Mainly geared towards students and learners of translation, the main aim of this book is to enhance translation students’ competence in translating from French into English. After a brief introduction, the book gives an overview of some translation strategies, and some comparisons between English and French as far as some grammatical features are concerned. Most texts selected for translation are contemporary French literary texts. They contain many potential translation problems inherent in literary discourse. Divided into three parts, the work contains 50 translated and commented texts, 50 commented but not translated texts and 50 texts without comments or translation.
