Translation Studies From Multiple Perspectives

Jixing LONG

Abstract


This paper studies contemporary translation theories from multiple perspectives. It mainly focuses on the books such as In Other Words: A Coursebook on Translation, The Theory and Practice of Translation, Translation and Empire, Discourse and the translator, Translation and relevance and the Pragmatics of Translation. The first two books discuss translation from the perspective of linguistics and demonstrate many useful translation strategies. The third one, from the post-colonial perspective, views translation as a way of power distribution and a helper of empire’s ruling, whereas the last three ones mainly concentrate on the relationship between pragmatics and translation and talk about the application of pragmatics to translation in detail.
