Tradução e Censura no Estado Novo

Quando este projecto se iniciou no CECC, os relatórios da Comissão de Censura ao Livro estavam dispersos por várias caixas sem qualquer critério, tal como se encontravam no Arquivo do SNI (Secretariado NacionaI de Informação, Cultura Popular e Turismo) antes de serem incluídos no Arquivo Nacional da Torre do Tombo. Sabendo-se embora que livros haviam sido autorizados, proibidos ou autorizados com cortes, não havia ainda estudos sistemáticos sobre esses relatórios, nomeadamente sobre o discurso dos censores, sua argumentação, seu processo de decisão, destino das obras examinadas, etc.
