Discuss the Usefulness of the Skopos Theory in Guiding Translation Practice

In your essay, you need to conduct additional research and reading on the Pragmatic Value and Usefulness of the Skopos Theory. You should include discussions on what is the Skopos theory and why and how it is useful in guiding translation practice compared with previous theoretical approaches (e.g. different levels of ‘equivalence’ and domestication versus foreignization). Make sure that you use quotations from academic works and give examples in the appropriate places to support your discussion.
