Abstract [en]

Doing a good translation is not as easy as it seems. There are many questions that need to be answered before, during and after a translation and many problems that need to be solved. One of the problems that may arise is whether or not to make an adaption, and if the answer is yes, then what kind of adaption is the best one in that particular case. This thesis aims to look at how different types of adaptions can be used when translating culture-related issues by analyzing the English to Swedish translation of a chapter in the autobiography Anything Goes by John Barrowman. After presenting a theoretical base using Vinay and Darbelnet‘s Comparative stylistics of French and English: a methodology for translation from 1995 and Ingo‘s Konsten att översätta from 2007, the analysis will show how that theory can be applied in practice.
