Comment: Tutors Handbook

Thinking Arabic Translation is a comprehensive and practical 24-week
course in translation method. Adapted from the successful French-based
Thinking Translation (Routledge, 1992) it has been successfully
piloted at Durham University. Clear explanations, discussion, examples
and exercises enable students to acquire the skills necessary for
tackling a broad range of translation problems. Examples are drawn
from a variety of sources, including journalism and politics, legal
and technical texts and literary and consumer-orientated texts.

A Tutors' Handbook is available, which contains invaluable guidance on
using the course.
