A book Theory of Translation is a work for author’s master’s degree she received in 1997 at the Philology Department at The Faculty of Philosophy in Zagreb. This book is a thorough and multi- layered study of fundamental problems of the theory of translation. Starting with a discourse of the relation between general and specialised directions in the theory of translation resulting in deductive (general, universal) and inductive (specialised, empirical), the author initiates a discussion on models and forms of translation, along with patterns of translation. This study gives a thorough discussion on oral and written translating, as well as literary and scientific translating, which comprises a whole range of translating and interpreting practices.
This book brings critic’s analysis of real translation examples, from English to Croatian and from Croatian to Russian languages. It is intended for both translation theoreticians and translators. The book was published with the support of Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports.
“Models of Translation” comprises the analysis of three fundamental translation models – textual, genre-stylistic and communicational, with the latter lying at the crossroads of general and special translation theories. The book is useful for translators both in theoretical and practical terms, thus drawing the attention of translation theoreticians, as well as the translators themselves. The book was published with the support of Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports.
