THE ANALYSIS OF THE TURKISH TRANSLATION OF THE FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE IN THE NOVEL “THE THIEF AND THE DOGS” WRITTEN BY NEJIB MAHFUZ WITHIN THE AMBIT OF THE TRANSLATION THEORIES COINED BY NIDA, SCHLEİERMACHER AND LEFEVERE

In this study, the translation of the figurative language in the novel “The Thief and the Dogs” written by the Egyptian Nobel winner Nejib Mahfuz has been analyzed within the ambit of translation theories coined by western translation theorists. The fundamental argument of this research is the fact that in order for a translation criticism to be thoroughly academic it needs to have a solid theoretical framework. This essay has also argued the fact that a translation analysis lacking a theoretical framework will only be error hunting. The model of research of this study is a literature review. In this study qualitative research has been carried out rather than quantitative research. Moreover, this study has also argued the fact that in order for a translation analysis to be scientific it needs to be supported by theoretical explanations. In this study, the theories that constitute the theoretical framework of the analysis has been explained and a scientific translation analysis have been made respectively. The fundamental finding which is obtained in the conclusion of this research is the fact that the translator has adopted Schleiermacher’s theory of imitation in other words domestication in his translation
