n Journal of Northwest Semitic Languages - - a review from the perspective of Bible translation

Volume 38, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0259-0131


This review article is written with reference to the recent book by Anthony Pym entitled "Exploring Translation Theories" (2010). In my descriptive evaluation, I progressively work through the text, pointing out areas of special interest and importance along the way, including occasional critical observations. I have carried out this analysis from the particular perspective of the theory and practice of Scripture translation, which not surprisingly does not receive a great deal of attention in Pym's overview of the field of contemporary translation studies. This is a significant work and one that undoubtedly will be referenced a great deal in the months to come. Hence, a more detailed reflection and application from the specific viewpoint of "Bible translation studies" is necessary.
