  • Beyond Descriptive Translation Studiesby Anthony Pym; Miriam Shlesinger; Daniel Simeoni

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 165.00

    Given the relative invisibility of translators and interpreters as an occupation, they are hardly studied as a social group, either in the field of TS or in the sociology of professions. Our research aims to analyze their construction of a sense of an occupational identity and strategies of status improvement, drawing on interviews with six subgroups... 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.

    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.

  • 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...
