why and how does domestication, according to Venuti, influence the creation of norms and values among the target text audience?

First of all, it sounds like you don't want to read the article on your own.
Second, I believe that you can find quite a bit of information about Venuti et al in the Article Knowledge Base (just search using "domestication").
And thirdly, isn't domestication a reflection of the norms and values of the target audience? The only way I can think that it affects the norms and values is that, in terms of translators' invisibility, it continues to mask the presence of the translator thereby affecting the way translations are accepted in the target culture (i.e. as if they were *written* in the target language by their author rather than translated into the target language).
But check out Venuti's article on translator's invisibility (I believe that's what it's called too). It will clear everything up.
