Theory of translations

I have begun reading Introducing Translation Studies, by Jeremy Munday, as I am trying my hand at commercial translation. _Dolmetscher_ is the slightly derogatory term for commercial translators. It was coined by 19th century theologian Schleiermacher, who still is a defining influence on translation theories. (Most things that folks in T Studies are doing nowadays are in response to some conecpt or thought of his (!), according to Munday.) The other, artistic and literary kind of translator he calls _Ãœbersetzer_.
