Book Information


Title: Expertise and Explicitation in the Translation Process
Written By: Birgitta E Dimitrova
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library 64

This book addresses the complexities of the translation process. Informed
by theoretical and methodological advances in translation studies, research
on writing and the expertise paradigm, it explores translation as a text
reproduction task. With triangulation of data from Russian-Swedish
translation – think-aloud-methodology and computer logging of the writing
process - it makes a cross-sectional comparison of subjects with different
amounts of translation experience, highlighting crucial aspects of
professional competence and expertise in translation. The book also
elaborates a method for a combined product and process analysis, applying
it to the study of one type of explicitation: increased cohesive
explicitness of the target text. The results have implications for
translation theory and pedagogy. This volume will be of interest to
translation scholars and translator trainers, irrespective of language
combination, as well as to specialists in Russian and Swedish. It will also
appeal to researchers on expertise in other domains.
