    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2012; US$ 135.00

    This book is the first volume that focuses on the specific challenges of machine translation with Arabic either as source or target language.

It provides broad but rigorous coverage... more...

  • 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.

  • Cluster Analysis for Corpus Linguisticsby Hermann Moisl

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    The rapidly growing volume of digital natural language text and the complexity of data abstracted from it have increasingly rendered traditional corpus linguistic analytical methodology obsolete.

  • Complicating the History of Western Translationby Siobhán McElduff; Enrica Sciarrino

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    As long as there has been a need for language, there has been a need for translation; yet there is remarkably little scholarship available on pre-modern translation and translators. This exciting and innovative volume opens a window onto the complex world of translation in the multilingual and multicultural milieu of the ancient Mediterranean. From... more...

  • Computers and Translationby Harold Somers

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2003; US$ 180.00

    This volume is about computers and translation. It is not, however, a Computer Science book, nor does it have much to say about Translation Theory. Rather it is a book for translators and other professional linguists (technical writers, bilingual secretaries, language teachers even), which aims at clarifying, explaining and exemplifying the impact... more...
