It is generally agreed that knowledge plays an important role in
translation and interpreting and that it should therefore be of central
concern to translation and interpreting studies. However, there is no
general agreement about what is actually meant by the term 'knowledge' in
this context, nor about in exactly what ways it is relevant. Also,
present-day translation and interpreting studies offer only a limited
amount of research specifically dedicated to knowledge systematization and
other knowledge-related issues.

This book is one of the first to systematically and exclusively address the
question of knowledge in translation and interpreting. It is a collection
of papers by leading scholars both from the field of translation and
interpreting and from adjacent fields where knowledge also plays an
important role, such as linguistics and computer science. The experts
present a wide variety of conceptions of knowledge and a number of
different approaches to the study of knowledge in translation and
interpreting: some of them draw on concepts such as scenes and frames,
mental spaces and semantic networks, some discuss knowledge systems from an
ontological point of view, and some present more general concepts of
knowledge in translation and interpreting. Along the same lines, some of
the contributors deal mainly with theoretical and conceptual aspects,
others focus on methodological issues, and again others report on empirical
studies. What brings them together, however, is their common focus on the
interface between knowledge and translation/interpreting, and their main
achievement is that, by joining forces, they manage to present to their
readers a state-of-the-art report which offers both a clearer delimitation
of the concept of knowledge and a better understanding of its role in
translation and interpreting.
