Linguistic Theories and translation studies have long history. Even now, regarding some translation works, translation Studies is placed in the field of Applied Linguistics, whereas in others it is under cultural studies. This is perhaps a sign that it can be studied from a wide range of angles. This paper approaches the problem of analyzing source and target texts, aiming to identify translator’s strategy when translating and considering translation to be a decision-making process. To achieve this, it focuses on a relatively new theory in translation studies, that is the optimal theory.
