  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Sociocultural Aspects of Translating and Interpretingby Anthony Pym; Miriam Shlesinger; Zuzana Jettmarová

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 158.00

    Translation Studies has recently been searching for connections with Cultural Studies and Sociology. This volume brings together a range of ways in which the disciplines can be related, particularly with respect to research methodologies. The key aspects covered are the agents behind translation, the social histories revealed by translations, the perceived... 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...

  • Testing and Assessment in Translation and Interpreting Studiesby Claudia V. Angelelli; Holly E. Jacobson

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 143.00

    Testing and Assessment in Translation and Interpreting Studies examines issues of measurement that are essential to translation and interpreting.

  • Textual Translation and Live Translationby Fernando Poyatos

    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. This treatment of translation includes theater and cinema (enriching our intellectual-sensorial... more...

  • Topics in Language Resources for Translation and Localisationby Elia Yuste Rodrigo

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 135.00
