Applied Translation Studies (ATS) is a comprehensive introduction to translation studies for those who are interested in learning the ‘how’ of text translation. It provides theories, strategies, and principles that are helpful for assessing or enhancing the quality of translation output. ATS is organized around three paradigms: the equivalence paradigm, the functionalist paradigm, and the discourse paradigm. Considered together, they explain the nature and reality of translating (a practical act) and translation (a field of study).
