Since Rita Copeland theorized vernacular translation in the western Middle Ages as a means by which the authority of a Latin auctor could be at once appropriated and displaced, further important and explanatory frameworks have been proposed for understanding different aspects of medieval translation. Many account primarily for translation from Latin into a local vernacular and/or from (what has traditionally been understood as) a high-prestige vernacular into a lower-prestige vernacular.
