The Theory and Practice of Translation




“The Theory and Practice of Translation”, first published in 1982 and a companion work to “Toward a Science of Translating”, 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 2000 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, this work explores issues of textual meanings and the procedures for communicating these meanings into other languages and cultures.
