Childrens literature delights in made-up words, nonsensical terms, and creative nicknames, but how do you translate these expressions into another language?This book provides a new approach to translation studies to address the challenges of translating childrens literature. It focuses on expressive language (nonsense, names, idioms, allusions, puns, and dialects) and provides guidance for translators about how to translate such linguistic features without making assumptions about the readers capabilities and without drastically changing the work.

The text features effective strategies for both experienced translators and those who are new to the field, including exercises and discussion questions that are particularly beneficial for students training to be translators. This learner-friendly book also offers original contributions to translation theory in light of the translation issues particular to childrens literature.
