Editor's Note: This is a new edition of a
previously announced book.
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.
