Tony Stark asked about translation theories.  I don't know of any for formal equivalence, but two for dynamic equivalence are

E.A. Nida and C.R. Taber, The Theory and Practice of Translation (Leiden: E.J. Brill for the United Bible Societies), 1974.

E.A. Nida, Toward a Science of Translating (Leiden: E.J. Brill), 1964.

Both books used to be available from the American Bible Society, but I have no idea if they are now.
