Abstract:

Exploring Translation Theories presents a comprehensive analysis of the key
traditional and contemporary paradigms of translation theory.

The book builds on Western theories of translation, starting with a survey
of the classical twentieth-century linguistic approaches before moving on
to more recent models such as cultural translation. Each central paradigm
and its associated theories are addressed in turn, including equivalence,
purpose, description, uncertainty, localisation and cultural translation.
Readers are encouraged to explore the various theories and consider their
strengths and implications for translation today and in the future. The
book closes with a survey of the way translation is used as a model in
postmodern cultural studies and sociologies, extending the scope beyond
traditional Western notions.

Each chapter includes a wealth of material for readers, including key
concepts, an introduction outlining the main points, illustrative examples
with translations, a chapter summary, and discussion points and exercises.

Exploring Translation Theories uses numerous examples from a range of
languages, although knowledge of no language other than English is assumed.
With a wealth of tasks and activities, it will be ideal both for classroom
and self-study use. This comprehensive and highly engaging book is designed
for students studying Translation Theory in Translation Studies and Applied
Linguistics programmes.
