    What is the difference between a translation method and a technique?
    It’s very simple question. In my view a method is applied to the entire text to be translated, while the technique may vary within the same text according to each case and depending on the specific verbal elements to be translated.

    hi QudratUllah,

    the methods of translation are:

    • Word-for-word translation
    • Literal translation
    • Faithful translation
    • Semantic translation
    • Adaptation
    • Free translation
    • Idiomatic translation
    • Communicative translation
    there is a poll of information about all these methods
    and about translation technique, there is a list.
    you can have details on the following links
