Jeremy Munday, University of Surrey, UK, INTRODUCING
TRANSLATION STUDIES Theories and Applications

Introducing Translation Studies is an introductory textbook providing
an accessible overview of the key contributions to translation
theory. Jeremy Munday 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, and Portugese - 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
* discussion points and exercises.
Including a general introduction, an extensive bibliography,
and suggested web sites to explore, this is a practical,
user-friendly textbook that gives a balanced and
comprehensive insight into translation studies.
