Exploring Translation Theories presents a comprehensive analysis of the key traditional and contemporary paradigms of translation theory.
The book builds on Western theories of translation, starting with a survey of the classical twentieth-century linguistic approaches before moving on to more recent models such as cultural translation. Each central paradigm and its associated theories are addressed in turn, including equivalence, purpose, description, uncertainty, localisation and cultural translation. Readers are encouraged to explore the various theories and consider their strengths and implications for translation today and in the future. The book closes with a survey of the way translation is used as a model in postmodern cultural studies and sociologies, extending the scope beyond traditional Western notions.
Each chapter includes a wealth of material for readers, including key concepts, an introduction outlining the main points, illustrative examples with translations, a chapter summary, and discussion points and exercises.
Exploring Translation Theories uses numerous examples from a range of languages, although knowledge of no language other than English is assumed. With a wealth of tasks and activities, it will be ideal both for classroom and self-study use. This comprehensive and highly engaging book is designed for students studying Translation Theory in Translation Studies and Applied Linguistics programmes.

Anthony Pym is Professor and Director of postgraduate programmes in Translation and Intercultural Studies at Rovira i Virgili University in, Tarragona, Spain. He is also a member of the International Advisory Board for the Translation Studies journal.Review:
"Pym has a rare gift for exposition. He equips his readers to theorise for themselves by starting from problems rather than pronouncements...For anyone who has ever sought to convince others that theory can enrich and enhance translation practice, this book is essential reading." - Adrienne Mason, University of Bristol, UK
"Exploring Translation Theories is a valuable addition to the recent publishing boom in Translation Studies: it offers a clear exposition of the principal theories for newcomers to the field while placing them in enough new light to provide food for thought for more established Translation Studies scholars, and suggests a number of tantalising new directions for research." - Susan Pickford, Université Paris-Sorbonne
"Exploring translation theories, Second edition by Anthony Pym is a thought provoking book on prevailing paradigms of Western translation theories. Each chapter is clearly laid out with an opening summary, a bulleted list of the chapter’s key points, a section in which key terms are defined if necessary, and a segment that offers supporting and opposing arguments about the chapter’s theories. Additionally, each chapter contains a closing summary and a list of suggested activities that relate to the chapter’s paradigm, making it an ideal addition to an advanced course on translation...the “Suggested projects and activities” sections at the end of each chapter are a welcome addition to any translation classroom. The activities are fun and informative, as they will challenge students to think through the different paradigms on a practical level." - Diana Gorman Jamrozik, Columbia College Chicago.
