”In Investigating Semantic and Syntactic Equivalence in The Translation Process, the author proposes a linguistic analysis of the translation problems encountered by Arab students in translating literary texts from English into Arabic. The approach is justified by the author in terms of linguistic and cultural differences between the two languages. The results obtained can be useful for teachers specialized in teaching translation at university level but also for translators.”
