  • Translation in a Postcolonial Contextby Maria Tymoczko

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 59.95

    This ground-breaking analysis of the cultural trajectory of England's first colony constitutes a major contribution to postcolonial studies, offering a template relevant to most cultures emerging from colonialism. At the same time, these Irish case studies become the means of interrogating contemporary theories of translation. Moving authoritatively... more...

  • Translation and Ideologyby Sonia Cunico; Jeremy Munday

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Ideology has become increasingly central to work in translation studies. To date, however, most studies have focused on literary and religious texts, thus limiting wider understanding of how ideological clashes and encounters pervade any context where power inequalities are present.  This special edition of The Translator deliberately focuses on ideology... more...

  • The Practices of Literary Translationby Jean Boase-Beier; Michael Holman

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In their introduction to this collection of essays, the editors argue that constraints can be seen as a source of literary creativity, and given that translation is even more constrained than 'original' literary production, it thus has the potential to be even more creative too. The ten essays that follow outline ways in which translators and translations... more...

  • Traductioby Dirk Delabastita

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 61.95

    Nothing like wordplay can make difference between languages look so uncompromising, can give such a sharp edge to the dilemma between forms and effects, can so blur the line between translation and adaptation, or can cast such harsh light on our illusion of complete semantic stability. In the pun the whole language system may resonate, and so may... more...

  • Unity in Diversityby Lynne Bowker; Michael Cronin; Dorothy Kenny; Jennifer Pearson

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Translation studies as a discipline has grown enormously in recent decades. Contributions to the discipline have come from a variety of fields, including machine translation, history, literature, philosophy, linguistics, terminology, signed language interpreting, screen translation, translation pedagogy, software localization and lexicography. There... more...

  • Screen Translationby Yves Gambier

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    There are three fundamental issues in the field of screen translation, namely, the relationship between verbal output and pictures and soundtrack, between a foreign language/culture and the target language/culture, and finally between the spoken code and the written one. All three issues are raised and discussed by contributors to this special issue... more...

  • Translation and Genderby Luise Von Flotow

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 43.95

    The last thirty years of intellectual and artistic creativity in the 20th century have been marked by gender issues. Translation practice, translation theory and translation criticism have also been powerfully affected by the focus on gender. As a result of feminist praxis and criticism and the simultaneous emphasis on culture in translation studies,... more...

  • Translation, Travel, Migrationby Loredana Polezzi

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The connection between travel and translation is often evoked in contemporary critical theory, both practices seen as metaphors of mobility and flux linked to globalized 'post-modern' society. Travel is a multiple activity, encompassing temporary and voluntary displacement, repeated movement, exile, economic migration, diaspora. Places of origin are... more...

  • Translation and Musicby Sebnem Susam-Sarajeva

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Popular and multimodal forms of cultural products are becoming increasingly visible within translation studies research. Interest in translation and music, however, has so far been relatively limited, mainly because translation of musical material has been considered somewhat outside the limits of translation studies, as traditionally conceived. Difficulties... more...

  • The Semiotics of Subtitlingby Zoe De Linde; Neil Kay

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 49.95

    Subtitling serves two purposes: to translate the dialogue of foreign language films for secondary audiences (interlingual) and to transform the soundtrack of television programmes into written captions for deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers (intralingual). While both practices have strong linguistic roots, often being compared to text translation and... more...
