  • Enlarging Translation, Empowering Translatorsby Maria Tymoczko

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 55.00

    Beginning with the paradox that characterizes the history of translation studies in the last half century - that more and more parameters of translation have been defined, but less and less closure achieved - the first half of Enlarging Translation, Empowering Translators calls for radical inclusionary approaches to translation, including a greater... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 43.95

    Since the early eighteenth century, following Peter the Great?s policy of forced westernization, translation in Russia has been a very visible and much-discussed practice.

  • From Paris to Nurembergby Jesús Baigorri-Jalón; Holly Mikkelson; Barry Slaughter Olsen

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 135.00

    Conference interpreting is a relatively young profession. Born at the dawn of the 20th century, it hastened the end of the era when diplomatic relations were dominated by a single language, and it played a critical role in the birth of a new multilingual model of diplomacy that continues to this day. In this seminal work on the genesis of conference... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 43.95

With good humour and even­handedness,... more...
