This introductory textbook provides 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, Portuguese and English translations are provided. A wide variety of text types are 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. Each chapter includes the following features:

  • a table introducing key concepts
  • an introduction outlining the translation theory or theories
  • illustrative texts with translations
  • a chapter summary
  • discussion points and exercises.

Including a general introduction, an extensive bibliography, and websites for further information, this is a practical, user-friendly textbook that gives a balanced and comprehensive insight into translation studies
