Working with the concept of censorship in Translation Studies is working with a (political) term that does not bring order to our field of study. Translation inseparable from various constraints offers the theoretical possibility of being equated with censorship. How can translation, as a process and a product that essentially functions as a complex network of exclusions and inclusions, be studied distinctively in relation to censorship – i. e. in relation to a similar complex network? What is the added value of ascribing different names to these two complex networks of exclusion and inclusion? Beyond external regulations and text-bound clues, agony and irritation are to be sought. These combined with a state of forlornness make the violence of censorship differentiable as such.
