Description The empirical study presented in this paper is an attempt to link two important concepts that have emerged - not exclusively, but predominantly - within the descriptive approach to studying translation and thanks to the use of translation corpora: explicitation and translator style. Aims, methods and results of a pilot study for a dissertation exploring how explicitation contributes to translator's style in fiction are presented, wihting the context of the design of the whole dissertation project.
