Abstract

This research paper focuses on the usage of cohesive devices during text translation from Albanian to English and vice versa. Firstly, this paper introduces the theoretical background on translation, text linguistics and the internal part of a text. Secondly, it elaborates the importance of cohesion and coherence, as criteria of text linguistics as well as their role in the process of translation. This research has used the empirical method in analyzing the text translation from Albanian to English, by elaborating the addition of cohesive devices which enabled a coherent translation. In addition, there is presented also the text translation from English to Albanian, which shows the non-coherent translation because of the differences among Albanian and English due to linguistic relativism, demonstrative pronouns and noun’s cases.
