Abstract:

This book is concerned with translation theory. It proposes an all-round view
of translation in the terms of modern pragmatics, as articulated in three
pragmatic functions (performative, interpersonal and locative) which describe
how translated texts function in the world, involve readers and are rooted in
their spatio-temporal contexts.

It presents a full and up to date view of translation that takes into account
thirty years of research in the field of Descriptive Translation Studies.
Unlike DTS, the theory provides an account of products and processes.

This publication exhibits the need for and usefulness of such a theory, and
will be essential reading for scholars involved in translation and
interpreting studies.
