Thesis title:
An Analysis of Translation Shifts in Thai Translations of English Novels

PhD Research

I completed a BA and an MA at Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. I am interested in literature and translation. My PhD research aims to examine translation shifts. I am analyzing how idiomatic expressions, figures of speech, culture-specific terms, and extra-cultural references in three English novels are transferred into Thai, how are translation shifts realized, and how they are received. The concept of domestication and foreignization, which are global strategies of translation, and the notion of translation shifts, will be closely investigated in connection with the translations.
