levels, which determine the style and characteristics of a translation: (1) for recipients with an average level of culture and education, (2) for recipients with low literacy level and underdeveloped reading skills, (3) for recipients with literary formation and prodigious reading skills.
We can identify a typology of translations: (1) one that swings between the strict equivalence and the necessary adaptations to the grammatical rules of the target language. (2) one that doesn’t seek a strict equivalence but a dynamic one. (3) one that provides a foothold for a “scientific” comment.
