Title: Introducing Translation Studies, Theories and Applications
Description:

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.
