This volume contains selected papers from the 4th Language
International Conference on "Teaching Translation and Interpreting:
Building Bridges" which was held in Shanghai in December 1998. The
collection is an excellent source of ideas and information for
teachers and students alike. With contributions from five continents,
the topics discussed cover a wide range, including the relevance of
translation theories, cultural and technical knowledge acquisition,
literary translation, translation and interpreting for the media,
Internet-related training methods, and tools for student
assessment. While complementing the volumes of the previous three
conferences in exploring new methods and frontiers, this collection is
particularly strong on case studies outside of the European and
Anglo-American spheres
