The use of corpora in translation studies, both as a tool for translators and as a way of analyzing the process of translation, is growing. This book provides a much-needed assessment of how the analysis of corpus data can make a contribution to the study of translation.
Introducing Corpora in Translation Studies:

  • traces the development of corpus methods within translation studies
  • defines the types of corpora used for translation research, discussing their design and application and presenting tools for extracting and analyzing data
  • examines research potential and methodological limitatis
  • considers some uses of corpora by translators and in translator training
  • features research questions, case studies and discussion points to provide a practical guide to using corpora in translation studies.

Offering a comprehensive account of the use of corpora by today's translators and researchers, Introducing Corpora in Translation Studies is the definitive guide to a fast-developing area of study.
