This thesis addresses the issues of direct translation and how they can be resolved by translating from the top down—by first identifying and translating the register and semantic levels of a piece into the new culture and time period. This method is used to translate passages from Old English, Old Norse, and Gothic, and demonstrates the difference between translating formal and informal registers.
