Chapter 4 explores the relationship between register, text type, and translation. Besides the work by German functionalist scholars, we introduce Matthiessen’s context-based functional text typology that characterizes texts according to the eight primary fields of activity. Based on Matthiessen’s classification, we conduct a survey of the text types studied in the literature.
