Subject: Applied Ling/Translation: Teaching and Researching Translation, Hatim.

Basil Hatim, Heriot-Watt University of Edinburgh, Scotland (currently
Professor of English and Translation, American University of Sharjah, United
Arab Emirates). 
Teaching and Researching Translation reports dispassionately on what
has been happening in both the theory and practice of translation and
interpreting, and introduces students and teachers of translation to
the intricacies of the process and the diverse demands of the

The field of translation studies is first viewed from above, with the
major paradigms being identified. Basic theoretical assumptions are
examined and influential modes of thinking about translation are
assessed. In section two important research trends in the area are
outlined as they have emerged over the years in a variety of
professional settings. This includes questions that research has
answered and those which are still unanswered. Above all, the various
lines of enquiry are scrutinised from the point of view of their
relevance to further research and their potential to address a range
of practical concerns.

The final section offers lists of important resources for the
translator, a glossary of terms and useful internet links. This
section can also be found on the Teaching and Researching Translation
