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 terminololgists from
universities in eight countries (Canada, France, Germany, Spain,
Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States and Venezuela) defined the
concepts and tried to present them in pedagogical form, with notes and
examples. The terms describe specific language acts, the cognitive
aspects involved in the translation process, the procedures involved
in transfer from one language to another, and the results of these
operations. All of the terms in each section of the book are
cross-referenced. A dozen tables help the reader understand the
relationships between the concepts, and a bibliography completes each
section.

This vocabulary is designed to be a useful tool and contribution to
the general quality of translator training.
