Roman Jakobson on translation

Pym summaries the work of Roman Jakobson, who recognises three kinds of translation:

  1. Intralingual translation or rewording is an interpretation of verbal signs by means of other signs in the same language.
  2. Interlingual translation or translation proper is an interpretation of verbal signs by means of some other language.
  3. Intersemiotic translation or transmutation is an interpretation of verbal signs by means of signs of nonverbal sign systems.
