Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Translating Law
Written By: Deborah Cao
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/display.asp?isb=1853599549
Series Title: Topics in Translation
Description:

The translation of law has played an integral part in the interaction among
nations in history and is playing a greater role in our increasingly
interconnected world today. The book investigates legal translation in its
many facets as an intellectual pursuit and a profession. It examines legal
translation from an interdisciplinary perspective, covering theoretical and
practical grounds and linguistic as well as legal issues. It analyses legal
translation competence and various types of legal texts including
contracts, statutes and multilateral legal instruments, presents a
comparative analysis of the Common Law and the Civil Law and examines the
case law from Canada, Hong Kong and the European Court of Justice. It
attempts to demonstrate that translating law is a complex act that can
enrich law, culture and human experience as a whole.
