Abstract: 
This paper proposes a study of the process of rewriting in specialised translation
through an analysis of the Italian version of an article on EMU from “The
Economist” published by the Italian weekly “L'Espresso”. Rewriting includes
reformulation of the message, adaptation to the conventions of the TL culture
and manipulation to reflect TL ideology and power structures. An inquiry into
the strategies carried out in translating the article for “L'Espresso” shows that
rewriting a text on econornics in Italian implies selection of a more formal
register, hedging of direct statements, omissions and additions, but above all
modification of the epistemic degree of forecasts. In conclusion, rewriting in this
specialised field presupposes an in-depth knowledge of economic discourse in
both languages.
