L’identification des tendances déformantes dans une analyse contrastive a l’avantage de fournir un cadre sous la forme d’une liste d’éléments à rechercher dans le texte. Il devient donc possible de scruter systématiquement la traduction et de relever les déformations. Un exemple parmi d’autres, au chapitre douze, lorsqu’il décrit les cérémonies de préparation à la guerre, Champlain écrit : « […] les femmes sſe deſpouillerent toutes nues, parees de leurs plus beaux Matachias […]1 » (Champlain, [1603] : 331)2.

Nous empruntons le terme « adéquat » à Gideon Toury, qui le définit de la manière suivante : « An adequate translation is a translation which realizes in the target language the textual relationship of a source text with no breach of its own [basic] linguistic system ». Autrement dit, l’adhérence aux normes du texte source détermine l’adéquation de la traduction au texte source (Toury, 1995 : 56-57).
