Book Description The Chinese University Press, Hong Kong, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Original ed.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This is a study of the author s Chinese translation of Yes Prime Minister (also published by the Chinese University Press in 1993). Adopting a target-oriented approach, the monograph aims to uncover the regularities that mark the relationships between function, process and product. It concludes that the translated text is over-determined by many factors besides the source text: socio-political conditions, literary and translation traditions, and the translator s poetics and ideology. The findings are brought to bear on a number of translation theories, especially the Polysystem Theory and other cultural theories of translation in whose frameworks the study has been carried out.
