This chapter offers analyses of some translational difficulties the author of this paper, and first translator of Katherine Mansfield’s stories into Slovak, encountered during her work. These difficulties arose due to the closeness of the Slovak and Czech languages, the specificities of Slovak history and its long and still flourishing connections with Czech culture in general and translation in particular. Aloys Skoumal’s long-standing translations of Mansfield into Czech will be discussed as well. The issues touched upon and put into a cultural, historical and linguistic context are mostly the translation of humour, idiolects, names, modes of formal and informal address, as well as of some titles of Mansfield’s short stories.
