Description

This is a practical introductory textbook providing an accessible overview of main contributions to translation theory. The author explores each theory chapter-by-chapter and tests the different approaches by applying them to texts. The texts discussed are taken from a broad range of languages - English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Punjabi, Portugese and Spanish - and English translations are provided. A very wide variety of text types is analyzed, including a tourist brochure, a children's cookery book, a Harry Potter novel, the Bible, literary reviews and translators' prefaces, film translation, a technical text and a European Parliament speech. Each chapter includes the following features: a table introducing key concepts; an introduction outlining the translation theory or theories; illustrative texts with translations; a chapter summary; and discussion points and exercises.
