The main focus of the present book is the role of text types in translation. By means of English and German travel guides the author examines how to provide a contrastive description of different text types. This description takes into account the translated travel guides. On the basis of functional-systemic linguistics concrete grammatical characteristics are analysed as indicators for abstract register variables. In order to interpret the results reference corpora were compared for both languages, the result of which is a text type profile of English and German travel guides.
