    Abstract

    Using a 6000 word case study translation from a French target text, this dissertation explores the issues surrounding the importance of selecting an appropriate translator for the field of cycling translation. It evaluates the utility of translation theories in this area of translation and establishes the degree to which glossaries, footnotes and endnotes can extend the likely target language readership. Textual analysis of the case study translation, in comparison with both source language and target language parallel texts, leads to the conclusions that a text’s skopos is essential, the suitability of the translator is vital and that glossaries seem likely to extend accessibility of a target text.
