Most popular at the top

  • The Possibility of Languageby Alan K. Melby; Terry Warner

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1995; US$ 165.00

    This book is about the limits of machine translation. It is widely recognized that machine translation systems do much better on domain-specific controlled-language texts (domain texts for short) than on dynamic general-language texts (general texts for short). The authors explore this general — domain distinction and come to some uncommon conclusions... more...

  • Terminologie de la Traductionby Jean Delisle; Hannelore Lee-Jahnke; Monique C. Cormier

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1999; US$ 68.00

    This terminology collection presents approximately 200 concepts that can be considered the basic vocabulary for the practical teaching of translation. Four languages are included: French, English, Spanish and German. Nearly twenty translation teachers and terminologists from universities in eight countries (Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland,... more...

  • Translators' Strategies and Creativityby Ann Beylard-Ozeroff; Jana Králová; Barbara Moser-Mercer

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1998; US$ 149.00

    In their contributions the authors reflect upon Levý’s thinking on translation as a communication process and on Popovič’s insistence on the importance of re-creating a text both at the surface and deep levels. Examples are drawn from literary translation, technical translation, from audio-visual translation and from interpreting, and the authors... more...

  • Identity and Status in the Translational Professionsby Rakefet Sela-Sheffy; Miriam Shlesinger

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2011; US$ 143.00

    This volume contributes to the emerging research on the social formation of translators and interpreters as specific occupational groups. Despite the rising academic interest in sociological perspectives in Translation Studies, relatively little research has so far been devoted to translators’ social background, status struggles and sense of self.... more...

  • Translation and Localization Project Managementby Keiran J. Dunne; Elena S. Dunne

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2011; US$ 143.00

    The community or “crowdsourcing” project model presents opportunities for organizations to translate content that might otherwise not be financially feasible to offer in other languages. In this chapter, the authors find that relying on the voluntary labor of the community raises a variety of traditional and new project management issues.... more...

  • Subtitling Norms for Televisionby Jan Pedersen

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2011; US$ 128.00

    In most subtitling countries, those lines at the bottom of the screen are the most read medium of all, for which reason they deserve all the academic attention they can get. This monograph represents a large-scale attempt to provide such attention, by exploring the norms of subtitling for television. It does so by empirically investigating a large... more...

  • Advances in Interpreting Researchby Brenda Nicodemus; Laurie Swabey

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2011; US$ 135.00

    Legislation guarantees communication access in the United States healthcare system for deaf citizens and this access is often made possible by bimodal bilingual interpreters, individuals fluent in spoken and signed languages. Yet there is a conspicuous lack of research on interpreted discourse in this setting. With the exception of research on mental... more...

  • The Art of Translationby Jirí Levý; Patrick Corness; Zuzana Jettmarová

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2011; US$ 143.00

    Jiří Levý’s seminal work, The Art of Translation , considered a timeless classic in Translation Studies, is now available in English. Having drawn on adjacent disciplines, the methodology of Czech functional sociosemiotic structuralism and the state-of-the art in the West, Levý synthesized his findings and experience in the field presenting them... more...

  • Perspectives on Translation Qualityby Ilse Depraetere

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 182.00

    The series serves to propagate investigations into language usage, especially with respect to computational support. This includes all forms of text handling activity, not only interlingual translations, but also conversions carried out in response to different communicative tasks. Among the major topics are problems of text transfer and... more...

  • Handbook of Translation Studiesby Yves Gambier; Luc van Doorslaer

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 158.00

    As a meaningful manifestation of how institutionalized the discipline has become, the new Handbook of Translation Studies is most welcome. It joins the other signs of maturation such as Summer Schools, the development of academic curricula, historical surveys, journals, book series, textbooks, terminologies, bibliographies and encyclopedias. The HTS... more...
