  • Translation Studies at the Interface of Disciplinesby João Ferreira Duarte; Alexandra Assis Rosa; Teresa Seruya

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 158.00

    Translation Studies has been defined in terms of spatial metaphors stressing the need for disciplinary border crossings, with the purpose of borrowing different approaches, orientations and tools from diverse academic fields. Such territorial incursions have resulted in a more thorough exploration of the home province, as this volume is designed to... more...

  • Translation Universalsby Anna Mauranen; Pekka Kujamäki

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 143.00

    Translation universals is one of the most intriguing and controversial topics in recent translation studies. Can we discover general laws of translation, independent of the particularities of individual translations? Research into this is new: serious empirical work only began in the late nineties. The present volume offers the state of the art on... more...

    This book contains a selection of papers presented in a subsection on translation process analysis at the II Brazilian International Translators' Forum, held on 23-27 July 2001.

  • The Turns of Translation Studiesby Mary Snell-Hornby

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 173.00

    What?s new in Translation Studies? In offering a critical assessment of recent developments in the young discipline, this book sets out to provide an answer, as seen from a European perspective today. Many ?new? ideas actually go back well into the past, and the German Romantic Age proves to be the starting-point. The main focus lies however on the... more...

  • Twentieth-Century Chinese Translation Theoryby Leo Tak-hung Chan

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 180.00

    Past attempts at writing a history of Chinese translation theory have been bedeviled by a chronological approach, which often forces the writer to provide no more than a list of important theories and theorists over the centuries. Or they have stretched out to almost every aspect related to translation in China, so that the historical/political backdrop... more...

  • Voices of the Invisible Presenceby Kumiko Torikai

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 128.00

    Voices of the Invisible Presence: Diplomatic interpreters in post-World War II Japan examines the role and the making of interpreters, in the social, political and economic context of postwar Japan, using oral history as a method. The primary questions addressed are what kind of people became interpreters in post-WWII Japan, how they perceived their... 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. Both well-known and lesser-known specialists in translation studies have worked tirelessly to give the history of translation its rightful place. Clearly, progress has been made, and the history of translation has become a viable independent research... more...

  • Translation Quality Assessmentby Malcolm Williams

    University of Ottawa Press 2004; US$ 14.99

    Outlining an original, discourse-based model for translation quality assessment that goes beyond conventional microtextual error analysis, Malcolm Williams explores the potential of transferring reasoning and argument as the prime criterion of translation quality. Assessment through error analysis is inevitably based on an error count - an unsatisfactory... more...

  • Lexicography, Terminology, and Translationby Lynne Bowker

    University of Ottawa Press 2006; US$ 16.99

    This volume in honour of Ingrid Meyer is a tribute to her work in the interrelated fields of lexicography, terminology and translation. One key thing shared by these fields is that they all deal with text. Accordingly, the essays in this collection are united by the fact that they too are all "text-based" in some way. In the majority of essays, electronic... more...
