Book Information

   

Title: Translation and the Law
Edited By: Marshall Morris
Series Title: American Translators Association Scholarly Monogra
Description:

This long needed reference on the innumerable and increasing ways that the law intersects with translation and interpretation features essays by scholars and professions from the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Japan, and Sweden. The essays range from sophisticated treatments of historical and hence philosophical variations in concept and practice to detailed practical advice on self-education. Essays show a particular concern for the challenges of courtroom discourse when the parties not only use different languages but operate from different cultural and legal traditions.
