English term or phrase: *part of the sentence*
Bitte um Hilfe, da Englisch nicht zu meinen Arbeitssprachen gehört.

Fitch möchte herausfinden, ob sich die Rezeption einer Übersetzung verändert, wenn der Leser weiß, dass er es mit einer Selbstübersetzung zu tun hat. Dazu unterteilt er die Leserschaft in drei Gruppen:

The third reader, for his part, is the only who is unlikely to lose all awareness of the original version. *But even he is unlikely to indulge in the same comparative reading of the second version in the light of the first that he would submit any other translation to - unless, of course, he were susbequently to choose to undertake an actual comparative study of the two versions.*

German translation:Selbst dieser ...
Explanation:
.. wird die 2. Version vor dem Hintergrund der 1. Version kaum so vergleichend lesen wie irgendeine andere Übersetzung - außer wenn es ohnehin Komparatistik zweier Versionen betriebe.

I strongly suggest to ask English N.S. for verification, as I find the source text a bit off.

for "wenn es ohnehin" read "wenn er ohnehin". Awkward phrasing.
