Abstract:

This volume examines the various linguistic and cultural problems which
point towards the practical impossibility of conveying in one language
exactly what was originally said in another. The author provides an
exhaustive discussion of Spanish translations from English texts, including
non-standard registers. Equivalence across languages, that most elusive of
terms in the whole theory of translation, is discussed in terms of
linguistic equivalence, textual equivalence, cultural equivalence and
pragmatic equivalence. Other aspects studied include how translation has
been perceived over the centuries, the differences and the similarities
between a writer and a translator, plus a detailed examination of
translation as process, all of which bring the problems of literary
translation into perspective.

Contents:

Translation Studies: A historical background - The concept of equivalence -
The specificity of literary translation - The limits of translatability -
Non-standard language - The use of non-standard language for literary
purposes.
