Abstract

In this book the author adopts a prescriptive approach to the practice of cultural context adaptation, i.e. the domestication of foreign names, coinage and foodstuffs, for a child audience, arguing that the literary integrity of the source text should be respected as much as possible. [Based on M. Baker]
