This thesis comprises four annotated translations, accompanied by a discussion. Excerpts from three books were translated from English into Croatian (Kelly McGonigal’s The Willpower Instinct, Mike Savage’s Social Class in the 21st Century, and the UNHCR Resettlement Handbook), and two from Croatian into English (Oči by Edo Popović and Ženski udesi by Živko Bertić). The discussion mainly focused on different features of register, as well as of popular scientific texts, and the changes that arise due to these different features when translating such texts from one language into another. On various examples, it is illustrated how a translation can change due to different use of pronouns, the use of colloquial speech, as well as of figurative language.
