Translation is a comprehensive resource book which provides students and researchers with support for advanced study of the subject. The authors examine the theory and practice of translation from a variety of linguistic and cultural angles. Drawing on a wide range of languages, including French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian and Arabic, they explore material from a variety of sources, such as the Internet, advertisements, religious texts, literary and technical texts. As with all books in the Routledge Applied Linguistics series, Translation is clearly structured in three main sections.
Translation includes readings by Catford, Fawcett, Ernst-August Gutt, James S. Holmes, Eugene Nida, Werner Koller, Levy, Reiss, George Steiner, Vinay and Darbelnet.
