The volume contains a selection of papers, both theoretical and
empirical, from the European Society for Translation Studies (EST)
Congress held in Copenhagen in September 2001. The EST Congresses,
held every three years in a different country, reflect current ideas,
theories and studies covering the whole range of "Translation", both
oral and written, and the papers collected here, authored by both
experienced and young Translation scholars, provide an up-to-date
picture of some concerns in the field.

Topics covered include Translation universals, linguistic approaches
to translation, translation strategies, quality and assessment issues,
screen translation, the translation of humor, terminological issues,
translation and related professions, translation and ideology,
language brokering by children, Robert Schumann's relation to
translation, directionality in translation and interpreting, community
interpreting in Italy, issues in interpreting for refugees, notes in
consecutive interpreting, interpreting prosody, and frequent
weaknesses in Translation papers in the context of the editorial
