From 1970 through to the beginning of the new millennium, the field of translation has exploded with multiple new theories. Contemporary Translation Theories examines five new approaches - the translation workshop, the science of translation, translation studies, polysystem theory, and deconstruction - all of which began in the mid-1960s and continue to be influential.
