Abstract:

Translation may be regarded as a response to a problem of communication usually between two language-bound cultural entities. The act itself is a multi-dimensional and multi-layered process involving in one consensual domain problem solving and decision making. This book explores translation as a decision-making process under constraints. It examines these constraints, and develops a three-tier decision-based translation model that can be used in self-evaluation of translations and in translation quality assessment. The model is anchored in optimality theory and regards translation as a temporary system of conflicting forces embodied by constraints yielding an optimal translation within these constraints. -- Product Description.
