The purpose of this article is to provide practitioners, teachers, students and other interested parties with a reflection on what is involved in translating different kinds of source texts. It not only explores a range of theoretical issues affecting translation studies, but takes a practical look at what translating a specific text means. By integrating translation theory and a variety of actual translations (practical exercises based on excerpts from source texts unpublished in Italy), it enables the reader to rethink the translation process through the lens of the concepts of co-text, context and register. It also contains suggestions for teaching translation that incorporate the development of a greater metalinguistic awareness on the part of students.
