Abstract:

This introductory textbook provides an accessible overview of the key
contributions to translation theory.

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 is analysed, 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.
