  • 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. The contributors explore some of the current influences on translator training from both inside and outside the academy, such as: trends in foreign language... 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...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 143.00

  • The Translator as Mediator of Culturesby Humphrey Tonkin; Maria Esposito Frank

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 135.00

    If it is bilingualism that transfers information and ideas from culture to culture, it is the translator who systematizes and generalizes this process. The translator serves as a mediator of cultures. In this collection of essays, based on a conference held at the University of Hartford, a group of individuals ? professional translators, linguists,... more...

  • Why Translation Studies Mattersby Daniel Gile; Gyde Hansen; Nike K. Pokorn

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 135.00

    Whether Translation Studies really matters is an important and challenging question which practitioners of translation and interpreting raise repeatedly. TS scholars, many of whom are translators and interpreters themselves, are not indifferent to it either. The twenty papers of this thematic volume, contributed by authors from various parts of Europe,... 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...

  • Constructing a Sociology of Translationby Michaela Wolf; Alexandra Fukari

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 158.00

    The view of translation as a socially regulated activity has opened up a broad field of research in the last few years. This volume deals with central questions of the new domain and aims to contribute to the conceptualisation of a general sociology of translation. Interdisciplinary in approach, it discusses the role of major representatives of sociology... more...
