Abstract:

"Text Analysis in Translation" has become a classic in Translation Studies.
Based on a functional approach to translation and endebted to pragmatic
text linguistics, it suggests a model for translation-oriented source-text
analysis applicable to all text types and genres independent of the
language and culture pairs involved. 

Part 1 of the study presents the theoretical framework on which the model
is based, and surveys the various concepts of translation theory and text
linguistics. Part 2 describes the role and scope of source-text analysis in
the translation process and explains why the model is relevant to
translation. Part 3 presents a detailed study of the extratextual and
intratextual factors and their interaction in the text, using numerous
examples from all areas of professional translation. Part 4 discusses the
applications of the model to translator training, placing particular
emphasis on the selection of material for translation classes, grading the
difficulty of translation tasks, and translation quality assessment. The
book concludes with the practical analysis of a number of texts and their
translations, taking into account various text types and several languages
(German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch).
