Translation is traditionally seen as a -process that changes meanings from one language to another. This thesis takes as its premise Gentzler's theory of translation as the condition of communication itself, and applies it to contemporary Northern Irish society, to the perceived gaps between government and subject, and between subject and subject. This thesis aims to explore the construction of identities through translation of people who are actively engaged in constructing a place for their community. It will examine their ontological narratives through the filter of government rhetoric Using the Biographical Narrative Interpretive Method of interviewing, this thesis will explore the various decisions and influences that individuals take when they are actively constructing their identity, especially in the case of self-translation in order for them to explain themselves in a foreign culture
