The thesis comprises four annotated translations and a discussion. Excerpts from three books were translated from English into Croatian (A Short History of England by Simon Jenkins, Vampires, Burial and Death: Folklore and Reality by Paul Barber and The Map - A Beginner's Guide to Doing Research in Translation Studies written by Jenny Williams and Andrew Chesterman), and one from Croatian into English (Područje bez signala written by Robert Perišić). Translations are accompanied by glossaries of terms, lists of resources and endnotes discussing specific dilemmas, problems or remarks regarding final solutions in the target texts. The discussion focuses on translator’s dilemmas and interventions regarding register, starting with the introduction to the concept of register. This is followed by a discussion about register variables and dilemmas in translation associated with each of the register variables and the importance of defining the register profile of the source text. Finally, issues in translation of literary and non-literary texts connected to register are discussed and demonstrated using concrete examples taken from the four translations from the second part of the thesis.
