Theories about the Product

  • Jenny Williams
Part of the Palgrave Textbooks in Translating and Interpreting book series (PTTI)


This chapter will explore a number of aspects of the translation product that have attracted theoretical attention. The discussion starts with the range of possible relations between a translation and its ST, whether that ST is real or presumed, stable or indeterminate. We then follow the move from prescriptive to descriptive theorizing before considering theories about the function of translations. Finally, we turn our attention to postcolonial theories of the product.
