Abstract:

Contexts in Translating is designed to help translators understand the
varieties of contexts and their importance for understanding a text
and reproducing the meaning in another language. The contexts include
the historical setting of writing a text, the cultural components that
make a text unique, the types of audiences for which the translation
is intended, and the most efficient and effective ways of producing a
satisfactory representation of the source-language text. The
structural levels of language are described, and the principal
features of text organization are also explained. In addition, the
main features of various books on translation are outlined, and a
chapter on basic theories of translation is followed by a selective
bibliography.
