ABSTRACT

This study deals with translation for book publication, which earns much interest from the public, whereas has been studied rarely. To identify the process of this kind of translation, depth interview with four editors of publishing companies was done. Overall result is as follows: 1) editors manage the whole translation process from selecting the translator to editing translator's translation. 2) asymmetrical power relationship between translators and editors was not obvious as scholars suggest. 3) editors are not satisfied with the quality of translators’ translation. 4) the result translation has to be considered as cooperated work of translators and editors. 5) editors don’t agree on readers’ expectation of translation quality.
