Abstract:

This volume is a collection of essays based on papers given at the Nordic
Translation Conference, which took place in London in March 2008.

The purpose of the collection is twofold. First, it serves to place the
Nordic languages firmly into the field of translation studies, where
hitherto little research has focused on the Nordic region; the essays
include many Nordic-specific studies and ideas. Second, the book presents
research and conclusions which are relevant to translation studies in all
languages and cultures. Therefore this volume, which covers a wide range of
Nordic languages and both literary and non-literary topics, is
unambiguously pertinent to the Nordic countries while also being
universally valuable.
