The paper is divided into two main parts. The first theoretical part of the work focuses on the remarkable lifes of Dick Francis and Jaroslava Moserová. It also deals with the general theories of the translation. The second practical part first of all briefly defines the plots of the books and their main characters. Secondly it shows comparative analysis concentrating on the types of equivalence according to Dagmar Knittlová and Mona Baker by analysing the extracts from the books.
