Translating & Interpreting

  • Gitanjali Rebornby Martin Kämpchen

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 53.95

    Radice, himself a recognized English poet and erudite scholar, delved into the deeper meaning of Tagore’s poems and songs, and discussed his ideas on education and the environment with an insight probably no other Westerner has. He also translated Tagore’s short stories and short poems, and finally was able to make a complete breakthrough by translating... more...

  • The Bonjour Effectby Julie Barlow; Jean-Benoit Nadeau

    Gerald Duckworth & Co 2017; US$ 8.99

    Why do the French like talking about ‘the decline of France’? Why does broaching a subject like money end all discussion? Why do the French become so aroused debating the merits and qualities of their own language? Julie Barlow and Jean- Benoît Nadeau spent a decade travelling to and living in Paris. Yet one important lesson never seemed to sink in:... more...

  • Untranslatability Goes Globalby Suzanne Jill Levine; Katie Lateef-Jan

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

  • Adapting Translation for the Stageby Geraldine Brodie; Emma Cole

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Translating for performance is a difficult – and hotly contested – activity. Adapting Translation for the Stage presents a sustained dialogue between scholars, actors, directors, writers, and those working across these boundaries, exploring common themes and issues encountered when writing, staging, and researching translated works. It is organised... more...

  • Syntactic Borrowing in Contemporary Frenchby Mairi MaLaughlin

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 75.00

    It is widely held that the large-scale translation of international news from English will lead to changes in French syntax. For the first time this assumption is put to the test using extensive fieldwork carried out in an international news agency and a corpus of translated news agency dispatches. The linguistic analysis of three syntactic structures... more...

  • Translation and Interpreting Pedagogy in Dialogue with Other Disciplinesby Sonia Colina; Claudia V. Angelelli

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2017; US$ 120.00

    Reacting to the Past is a pedagogical approach that incorporates historical role-playing games into the classroom. In this paper I discuss this approach and demonstrate how it could be adapted for translation studies courses. Two games are described: one is set in England in the early 1500s and focuses on William Tyndale’s English translation... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2017; US$ 149.00

    This paper situates the discussion of child language brokering (CLB) within the wider context of interpreting studies and discussions of bilingualism and professional interpreting, and provides an overview of a groundbreaking international survey study that sought to collect information about CLB experiences of people who have grown up bilingual in... more...
