  • 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...

  • 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.

The author starts from the observation that conference interpreters tend to see survival as being their primary objective. It is... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 158.00

    After the many interdisciplinary perspectives on nonverbal communication offered by the author in his previous seven John Benjamins books, which have generated a wide range of scholarly applications, the present monograph is dominated by a very broad concept of translation.
