Summary

The analysis and translation of extreme texts, or highly constrained texts, such as acronyms, anagrams, lipograms, pangrams, plays on words, and puns but also poems, lyrics, and even novels, are not just useful teaching practices that can allow students to improve their linguistic competence, both in their native and foreign languages. These activities have a fundamental pedagogical and political value. In training translators, ‘talk-and-chalk’ lectures should be replaced by collaborative workshops, attended not only by teachers and students but also by experts and actors in the editorial productive chain (professional translators, editors, publishers, and clients).
