Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.

This is the fifth revised edition of the best-selling A Practical Guide for
Translators. It looks at the profession of translator on the basis of
developments over the last few years and encourages both practitioners and
buyers of translation services to view translation as a highly-qualified,
skilled profession and not just a cost-led word mill. The book is intended
principally for those who have little or no practical experience of
translation in a commercial environment. It offers comprehensive advice on
all aspects relevant to the would-be translator and, whilst intended mainly
for those who wish to go freelance, it is also relevant to the staff
translator as a guide to organisation of work and time. Advice is given on
how to set up as a translator, from the purchase of equipment to the
acquisition of clients. The process of translation is discussed from
initial enquiry to delivery of the finished product. Hints are given on how
to assess requirements, how to charge for work, how to research and use
source material, and how to present the finished product. Guidance is given
on where to obtain further advice and professional contacts. This revised
edition updates practices in the translation profession and considers the
impact of web-based translation offerings. Industry and commerce rely
heavily on the skills of the human translator and his ability to make
intellectual decisions that is, as yet, beyond the capacity of
computer-aided translation.
