  • The Sociological Turn in Translation and Interpreting Studiesby Claudia V. Angelelli

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 120.00

    The traditional view holds that professional interpreters should be transparent, invisible, passive, neutral, and detached, a view reiterated and reinforced in the prescribed interpreters’ codes of conduct of national and international professional organizations.

  • Deconstruction and Translationby Kathleen Davis

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 43.95

    Deconstruction and Translation explains ways in which many practical and theoretical problems of translation can be rethought in the light of insights from the French philosopher Jacques Derrida.
