Abstract

Using a wealth of interesting and various examples, Reiss offers a systematic and illuminating text typology, a pragmatic approach to text analysis, a functional perspective on translation and a hermeneutic view of the translator, thus accounting for some of the most important aspects of the translation process: the text (both source and target versions), the conditions which determine the translator’s decisions, and the translator as an individual whose personal interpretation has to be respected by any critic.
