Title: Gender and Ideology in Translation: Do Women and Men Translate Differently?
Subtitle: A Contrastive Analysis from Italian into English
Written By: Vanessa Leonardi
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11152
Series Title: European University Studies. Series 21: Linguistics, Volume 301
Description:

The aim of this book is to analyse and evaluate the problems that may arise
from ideology-driven shifts in the translation process as a result of
gender differences. The issue of ideology is linked to that of language and
power and this link legitimates a linguistic analysis. Recent research in
the field of sociolinguistics and related fields has shown that women and
men speak differently. The hypothesis in this book is that if they speak
differently, then they are also likely to translate differently and
possibly for the same ideological reasons.

The book is divided into two parts. Part I offers a theoretical background,
draws up an analytic checklist of linguistic tools to be employed in the
comparative analyses, and states the main hypothesis of this investigation.
In Part II four empirical analyses are carried out in order to test this
hypothesis within the methodological framework set out in Part I. This book
seeks to show how the contrastive analysis of translations from Italian
into English is carried out within the framework of the discipline of
translation and comparative studies.
