  • (Multi) Media Translationby Yves Gambier; Henrik Gottlieb

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 165.00

    The globalisation of communication networks has increased the domains of translation and is challenging ever more the translator?s role. This volume is a collection of contributions from two different conferences (Misano, 1997 and Berlin, 1998).

  • Beyond Descriptive Translation Studiesby Anthony Pym; Miriam Shlesinger; Daniel Simeoni

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 165.00

    To go ?beyond? the work of a leading intellectual is rarely an unambiguous tribute. However, when Gideon Toury founded Descriptive Translation Studies as a research-based discipline, he laid down precisely that intellectual challenge: not just to describe translation, but to explain it through reference to wider relations. That call offers at once... more...

  • Beyond the Ivory Towerby Brian James Baer; Geoffrey S. Koby

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2003; US$ 165.00

    This collection of essays by contemporary translation scholars and trainers addresses what is a critically important, though often neglected, field within translation studies: translation pedagogy.

  • Challenging the Traditional Axiomsby Nike K. Pokorn

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2005; US$ 143.00

    Translation into a non-mother tongue or inverse translation, especially of literary texts, has always been frowned upon within Translation Studies in Western cultures and regarded by literary scholars and linguists as an activity of dubious worth, doomed to fail. The study, which received an award from EST in 2001, sets out to challenge the established... more...

  • Charting the Future of Translation Historyby Paul F. Bandia; Georges L. Bastin

    University of Ottawa Press 2006; US$ 22.99

    Over the last 30 years there has been a substantial increase in the study of the history of translation.

Clearly, progress has been made, and the history of translation has become a viable independent research... more...

  • Translation Quality Assessmentby Malcolm Williams

    University of Ottawa Press 2004; US$ 14.99

    Outlining an original, discourse-based model for translation quality assessment that goes beyond conventional microtextual error analysis, Malcolm Williams explores the potential of transferring reasoning and argument as the prime criterion of translation quality. Assessment through error analysis is inevitably based on an error count - an unsatisfactory... more...

  • Lexicography, Terminology, and Translationby Lynne Bowker

    University of Ottawa Press 2006; US$ 16.99

    This volume in honour of Ingrid Meyer is a tribute to her work in the interrelated fields of lexicography, terminology and translation. One key thing shared by these fields is that they all deal with text. Accordingly, the essays in this collection are united by the fact that they too are all "text-based" in some way. In the majority of essays, electronic... more...

  • Le Traducteur, l'Église et le Roiby Clara Foz

    Les Presses de l'Université d'Ottawa 1998; US$ 12.99

    Cet ouvrage jette un nouvel éclairage sur une période particulièrement fertile de l?histoire de la traduction, qui s?étend sur les XIIe siècles en Espagne. C?est au cours de cette période que le savoir scientifique et philosophique des Grecs, revu et corrigé par les Arabes, est transmis aux Occidentaux. Clara Foz remet en question l?idée communément... more...
