Description:

The Theory and Practice of Translation, first published in 1982 and a
companion work to Toward a Science of Translating (Brill, 1964), analyses
and describes the set of processes involved in translating. Bible
translating, the focus of this work, offers a unique subject for such a
study, as it has an exceptionally long history, involves more than 2,000
languages, a vast range of cultures and a broader range of literary
structures than any other type of translating. Not only of interest to
Biblical scholars, therefore, this work explores issues of textual meanings
and the procedures for communicating these meanings into other languages
and cultures.
