    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 128.00

    ?Let the meta-discussion begin,? James Holmes urged in 1972. Coming almost forty years later ? years filled with fascinating and often unexpected developments in the interdiscipline of Translation Studies ? this volume offers the reader a multiplicity of meta-perspectives, while also moving the discussion forward. Indeed, the (re)production and (re)use... more...

  • The Moving Textby Anthony Pym

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    For the discourse of localization, translation is often "just a language problem". For translation theorists, localization introduces fancy words but nothing essentially new. Both views are probably right, but only to an extent. This book sets up a dialogue across those differences. Is there anything that translation theory can gain from localization?... more...

  • Revisiting the Interpreter?s Roleby Claudia V. Angelelli

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 135.00

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

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 165.00

    Given the relative invisibility of translators and interpreters as an occupation, they are hardly studied as a social group, either in the field of TS or in the sociology of professions. Our research aims to analyze their construction of a sense of an occupational identity and strategies of status improvement, drawing on interviews with six subgroups... more...

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

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2003; US$ 165.00

  • Self-Preservation in Simultaneous Interpretingby Claudia Monacelli

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 128.00

    The image of the tightrope walker illustrates the interpreter?s balancing act. Compelled to move forward at a pace set by someone else, interpreters compensate for pressures and surges that might push them into the void. The author starts from the observation that conference interpreters tend to see survival as being their primary objective. It is... more...
