Digital transcoding: an extension of translation?

Abstract : The article broaches the question of transcoding works of programmed digital poetry from two models of digital communication: the cybertext and the procedural model. It recalls the fundamental semiotic concepts introduced in the procedural model to describe the rhetorical relations between the source program and the visual: the snatches and the braids, and shows the presence of a particular figure: the "proxymore" in works by several authors: J.M Dutey, T. Papp, BpNichol. It then postulates a complete semiotic goal to transcoding and develops a concept of "reading machine" as an alternative to transcoding, more powerful than this last, in the optics of the preservation of digital literary works
