The object of this article is to analyze the translation of Macedonian realia into “big” western cultures. The corpus consists of the English translation of the poetry book White Dawns by Kosta Racin and the French translation of the novel Witch by Venko Andonovski. Realia are classified into groups and then different translation strategies are observed. Venuti’s theory on domestication and foreignization is taken into consideration in order to examine which strategy prevails in the corpus. Macedonian literature in official language being young the corpus is also analyzed through the prism of Zohar’s polysytem theory.
