Translation Assessment: Notes on the Interlingual Transfer of an Advertising Text.
Horton, David
IRAL, v36 n2 p95-119 May 1998
Attempts to measure translation quality raise important questions about the nature of textual transfer, the relationship between source- and target-language texts, and translation functions. Examination of a typical advertising text, translated from English to German, shows the degree of freedom with which texts are manipulated in professional practice and demonstrates difficulties that this presents for quality assessment.
