In The Oxford Dictionary of Philosophy, Simon Blackburn writes this about Donald Davidson:
Davidson is also known for rejection of the idea of a conceptual scheme, thought of as something peculiar to one language or one way of looking at the world, arguing that where the possibility of translation stops so does the coherence of the idea that there is something to translate.
So if it is impossible to translate the finer points in Mallarmé, no finer points exist.
