Lawrence Venuti is one of the most important theorists in Translation Studies and his work has helped shape the development of this vibrant field. Translation Changes Everythingbrings together thirteen of his most significant articles. The articles trace the theoretical developments in his translation research from an instrumental to a hermeneutic model, from the concept of the remainder to the concepts of the inscription and the interpretant, from an ethics of cultural respect to an ethics of cultural innovation. Throughout the collection Venuti highlights what is lacking in the past decade's research in the hope of staging a break with institutionalized knowledge of translation so as to initiate new ways of thinking. The papers attempt to formulate new concepts and to deploy them in analyses that in every instance aim to advance translation theory and practice. This book is essential reading for all those engaged in the study of translation theory and practice within translation studies, translator training and comparative and literary theory.
