Abstract

This paper carries out a comparative study of traditional translation approach and functionalist translation approach, and then proposes a theoretical framework in which the functionalist translation approach is applied to legal translation. Functionalist theory is adapted for analysis of legal translation phenomena, which may offer an alternative to traditional translation.
