Extensive research has been done in the field of translation strategies. However, the definition offered by each author or theorist represets his/her own point of view and their views differ from each other.

Therefore, different researchers have investigated and described various translation strategies from their own perspectives. Some best-known theories of this field are described and compared to each other in this paper.
