More Description

Exploring Translation Theories presents a comprehensive analysis of the core contemporary paradigms of Western translation theory.

The book covers theories of equivalence, purpose, description, uncertainty, localization, and cultural translation. This second edition adds coverage on new translation technologies, volunteer translators, non-lineal logic, mediation, Asian languages, and research on translators cognitive processes. Readers are encouraged to explore the various theories and consider their strengths, weaknesses, and implications for translation practice. The book concludes with a survey of the way translation is used as a model in postmodern cultural studies and sociologies, extending its scope beyond traditional Western notions.

Features in each chapter include:

  • An introduction outlining the main points, key concepts and illustrative examples.
  • A chapter summary.
  • Discussion points and suggested classroom activities.
  • Examples drawn from a range of languages, although knowledge of no language other than English is assumed.

This engaging book is ideal both for self-study and as a textbook for theory courses within Translation Studies, Comparative Literature and Applied Linguistics.
