Abstract: In this applied study, a highly qualitative translation of the book Body Language by James Borg, has been attempted with the principles of translation theory serving as the main guidelines. From gathering background information about the ST, to discussing and eventually deciding on a holistic translation approach, to considering terminology and naturalness, this actual and factual project was based on solid theoretical and practical grounds. A good understanding of notions such as semantic translation and communicative translation, or foreignization and domestication, has facilitated the smooth rendering of linguistic and cultural intricacies. Illustrative examples on how these translation principles were efficiently implemented were extracted from several elements like allusions and terminology and discussed in depth. Special emphasis was given to revision and editing.
