This volume has been designed as an introduction to the history, theory, and practice of Translation Studies for undergraduate students of B.A. (Hons.) English, B.A., and B.Com. at the University of Delhi for Ability Enhancement Elective Course under CBCS programme. It combines the functions of both, a textbook and a workbook, in one. It begins with a brief history of translation in the West and in India and goes on to discuss types of translation and terms and concepts used in Translation Studies. It also includes a chapter on equivalence, the key issue in translation. Two chapters are devoted to the use of translation in mass communication and commerce and to machine translation and the processes of oral interpretation respectively. The last chapter is on the complexities of gender and translation. Each chapter is accompanied by exercises and suggestions for activities and project work.
