Capping the series of conferences on this theme in Denmark, the present volume brings together a selection of the papers read by scholars and teachers from five continents and within all specialties in Translation Studies.

Contributions ranging from discussions on the interplay between theory and teaching, teaching literary translation, introducing students to central issues in translation practice, and historical and social issues in teaching translation.
