    Originally published in 1991 Redefining Translation looks at the practical results and theory of translation as a key area for all those investigating language and culture. The book addresses the need to consolidate advances in the field of translation and critically evaluate the variety of conflicting approaches. The book proposes a comprehensive approach to the study of translation, looking at the topic from a theoretical point of view, and provides an applicable approach to the everyday practice of translation.
