Com traduiríeu aquí "devitalized"?

So why translate at all? Intercultural communication? But literary translation is more than mere communication (perhaps a rather devitalized notion).

Havia pensat en un terme massa desvirtuat o trillat, m'han proposat debilitat, però no diem que un terme o un concepte estigui "debilitat"...

Gràcies!

obsoleta
Explanation:
una noció més aviat obsoleta, crec que es refereix a aixó, és a dir, que ja no té gaire vida, està mig morta com si diguéssim... "noció obsoleta" és adequat.
