Description The paper presents observations of regularities in the use of implicitation as a translation operation/strategy by several Czech translators of literary fiction from English. The translators whose work was analyzed tended to fall into two types: those using implicitation predominantly as a translation operation (and exhibiting an approach to translation which may be termed "translatorly") and others, who tended to use implicitation as a strategy (and who exhibited a more "writerly" approach to translation).
