Review:

'The third edition is written in exceptionally clear and user-friendly style with not only a new chapter dedicated to Research and Commentary Project but also a lucid account of classic topics such as faithfulness and equivalence. To reflect the nature of the link between translation theories and practice, Jeremy Munday has added case studies in each chapter to offer practical examples of how theories can be applied in the real world. The discussion and research points at the end of each topic will be welcomed by students, teachers and researchers alike... Readers who may have no previous knowledge of translation studies may also find the book interesting and illuminating.' – Susan Xu Yun, SIM University, Singapore
