    Abstract

    Translators are faced with many issues when translating a text from the source language into the target language. This study aims to provide a target text suitable for its audience which is as close to the source text as possible, by overcoming these common problems. Firstly, I have provided a bit of background information on the source text and why I chose to translate this topic and following this, I looked at specific areas that frequently appeared and caused problems within my process of translation. I have produced a successful translation by following translation strategies and methods, and explained my choices, backed up with ideologies from the likes of Munday and Samuelsson-Brown, throughout the commentary.
