Abstract:

This book offers a range of analyses of the multiplicity of opinions and
ideologies attached to rendering, in familiar or unfamiliar voices, languages
known as non-standard varieties. The contributions include theoretical
reflections, case studies and comparative studies that draw from the full
spectrum of translation strategies adopted in rendering non-standard varieties
and reflect the endless possibilities of language variation.

The strength of the volume lies in the wide range of languages discussed,
from Arabic to Turkish and from Italian to Catalan, as well as in its variety of
complementary and contrastive methodologies. The contributions reveal the
importance of exploring further issues in translating local voices. Discussing
dialects and marginal voices in translation, the contributors encourage and
challenge the reader to reflect on what is standard and non-standard,
acceptable and unacceptable, thereby overturning accepted principles and
challenging familiar practices.
